Last year, our favorite pair of sexy business moguls, Tracy Rathbun and Lynae Fearing, launched a spectacularly chic culinary wonderland called DUO just a couple doors down from their equally amazing restaurant, Shinsei. At DUO, you can get everything you need to throw the Dinner Party of the Decade, from spices and sauces to serving dishes and Fatal Attraction-worthy cutlery.
And now, you can actually learn to cook and stop trying to pass off Boston Market as homemade. (We’d recognize that cornbread anywhere.) Most of the classes are super-intimate (12 people or fewer) so that you can get right up in the business of shrimp sautéing, squash pureeing and dessert flambéing.
Course offerings change each month, but often feature celebrity chefs like Rathbun’s husband, Kent. Or how to pair wines with the perfect appetizers. Or maybe creating the perfect brunch from nothing but parsley stems and fog. (That last one’s not too popular.)
On our visit, Chef Michael Napier of Daisy Polk Inn, Dallas’ quaint (gay) bed-and-breakfast, created an amazing four-course southern spread that was as fun to watch as it was to eat. We left stuffed, and that’s rare from a cooking class. We even enjoyed seconds of the most amazing Strawberry Shortcake we’ve ever tasted.
Sign up today and finally learn the difference between how to use a reamer like a pro. Or pull the bone out of a ham. Or pound your breasts with precision.
Man, cooking makes us horny.
