Tonight: Make Fried Foods for Hanukkah
Where: Loft in West Oakland (exclusive!)
When: Tues., December 20, 7 p.m.
The rundown: As any good Jew or shiksa knows, Hanukkah is all about the fried food. Hence, we are all about Hanukkah. Let's take that burning oil and fry up some delicious shiz. Gotta love the holidays! Tonight's class from vegetarian chef Philip Gelb promises to be good 'n' greasy -- students will make potato chips with rosemary salt, latkes and applesauce, donuts, lotus root and sweet potato tempura, and pumpkin pakora. No joke, our mouths literally started watering in anticipation. Having tasted Chef Gelb's amazing food before, we're guessing the man makes a mean fried food.
The class is very hands-on, so wear something you don't mind burning after because that smell is a bitch to get out. Let the festivities begin!
If you're interested in attending, just email Philip or call him at 510-393-6096.
