Pete Bendoris of NorShor Nosh is a self-taught accomplished home cook.  From his humble beginnings of eating his Mom’s horrible meatloaf and canned peas, Pete took matters into his own hands to make great, simple home cooked meals.  Pete cooks for his family at least three nights a week and he likes to take on challenges when time allows. Pete is also a homebrewer, cidermaker, gardener, wine enthusiast and is slowly adding charcuterie to his repertoire.  Pete’s mantra is “Life is too short to eat bad meals”.  Pete recently launched his Instagram initiative and YouTube Channel to help others who have the same desire to cook but don’t have the knowledge or confidence to prepare flavorful, simple meals at home. 

Please note: This is not a hands-on class. In this class you will watch and interact as the instructor prepares several dishes using a variety of strategies and techniques. You will sample from generous tasting portions of the demonstrated dishes.
