Sunday // March 4 // 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Sunday Beer Brunch with Aaron

Sunday Beer Brunch with Aaron

Rania’s Catering
Chef Aaron Hoover, of Rania’s Catering, really has the touch when it comes to food preparation and teaching. His classes consistently sell out and the reason is that his teaching method and attention to detail is first rate. Rania's Catering has had many requests to offer classes on a Sunday, as so many people work late hours during the week, so they thought it would be a terrific idea to offer a Sunday brunch class with every recipe that includes beer as one of the ingredients. Aaron will start you off with Crab Fritters with Grilled Asparagus and Roasted Red Pepper Hollandaise. Moving along, the next course of Baked Egg with Beer Braised Pork Shoulder and Polenta is absolutely divine. His salad of Salmon Gravlax with Grapefruit, Pickled Onion and Arugula with a Wit Beer-Dijon Vinaigrette needs no further explanation. Pan Seared Duck with a Flanders Style Reduction over Roasted New Potatoes with Pearl Onions is ridiculously delicious. Banana Bread with an Imperial Stout Caramel Sauce is the perfect finale for Aaron’s class. Class size is limited to 18.  EVENT WEBSITE >>
