Getting Saucy (Cooking Class)
 with Chef Kitty Philips

Wednesday, January 30th, 2019

Guests will be presented with the menu and recipes at the beginning.  An amuse-bouche and a glass of sparkling wine will be served.  Dinner will then be prepared with instructions from Chef Kitty and served to participants.  Questions answered during class.

Getting Saucy – Do pan sauces or gravies cause you to dread a recipe or to skip it entirely? Love eggs benedict but worry about the hollandaise?  How about a great sauce for a pork tenderloin?  A plain chocolate pudding can really be elevated with a silky vanilla sauce.  You will learn the basics for good pan sauces, a sweet sauce for desserts, and mastering vinaigrettes.

MENU

Mixed Greens and Fruit w/Orange Vanilla Vinaigrette

Pork Tenderloin w/Mustard Shallot Pan Sauce

Sauteed Asian Greens w/Parmesan Shards

Chocolate Pudding/Vanilla Sauce

CHEF KITTY PHILIPS

Not only do we host local chefs from many of the best restaurants in the Palm Beaches and Martin County, we also have a our own resident chef who works along side them at every dining event at Kai-Kai Farm. Chef Kitty is not only part of the team, she's like family. And boy can she cook! Don't miss a change to taste some of her fabulous cooking at one of our many farm-to-table dinners this season. 

A 9th generation native Floridian, Kitty grew up in North Florida near Tallahassee.  From a large family in a very rural community, she learned to cook at her grandmother’s side from an early age.  Cooking has been a joy throughout her life.  After working for many years as a programmer and analyst, she started cooking as a professional.  Brought along by another chef, she honed her skills in the kitchen and now is a private chef.  She has taken cooking classes in Spain and Italy.  She leans toward classic French cuisine but puts a Southern edge to her dishes.  She makes her own condiments along with a line of rubs, spice blends, and flavored oils and vinegars.  She enjoys making jams, jellies, and marmalades.  She is married with 1 daughter and 2 granddaughters.  She and her husband have been in Palm Beach County for 15 years.
