Alumni Winter Cooking Class

Chef Amy von LangeChef Amy von Lange, co-owner of Schola cooking school in Baltimore, hosted a special virtual cooking class for University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) alumni.

The class took place  Monday, Jan. 25, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Chef Amy showed us how to prepare two delicious comfort foods — a chicken pot pie and a chocolate hazelnut tart that also can be prepared as a pie. Before the event, registered attendees were sent a link to join and a list of ingredients needed to work virtually alongside Chef Amy to prepare their dinner. If you would like a copy of the recipes, please download the accessible pdf.

Scola offer two types of hands-on class experiences — technique-driven and menu-driven. The technique classes take an in-depth look at the topic, explore many aspects of where and how it is used, and produce different versions of the studied subject for the class to enjoy. The menu-driven classes focus on the published menu and its preparation, concluding with the class dining on its food creation. When in Baltimore, explore cooking class options here.
