Armed with rubs, marinades, spices, sauces, and grill tools, Chef Craiger helps students to master grilling techniques and maximize their specific make and model of grill. Students conduct a phone consultation with the chef in advance to inform him of their specific grill and to decide what they'd like to prepare. Students are responsible for providing their own food, drinks, tableware, and paper products. Recipes allow participants to practice their new techniques after the chef has departed. Classes can be conducted in Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village; an additional fee applies for other locations.
To Grill or Not to Grill
Chef Craiger Van Zee started his grilling career at age 12. Now, after 40 years in the food and beverage industry, Chef Craiger has become a strong proponent of the saying "practice makes perfect." Through To Grill or Not to Grill, the chef has passed his hard-won cooking experience to more than 3,500 students. Chef Craiger smoothly divulges tips and advice to classes with cooking demonstrations and field trips to the mystical talking spatula, and helps clients master their own grills with at-home group lessons tailored to the grill's specific make and model.
