The cooking school's team of cooking instructors and chefs work diligently to instill a love of cooking in students of all ages. Inside the Kids’ Kitchen, children ages 3 to 6, assisted by their parents and helped along by friendly instructors, prepare healthy, kid-friendly fare. As they work through recipes, the Future Chefs class participants also learn kitchen essentials such as measuring skills, pot and pan protocol, and how to operate small appliances. During adult classes, adult students roll up their sleeves and dive into multipart recipes, from a Provençal-style zucchini and greens torte to sweet-potato casserole. Adult students can choose from hands-on and demonstration-style classes, and the cooking school's chefs and instructors keep household menus fresh by leading new classes every three months. In addition to taking traditional cooking classes, grown-up students can also improve their eating habits with healthy lifestyle classes. Taught by registered dietitians, the classes cover food's impact on current health issues, and prepare students to make the good dietary decisions that will stay with them for the rest of their long, wellness-filled lives.
Jim's Steakout serves up a classic lineup of philly cheesesteaks, hoagies, and chicken fingers, silencing rumbling stomachs from high noon to high moon with locations throughout western New York.
From lunchtime until as late as 2 a.m. or 5 a.m., each of Jim's outposts fills stingers?or hot subs?with steak and cheese, bacon, and combinations of italian sausage and other meats. Hoagies meet nearly every appetite with three sizes, ranging from a lunch-appropriate four-inch Kaiser roll to an Italian roll that reaches an entire foot long. Whichever size diners choose, they can get their roll stuffed with chicken, provolone, and saut?ed spinach?known as the chicken-in-the-grass hoagie?or any number of other hot or cold ingredients. The menu also rolls out a red carpet for creative sides such as fries smothered in chopped steak and cheese, stuffed banana peppers, and fried mac 'n' cheese bites. To sweeten each classic meal, the kitchen fries up funnel cakes to order.
With its retro black-and-white-tiled floors and candy-colored blue and pink walls, it’s hard to believe that Scoops & More…Ice Cream & Treats opened in 2011 and not in the mid 1950s. This throwback ice-cream parlor sates sweet teeth with decadent Hershey’s ice cream packed into chocolate-dipped waffle cones or transformed into smooth and creamy milkshakes. Owners Donny and Brigitte stock their shop with the ingredients for other timeless treats, such as banana splits and root-beer floats, and amp up classic sundaes with belgian waffles and coffee cake. Open year-round, the shop warms up taste buds during the blustery months with mochas, hot chocolates, and even corn dogs and nachos.
