Kent Rathbun Announces 2012 Dirty Dozen Cooking Classes

On your mark, get set, email. Kent Rathbun’s interactive cooking classes, The Dirty Dozen, sell out fast. They’re pricey but everyone I’ve spoken with who has taken one (or twelve) loves them. Jump for the details. Great holiday present for the budding chef in your life.

Jump for the joy of the season.

The Dirty Dozen Cooking Class is an interactive cooking class. Students arrive at Abacus in Dallas on a Sunday afternoon and receive a personalized Abacus chef’s jacket. The class is then divided into four teams. The teams are headed up by Executive Chef/Partner Kent Rathbun, Corporate Chef Aaron Staudenmaier, Abacus Executive Sous Chef Daniel Burr, and Abacus Pastry Chef Rick Griggs. Each team spends the day preparing one of four courses, which includes dessert or an impressive buffet. At the end of the day, each student invites one guest for dinner, wine, and a great time. Instead of leaving with recipes, you will leave with the knowledge of “how to.”

Once again we are doing the sign up differently. Since our email list is so large, it takes 1/2 a day for the email to get to everyone. This did not leave an opportunity for everyone to have a fair chance at getting a spot. The January to June schedule will be posted at 10 am on December 14 and once again will be done by email only. The students will be picked in order of the time stamp on the incoming email. The classes will be posted at Dirty Dozen Schedule.

  1. If you are looking for a hands-on class in Dallas these are great to attend. You spend three+ hours preparing multiple dishes and learning to oversalt food is not one of the items.

  2. Donna, will the class Nancy would join be comped for Nancy in exchange for the free plug she just gave Kent Rathbun’s pricey cooking classes, or are you saying she can pay for the pricey class if she wants to join?
