“Meat Genius” Chef Gorji Sells Out Cooking Class In Two Days
The back-To–back Texas Steak Cook-Off Champion spills the secrets to his award-winning steaks, followed by a three-course dinner and wine pairing May 23, 2016.
Dallas—May 17, 2016
Chef Gorji, chef/owner of Dallas’ Canary by Gorji reports that his cooking techniques class sold out within a couple days of opening enrollment. He offers the in-demand classes approximately once a quarter. Specializing in his signature New Mediterranean cuisine, steak and seafood, the two time Texas Steak winner will be revealing the secrets of his championship steak as well as the grilled and chilled Avocado /Chili appetizer and Salmon Arugula salad on the menu that night.
“ I hope I can demonstrate the power of simplicity and restraint from adding too many ingredients that makes balancing a dish difficult. These, I believe are some of the biggest “secrets” when cooking.” says Gorji.
The star ingredient of the cooking class and dinner, the prime beef tenderloin, was recently praised in a Dallas Observer review as “one of the best in the metroplex.” They continued on to say that Chef Gorji is “some kind of a meat genius… we sampled Gorji’s mussels, scallops, duck, beef, boar, lamb and quail, and every single one was cooked flawlessly, with total understanding of each cut’s identity.”
Gorji’s Unique Cuisine Called “Mediterranean With Texas Twists”
His use of local ingredients and unusual combinations such as pomegranates with steaks has lead some critics to coin the term “Mediterranean With Texas Twists” for his cuisine. Following the class, the participants will enjoy a three course dinner of the dishes that were featured.
Grilled and Chilled Avocado with Texas Chili and Yogurt
Smoked Salmon and Arugula Salad with Diced Egg, Compari Tomatoes, Red Onion and Lime Vinaigrette
Prime Petite Beef Tenderloin with Gnocchi Gorgonzola and Grilled Vegetables
Dinner is accompanied by big Pinot Noirs from Oregon and the Russian River Valley in California. Michael Merriman, Merriman Vineyards and Shasha Beard, certified sommelier with Pioneer Wines, will be available for questions and discussion.
