CROSSVILLE — Jack Scheife’s Art of Cooking Demo includes food preparation, recipe sharing and a tasty lunch. For his February cooking demo at the Plateau Creative Arts Center, Scheife has chosen a new menu that brings warmth and comfort to the palate and soul. Scheife will first prepare a unique pizza appetizer followed by bread preparation that includes two kinds of five minute bread and a slow-cooker bread. Then he will move to main course: a surprisingly easy and scrumptious chili. The finale will be a delicious homemade dessert.

Jack’s Art of Cooking Demo is scheduled for Feb. 10, from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at a cost of $23 for Art Guild members and $28 for non-members. The cooking demo, recipes and lunch of pizza, chili, breads and dessert are all included. 

Scheife will demo as much of the menu as possible, but due to limited time and kitchen space, he will pre-make some of the items. For all items, he will share preparation tips, recipes and Q&A. After the demonstration, Scheife and the class participants will enjoy a scrumptious lunch of demo food. Class participants are asked to bring the following items from home: a bowl for the chili, a spoon and also pencil and paper for taking notes.

Sign up for the February Art of Cooking Class at the Plateau Creative Arts Center, 451 Lakeview Dr. (off Peavine), Fairfield Glade. For more information or to pay by credit card, call 707-7249. Scheife’s cooking classes are always very popular and well-attended, so register early.

Scheife elevates food preparation into an art form, creating beautiful and delectable cuisine. Before retiring to Fairfield Glade, he owned and operated a successful tea room that enjoyed a reputation for fine dining.
