Interesting Events – Demo and Dine – Clarity, Vienna, VA

One of my favorite restaurants in Northern VA is Clarity in Vienna, Virginia.  They have received numerous accolades and continue to be in the news for their outstanding food and service.  I have been to one of Chef Jonathan Krinn’s Demo and Dine events and I cannot say enough good things about it.  When I received word that they are expanding their sessions and offerings, I just had to share with all of you.  If you are in the local area or visiting Washington, DC, these events are ones you will not want to miss.  I have been to one Demo and Dine and cannot wait to attend another one of these great food events at Clarity.

 “Dinner and a Demo” cooking classes at Clarity’s Kitchen Counter, where you eat a four course tasting menu paired with wines and Chef Jonathan Krinn, demonstrates and explains how everything is made. Classes are a combo of cooking class / TEDTalk because not only do we cook, but we talk cooking techniques, alternate preparations, “what do I do if…” situations, and my “cooking rules to live by” – trust me, it turns into a party by the second course. Jonathan’s goal is for you to shop with confidence because you have the skill set to choose and cook whatever is freshest at the market.
