Watch Seattle Week on Living808 all week long, Monday through Friday, May 14-18, at 4 p.m. on KHON2 and 9 p.m. on Hawaii’s CW.
SEATTLE (KHON2) – Hot Stove Society in Seattle is a year-round cooking school operated by Tom Douglas Restaurants.
Its goal is to offer a curriculum that ranges widely from light-hearted, social classes to skill-building and more challenging classes.
Topics include everything from how to cut a chicken, to crafting a delicious cocktail, and even who’s the hottest chef in Portland.
“Some of our most popular ones are potstickers and dumplings. We have a very fun pizza-at-home class,” said sous chef Lexi Ochoa. “We will do some holiday cookie classes (for kids). We have a junior chef camp coming up in the next couple of months, which is always kind of fun and maybe a little scary at the same time.”
The school can accommodate a maximum of 32 students for a hands-on cooking class, and more than 60 for lectures. All equipment and ingredients are provided.
“We would like to make it very easy and stress-free. We want them to be able to focus, and have fun, and enjoy themselves, and take back recipes and skills that they’ll be able to use at their house and with family and friends,” Ochoa said.
The classroom is also available for private events and company team-building.
If you’d prefer to have someone else do the cooking (and drink pouring) for you, stop by Andra Bar, a Tom Douglas restaurant located at the entrance to Hot Stove.
If you want to go to Seattle, do what Living808’s Trini Kaopuiki and John Veneri did and hop on an Alaska Airlines flight. The airline offers daily nonstop service to Seattle from Lihue, Honolulu, Kahului, and Kona.
