What You Will Learn

We are excited to welcome Chef Robert McGowan, formerly the Executive Chef at Washington, DC’s oldest bar and restaurant, the Old Ebbitt Grill, back to the NTTC kitchen. During his 17 year tenure there, he oversaw the feeding of 2,000 people daily. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in his home state of New York, he worked at various restaurants, including as the Executive Chef of Sardi’s in the Theatre District and for Ten’s World Class Cabaret. 

In this special class, Chef Robert will lead you through a raw oyster and blind wine pairing, where you are the judge! You will determine which of the 5 wine pairs best with raw oysters. Afterwards, enjoy the afternoon with Chef McGowan drinking wine and sampling oysters prepared five different ways. This Oyster Extravaganza is not to be missed!
