Whether it's the trick to a perfect strudel or how to balance different meats to stuff your own sausage, there is something for everyone to bring them back to their Oma or Opa's kitchen. Class fee includes demonstration, recipes, one drink, and of course, tasting!

    Come join us for Kulturküche, our German inspired, specialty cooking class! Lincoln Square's own Chef Carol Himmel will teach students how to make Rahm Schnitzel - a delectable pork tenderloin in a mushroom cream gravy - all from scratch.

    Have you ever wondered the best way to brown meat or the just the right combination of seasoning to give a meal that authentic Bavarian taste? Pull up a chair, relax and enjoy a drink on us while you watch and learn. 

    hands-on demo with a pro is the perfect winter experience for anyone resolving to expand their cooking repertoire this year. You'll get practical instructions while discovering the secrets behind one of Germany’s most popular meals. Come experience the warmth of the kitchen, share the camaraderie of a community, and receive helpful tips from the master herself. You’ll want to teach your family everything you learn! 

    Carol has been dishing up scrumptious, homemade meals at her family's neighborhood restaurant, Himmel's, for years. Rahm Schnitzel is one of the meals Carol learned to make by watching her mother after the family moved from Germany to Chicago. So whether you're interested in German cuisine or simply enjoy toying in the kitchen, you must add this event to your calendar.

    For the first Kulturküche of 2020 we have various VIP options, including a Chef's Table inside the kitchen. The front row gets the best view and tickets are limited, so reserve yours today!
