|Celebrity Chef Holli Ugalde, winner of Hell's Kitchen Season 7|
At B'Stro, Ugalde will be catering to food and wine enthusiasts by hosting a quarterly cooking series, Fire & Spice, with the first official cooking-class weekend event set for June 24-26.
The Fire & Spice cooking series will consist of three, 1 1/2-hour cooking classes on Saturday and Sunday. Each session will feature a unique menu, giving both travelers and South Florida residents the opportunity to learn a variety of tips, recipes -- and savor -- Ugalde's creations.
As part of her role at B Ocean Fort Lauderdale, the first hotel of the new B Hotels & ResortsT brand, Ugalde will be showing cooking series attendees how to create specialty dishes similar to the ten unique "signature items" that can be found at B'stro on the Beach. They include:
- Hand-made Sweet Potato Gnocchi ($18), made with mascarpone and cinnamon, green apples, dandelion greens and shaved reggiano.
- Beef Filet & Black Pepper Tagliatelle ($24), filet with garlic peppers, roasted sweet corn, basil, parmesan and hazelnuts.
- Spiced Baramundi ($26), a Moroccan-spiced white fish with house-cured pancetta, leeks and English peas.
- B'stro Salad ($12), frisée lettuce, Ugalde's own pomegranate balsamic vinegar, pancetta, peppered sickle pears and organic egg.
If you're interested in attending the Fire & Spice cooking series event, sessions can be purchased individually for $50, or as a complete set. A bundle with one, full-day of classes (3 in total) is $125. Class reservations are on a first come/first serve basis, and must be made by calling the B Experience Manager at 954.564.1000 x5216.
