Remove the mystery from cooking steak at home by learning the techniques that you will practice in this class. Our Chef will cover how to purchase steaks, what cuts to use for different cooking techniques and cooking temperatures using an instant read thermometer.
Begin your evening by making a Garden Fresh Green Salad with Apples, Dried Cranberries, Toasted Walnuts and Bacon. Then, working at your own cooktop you'll prepare a New York Strip Steak with Brandy Cream Sauce. Finish with Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes.
The chef will also demonstrate how to marinate, prepare and serve Flank Steak, an extremely flavorful cut of beef.

Chef Instructor: Patrick Aylward
Hello there learning kitchen students! I’m chef Patrick Aylward. I started working in the food industry as a young boy at the age of 14. After going to college for marketing and economics, I dropped out to become a chef. I started working for Jeff Ruby’s Precinct, shortly after moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin working for bakeries, Italian and new American restaurants. Upon moving back to Cincinnati, I worked at Salazar where I learned a respect for food and vegetables that will be instilled in me for the rest of my life. I then worked for Panino a local salumerie and learned a respect for animals that will also last a lifetime. I currently work for Tano Bistro in Loveland, teaching at The Learning Kitchen, and run a small private dining/catering business. I love to cook peasant foods, things with a short ingredient list, that require care, and attention to yield a scrumptious result. I love being outdoors, spending time with loved ones, and showing the local restaurant community support. I aim to empower people who step through our doors of the learning kitchen. Picking up a knife and turning the heat on can be very intimidating. I hope that through my experience and excitement we can empower you to cook new things, buy new ingredients, and explore the limits of your kitchen after taking a class with us. Cheers! I hope to see you soon.
