Fearing’s Restaurant Announces 3 New Dates for Cooking at the Counter with Dean

This will include a January 2011 Tailgate Cuisine class just in time for the playoffs.

DALLAS, TX. December 15, 2010 – Extending its best-selling cooking class series into 2011, Dean Fearing and his award-winning culinary team have added three new dates for Chef Fearing’s At-The-Counter cooking demonstrations, each including a complete meal with paired wines or beers.

A unique highlight of the new series will be Fearing’s January 22 Tailgate Cuisine class, featuring easy-to-prepare foods for tailgate parties and game-watching on television – ideal for upcoming events in Dallas. The menu for this light-hearted class includes Cos’ Chili Frito Pie, Jalapeño-Braised Carnitas Sliders, and Tacos with Barbecued Thousand Island Cole Slaw, Pickled Red Onions and Dutch Oven Beans. A dessert of Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites with Oreo Crust and paired beers in the place of wines will complement the menu.

Cooking at the Counter with Dean lunch classes are set to take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on January 22, February 19 and March 26, 2011 and are priced at $225 per person including tax and gratuity. The Saturday experiences include appetizers and a sparkling wine cocktail upon arrival, followed by a lively cooking demonstration presented by Chef Dean Fearing, along with Fearing’s chef de cuisine Eric Dreyer and Fearing’s pastry chef Jill Bates. Next comes a three-course lunch with beer (January 22 only) or with wines (February 19 and March 26) paired by Fearing’s acclaimed wine director Paul Botamer. At the end of each session, participants will receive a special memento package from Dean Fearing, including signature culinary products, an autographed chef’s apron, and a complete recipe folder with menus and recipes from the day’s demonstration and lunch.

Ten reservations are available for each of the above classes, with reservations offered on a first come-first served basis by contacting Vanessa Guevara at Fearing’s Restaurant (214-922-4817).
