Upcoming Events: How Do The British Taste Wine?

Date night doesn't mean someone else has to cook, but it also doesn't mean you have to cook in your own kitchen. Learn from some of the best during Brennan's Date Night Cooking Class: East Meets West on Friday, July 25, at 6:30 p.m. For $150 per couple, Brennan's of Houston's executive chef Danny Trace will teach you how to prepare a three-course meal featuring Asian-style dishes; each is paired with a cocktail. The first course includes pomegranate-glazed yellowfin tuna served with head-on shrimp, baby bokchoy, corn and lemongrass shellfish broth; this dish is paired with a Grand Mandarin cocktail. Next, Trace will demonstrate how to make Crispy Pekin Duck with dirty fried rice and a duck egg, paired with a Forbidden City Sling cocktail. For dessert, he will prepare ginger-glazed pineapple crisp with Thai rum, cashew streusel, peanut brittle and coconut ice cream, paired with a Canton Empress cocktail.
