Fearing’s Restaurant Introduces Cooking at the Counter with Dean

Summer Cooking Classes are a First since Fearing’s 2007 Opening, Offering Space for Just 10 Guests per Session
DALLAS, TX. June 2, 2010 — Dean Fearing and his award-winning culinary team will present a series of three at-the-counter cooking demonstrations, including a complete lunch with paired wines, on three Saturdays this summer.
“This is the first time Fearing’s has offered cooking classes since we opened in August 2007, and we’re truly excited about it,” said Chef Dean Fearing. “It’s been years since I’ve led a public cooking class, and this is something really different, with just ten people per class, watching and dining together directly at the counter. Not only will these be the most exclusive classes I’ve ever taught; they’ll also be the most creative and interesting. This is going to be a unique experience.”
Cooking at the Counter with Dean classes are scheduled to take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 26, July 17 and August 28, 2010. Priced at $195 per person including tax and gratuity, each Saturday experience includes 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 wines 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 class, with reservations offered on a first come-first served basis by contacting Vanessa Guevara at Fearing’s Restaurant (214-922-4817).
