The General Muir has been compared – with good reason – to the Jewish delicatessens of New York City. It’s become a favorite among locals and homesick New Yorkers. Chef Ginsberg, a two-time James Beard Foundation Semifinalist, has a wealth of culinary experience and knowledge. One area he realized home cooks often have issues with is how to correctly use spices. So for this class, Chef Ginsberg will teach and utilize the demonstrations of how to make Lamb Stew, Rice Pilaf and Zhug Sauce (a Yemenite hot sauce) to help class attendees become more knowledgeable and confident with spices.
