Our Highland Park location proudly announces the return of the Kicking Ash Summer Grilling Series, held in Highland Park’s Port Clinton Square. The Kicking Ash classes are taught by renowned chefs including Real Urban Barbecue owner Jeff Shapiro and Executive Chef Dean Eliacostas, former Executive Chef of Carmichael’s Steak House.
The menu for Saturday, June 25 features grilled flat iron steak with charred tomatoes and grilled ratatouille.
The Kicking Ash Summer Grilling Series teaches guests the art of preparing, grilling and serving a variety of products using techniques that they can implement at home all summer long. Each class will include hands on lessons in the art of smoking and grilling and will offer opportunities for guests to ask questions and expand their knowledge in and out of the kitchen.
Each Kicking Ash participant will be provided their own grill, knife, cutting board and seasonings to prepare a variety of dishes featuring beef, pork, seafood, seasonal fruit and vegetables, and more based on their selected course. Participants will be sent home with a Real Urban Barbecue care package and recipe cards for the items they prepared so they can recreate their masterpiece at home!
Kicking Ash classes are geared towards beginners and expert grillers alike. Let Real Urban Barbecue teach you new skills and recipes to last a lifetime!
