CHEESE MAKING
 

Chef Cinzia

Presents

HANDS-ON CHEESE MAKING



Freshly made mozzarella is a royal treat, best devoured when the cheese still glistens with whey. Creamy fresh ricotta cheese is sublime and, when done correctly, makes store-bought a distant second. 

Join us in the Culinary Center today to learn to make both of these tasty cheeses and to enjoy them at their freshest. 


Today's Menu:

Fresh Ricotta Cheese

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese

Simply Spaghetti, Tomato, Basil, and Fresh Mozzarella Cheese

This is a HANDS-ON style class

House wine, beer, sparkling water, and soft drinks are included. Other wines by the bottle and the glass are available at an additional charge.

Have you heard about our fun cupcake baking classes?  Here’s what people are saying:

“(I) learned a lot and can say the cupcakes we made were better than any other cupcake I have ever tasted!!!!!” – Mark

“I loved the class and now have 6 new recipes to try...Always fun. We had a great group.” – Lauretta

“This was the first class I have taken and I will definitely be returning!” – Toni

“Charla is a very down to earth, friendly person, with so much great information. I love taking her classes.” - Deborah

Chef Dave, Karen, and the Rolling Pin staff are proud to welcome back Chef Devin Davis to the RP Culinary Center.  Devin was a champion baker and good cook before he ever came across the Rolling Pin.  He had numerous pie and baking prizes to his name, so he was no stranger to the kitchen.  His family has all long been supporters of his dream of being a chef.  He has been cooking for them for years.


FOX 13 APPEARANCE BEFORE NYC

Chef Devin grew up in a half Italian family.  He was raised on traditional Italian food passed on from his great-grandmother. Devin's mom Tina sought out Chef Dave and asked him to allow Devin and his sister to attend their first RP class, Knife Skills, back in June 2010.  She assured him  they were capable of holding their own and were there to hone their skills. Devin attended many more classes with Chef Dave and the other in-house chefs.  He picked up new skills from each and made them his own. He attended classes with Top Chef contestants, watching their every move and asking a MILLION questions. Soon he become one of the first RP Assistants under the age of 18 and then to sous chef with Chef Dave.  The rest is history. 

Last year, Devin found out about the Nationwide Scholarship Competition hosted by Food Network's Chopped and the Art Institute.  He decided to take a chance and apply.  He breezed through several entry levels and then won the Tampa Competition where he represented The Art Institute of Tampa. Then he got the news: he would be one of 4 finalists out of 84 around the US to compete in NYC, all based on his performance at the Florida Competition. It was exciting and tense. He knew he had the skills and the desire, but that the others must have them, too. So it was off to NYC and the Food Network Studios.  After a full day of competition, lots of waiting, and a bit of sightseeing, Devin was declared the 2014 Food Network Chopped Scholarship Challenge WINNER! 

CONGRATS CHEF DEVIN!  We are so proud of you and your accomplishments.

AUTHENTIC MEXICAN TACOS



Tacos. There are a million ways to make tacos. Today we will explore some very delicious varieties that are unusual to find in the States. Of course, Chef Rene will be sharing some of his favorites.

Come and learn to cook and taste culinary treasures from the heart of Mexico with Chef Rene, founder of Taco Bus


Tonight's Menu:

Fried Taco from Michoacan
Filled then deep fried, with a salsa. It eats like a stuffed corn chip, it's salty and delicious finger food to put on the table family style for a dinner or to watch a game on TV.

Filet Mignon with Mushrooms, Peppers, and Slow-roasted Onions
This is my favorite taco, form northern Mexico, in the style cortadillo.

Taco Tijuanero
A taco from Tijuana, close to the sea of Cortez in the state of Baja California.This is the surf and turf quesadilla, with octopus, shrimp, and steak filet in a taco with melted “mozzarella” type cheese and salsa. Multiple flavors and textures in your mouth complement each other, deliciously.

Sweet Beer Ice Cream
You don’t have room for dessert, yet we will try to tempt you. Tacos pair very well with beer, and beer pairs very well with honey, vanilla, and cinnamon. So here I made beer ice cream. I am using a craft beer from a small brewery with awesome beer, the St. Pete Brewery.  Be prepared to be surprised!

LET'S GO CRABBIN'
 

Todd Lopez
 
Presents


LET'S GO CRABBIN'

Ybor City, located in Tampa, Florida had a substantial Italian, Cuban and Spanish immigrant community back in the early 1900s. The Italian immigrants brought with them the tradition of serving seafood over pasta, which remained a prominent culinary influence in the growing city. The result was the birth of the essential Tampa dish, “jaibas enchiladas,” which basically is linguine with crab meat sauce. Everyone in town soon knew about the dish, and it became known as “Crab Chilao” in the local dialect.

This is a simple and elegant dish, so almost every family in Ybor City developed their own version, and those recipes have been handed down over the past one hundred years.

Join Chef Todd as he creates this historic dish, his grandmother would be proud. Let’s dig in!

 


Tonight's Menu: 

Classic Ceasar Salad

Pancetta Wrapped Grilled Shrimp with Garlic Aioli

Chef Todd’s Jaibas Enchiladas (Crab Chilao)

Couples cooking together is always fun and exciting.  Come as a couple or as a group. Learn some new recipes and meet some new people too!  Tonight's fare replicates the flavor of a grilled dinner without ever stepping outside.  Your oven's broiler is an underused workhorse that lets you prepare meals splatter free.  This tool is just like the oven, but heats up quicker and cooks twice as fast.  It is a blast of direct dry heat that seals in juices as it perfectly carmelizes the outside of meats, seafood, and vegetables.  Result: delicious dinner in a flash!  

Come join in the fun!

Broiled Shrimp Tacos

Broiled Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Broiled Spicy Pork and Pineapple

Broiled Summer Peaches with Butter & Broiled Pound Cake and a Mascarpone Sauce

Presents


SPANISH STYLE COOKING

CHICKEN VALENCIA




Yellow rice & chicken valencia, the traditional dish from Ybor City, is one of the most famous Spanish dishes in the world. For many Anglos in the Bay area, chicken and yellow rice was an accessible gateway into the seemingly exotic world of Latin cooking. Back in 1899, legend has it that a few of Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders ordered arroz con pollo from the saddle at Tampa’s Las Novedades restaurant, opened in 1890. Ironically, the dish came to Tampa from Spain, who the Rough Rider troops would soon be fighting.

Join Chef Anthony and Linda for a night of Spanish flavors and a bit of the old Tampa Bay.

Tapas
Cool Summer Gazpacho

Traditional "1905 Salad"

BENTON'S BACON BONANZA
 

Chef Dave
Presents

BENTON'S BACON BONANZA


All hail the pig! It's time to go hog-wild and dig into our best bacon-centric dishes. Everything is better with bacon!

Bacon is one of the best ingredients to cook with and enjoy.  Tonight we feature BENTON'S BACON from Madisonville, Tennessee.   Chef Dave got turned onto the "world's best bacon" by one of Rolling Pin's foodie customers.  After being presented with a pound of this amazing bacon, Chef Dave was off to find it and bring it to Brandon.  We have had Benton's Bacon in the retail store for a few years and cook with it in many recipes.

Although the hands of time and technology have sculpted many aspects of our modern world, at Benton’s Smoky Mountain Country Hams and Bacon they have upheld the traditional dry-curing process and are striving to produce world-class country hams and bacon.

Benton's business was started in 1947 by the late Albert H. Hicks, a dairy farmer who began curing and selling country hams out of a painted block building. Allan Benton and his employees have honed the dry-curing of hams and bacon into a culinary art and have catapulted the products from a simple breakfast mainstay into the world of gourmet cooking, where they have been praised for their characteristic flavor.  Hickory smoking is performed in a small, wood-stove smokehouse behind the business, imparting a distinct smoked flavor that most of us prefer.

Hope you can join us, because Benton's Bacon is the best bacon you will ever taste! 


Tonight's Menu:

Hot Bacon Crab Dip with Crusty Bread


Bacon Wrapped Smoked Gouda Stuffed Chicken Breast

Braised Kale with Bacon and Onion

Bacon Roasted New Pototoes

Oooey Gooey Maple Bacon Chocolate Brownies with Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
