with Chef Haley O'Brien featuring Lux Precision Fire Grills
HKS in partnership with Lux Grills is pleased to announce this new series of open fire grilling classes featuring some of NWA's expert chefs! In this three-part grilling event, guests will be introduced to the Lux Precision Grilling system of cooking over open flames or coals in order to reach perfect temperatures, get the perfect char, and cook multiple ingredients for a crowd. Join us for one class or buy the bundle and join us for all three!
In the first Open Fire Grilling class, Chef Haley O'Brien will be mastering the Lux grill in the HKS courtyard where she will teach participants how to reach the perfect char on a variety of vegetables to make a charred veggie salsa. She will then move on to quartered whole local birds paired with grilled salty potatoes and herbs she will cook at different heights on the Lux Grill. To finish off with a sweet touch, Chef Haley will instruct participants on how to make pumpkin s'mores with spiced honey over the Lux Grill. Damien Lux, founder and creator of Lux Grills, will be on site to answer questions about this amazing open fire system and it's everyday versatility when using it in your own backyard.
**All class ticket sales are final. No refunds or credit transfers to other classes are available.**
