Celebrity chef hosts annual tropical cooking extravaganza

By Staff | Jan 20, 2011

Once again this year, the Jacaranda will be welcoming the Loretta Paganini School of Cooking the last week of the month. This is the 14th year the Cleveland, Ohio culinary celebrity will have taught a series of classses here on the island.

Joining Loretta again this year is Chef Tim McCoy. Paganini and McCoy will teach a series of six classes focusing on using fresh ingredients to make a variety of delicious dishes, such as Artichoke Parmesan Fritters with Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise; Blanquette de Veau with Herb de Provence; and a Honey and Pine Nut Tart, accompanied by Strawberry Ice Cream. Both chefs will share great entertaining ideas, the latest in international cuisine, and the newest techniques for preparing delicious meals.

This gastronomic showcase brings to life the rustic flavors of Tuscany and the Mediterranean, and the haute cuisine of France. In each class, the chefs prepare a complete menu, while students sample each item paired with perfectly selected wines.

The classes are an ideal opportunity for food enthusiasts with discerning palates to gather and enjoy exceptional dishes in the elegant atmosphere of the historic Jacaranda.

Classes run from Monday, Jan. 24 to Saturday, Jan. 29 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. Space is limited. The fee is $525 for a series of six classes, or $95 per individual class.
