Lord Fairfax Community College Educational Foundation and Todd Eisenhauer, local chef and owner of Black Bear Bistro & Cellar in Warrenton, VA, are partnering to offer a cooking class series called, “Chef Todd’s Kitchen.” The series will be held at the Fauquier Campus of LFCC with four classes held on Monday evenings in March. The first series will teach students basic culinary arts skills and include unique recipes developed for the class. Additionally, Gadino Cellars will provide wine instruction during the last class.
Eisenhauer is a strong believer in Virginia’s organic food movement and burgeoning wine industry. He actively seeks local food producers to incorporate their products into the Black Bear menu. According to Eisenhauer, “At any time we are using 80-95% all Virginia products,” in the restaurant’s offerings.
The series cost is $240 with all proceeds going to benefit the LFCC Educational Foundation. For more information, contact Chef Todd at the Black Bear Bistro & Cellar, 32 Main Street, Warrenton, VA 20187 (540-428-1005) or call Sandi Pope at the LFCC Educational Foundation, (540) 347-7927.
