Inexperienced chefs tend to get angry and flustered when they’re slaving away over a hot stove.
But if you know your way around the kitchen, cooking can be enjoyable experience, almost therapeutic.
So if you’ve hit the zone of cooking, why not throw a few beers into the mix?
Not that I would ever encourage anyone to slosh boiling water around while they’re sloshed.
But the idea that baking and boozing can mix well together has worked out so far for Marla Graves and Megann Rogala, co-hosts of Birmingham-based cooking show Drinking Chefs. Described as “two parts cooking, one part comedy,” Drinking Chefs aims to take some of the intimidation out of cooking.
The Drinking Chefs will be performing a live demonstration at 2nd and Charles in Hoover on Saturday, July 21, from 1 to 3 p.m.The chefs will be cooking such tasty, seasonal fare as pan-seared peaches, strawberry-basil bruschetta, homemade ice cream and watermelon salad.
If you’re looking to impress a crowd at a summer soiree, you’d be hard-pressed to find better recipes than those from the Drinking Chefs.
Episodes of Drinking Chefs are available online at www.drinkingchefs.com. They film and post one to two videos a week.
For more information about the Drinking Chefs and their demonstration, call co-host Marla Graves at (205) 902-4035 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And remember: try to not to get hammered around hot objects in the kitchen. The name of the show is Drinking Chefs, not Drunk Chefs.
