Local food expert Bonnie Aeschliman does so many tasty things for Wichita.
For one, she writes a weekly column in the Wichita Eagle, which is always full of informative morsels. For two, she runs a nifty cooking school, called Cooking at Bonnie’s Place, at 9747 E. 21st St., suite 139.
And now, Bonnie is offering mere mortals who attend her school the opportunity to cook like real chefs. Aeschliman regularly offers cooking classes led by local restaurant chefs, and she has two coming up next week.
The first is a week from Tuesday, on July 27, and it will feature Carrabba’s general manager Joe Parten’s instructions on “Grilling Southewest Style.” His menu includes roasted stuffed poblanos with spicy sauce and roasted garlic guacamole and pico.
The next day, on Wednesday, July 28, the Marriott’s executive chef Peter Moretti, will demonstrate “4-Star Dining Made Easy” with a menu that includes a roulade of chicken stuffed with tri-color peppers, feta, spinach, eggplant and Kalamata olives.
Both classes are $45, and both start at 6:30 p.m. I’m planning to attend Parten’s class so I can write a story about Aeschliman’s chef series.
