Dinner Party Cooking Class with Jordan Urnovitz
Apr 24 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

We welcome the AZ Republic 2016 Top Home Chef to meet our Hackett House guests.  Although we have greeted and tasted the foods of the previous three top home chefs, Jordan is the first who had to win his title in a tie-breaker with another contestant.  Josh Hebert of Posh in Scottsdale was enlisted to be the impartial judge.  Jordan’s blend of Middle Eastern flavors won the title of Top Home Chef with Fesenjoon, a Persian braised chicken thigh dish over a bed of mejadra topped with pomegranate seeds and mint.  Sound interesting?  Join us to see what Jordan devises for our dinner on the patio.


  • Amuse: Beet marinated shwarma deviled egg
  • First course: Spiced lentil pierogies, roasted pear and mango chutney, za’aatar labneh.
  • Main: Braised lamb in fennel and orange, prickly pear demi glace,  sunchoke puree, pickled mustard seed.
  • Dessert: Earl grey tea panna cotta, limoncello and pistachio biscotti.

The cost of this class is $50 per person. To register for this cooking class, please call 480-350-8181 or register on-line!

Dinner Party Cooking Class with Chef Lisa Brisch
May 8 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Chef Lisa delighted us last Fall with her ability to create food that was as tasty as it was healthy.  For many of us, her cooking is a dream come true as we learn how to lighten the fats in recipes and yet keep the flavors that make her foods mouth watering.  Yes, she does use cream and butter, and yes, she often cooks gluten-free, and yes we can actually treat our both taste buds and our bodies.   She was one of the few Valley Chefs who contributed recipes to ASU’s project “Let’s Eat Local”, a cookbook designed to help our community use locally-grown produce in nutritious and easy recipes.  She has partnered with Outrageous Olive Oil company to use their products in her courses and to provide us with a tasting of their balsamic vinegars and olive oils.  Come for the tastes.  Come for the nutrition.  Come for the recipes.   Just come and you’ll leave happy.


  • Orange and Radish Salad – Oranges and radish slices over delicate greens with a citrus vinaigrette
  • Shrimp Piccata Pasta – Sautéed shrimp in a lemon and white wine caper sauce served over linguine
  • Green Beans Amandine – Crisp tender green beans dressed in olive oil and sherry vinegar with sliced almonds
  • Individual Lemon Cheesecakes – Creamy cheesecake topped with tangy lemon curd

The cost of this class is $50 per person. To register for this cooking class, please call 480-350-8181 or register on-line!
