Virtual Class

It’s the main event, the big headliner, the star attraction – your Thanksgiving turkey! This delicious bird requires some special attention before your loved ones gather around the table. Chef Tom Douglas will show you three different ways to wow your guests with this year’s turkey, including a way to make a smaller portioned dinner, as this year is a bit different. In addition to common tips and tricks when cooking turkey, Tom will also demonstrate his classic fennel seed rubbed roasted turkey, plus brined and roasted turkey legs and apricot and herb roasted turkey breast. When it comes to turkey, you can’t go wrong with a delectable gravy – so Tom will also show you how to make a family favorite: his sweet onion gravy. Enjoy this class and become the turkey pro that you’ve always wanted to be!

Virtual Class:

This class will be very similar to our previous in-person Hot Stove classes, with an instructor that demonstrates how to make each dish “live” via Zoom. As a registered attendee, you will have the ability to watch, learn and interact with the instructor, just as if you were sitting at one of our Hot Stove Society work tables! Feel free to cook along with the group or sit back and let your in-home sous chef do all the work – either way, we promise it will be a fun and educational time in the kitchen!

Accessing the Class:

48-hours before class we will email all registered attendees a Zoom link and class preparation instructions.

Recipes:  We will email you Tom’s recipe packets closer to the date

Refund Policy:  Once a class is purchased it is non-refundable.  The ownership, however, is yours and you may send someone else in your stead.

If you have a question about this class, please email

Thank you!  We hope to see you in the kitchen!
