Sur La Table is adding some spice to its online cooking classes with the inclusion of a slate of celebrity-led events during the upcoming holiday season.
The first of Stewart’s classes will be held on Friday, November 12. The timing of the cake baking and decorating class coincides with the release of her 97th cookbook Cake Perfection.
The following Friday, Stewart will host a class featuring some of her family Thanksgiving recipes, and on December 10 she will host her special Christmas class.
Lagasse will host his cooking class on Wednesday, November 24, with a focus on the holidays.
Sur La Table said it will be announcing additional celebrity chef-hosted online classes in the coming weeks.
The inaugural Martha Stewart class will showcase a recipe from Cake Perfection, Martha’s newest cookbook that includes 125 cake recipes for all occasions. Seats in this Sur La Table class are now available for $49 and will include a copy of her new cookbook as a gift with purchase. In the class, attendees will get a virtual look inside Martha’s kitchen, where she will demonstrate how to make Carrot Cake with White Chocolate Frosting.
Stewart will also be hosting a Thanksgiving-themed class in November. She will demonstrate how to prepare some of her favorite family recipes, including Martha’s Mom’s Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans with Frizzled Onions and Pink Lady Apple Crisp. Finally, December’s Christmas class will feature recipes and entertaining tips to focus on the most wonderful time of the year.
“This year’s holiday celebrations will surely be different than in years past, but we have many ideas and ways to keep traditions relevant and our families happy and well-fed,” Stewart said. “Our classes are designed to be fun, inspiring and useful.”
During Lagasse’s class, the renowned chef will be sharing some of his personal family favorites for the holidays.
“I have always been a huge fan of Sur La Table and I am really excited to reconnect with the Sur la Table audience on one of my favorite topics, holiday recipes,” he said. “Cooking with family is so important to me and I encourage families who live apart to share in this experience.”
Carolyn D’Angelo, president of the Home Division at Marquee Brands, the parent company of Sur La Table, added, “The roster of world-renowned chefs starting with Martha and Emeril will elevate the interactive online cooking experience and provide invaluable information to our customers.”
A list of ingredients along with the tools and gadgets needed, all available on SurLaTable.com and in-stores, is provided prior to class. Classes will be open to 1,000 participants and can be booked at http://www.surlatable.com/martha-stewart.
