For all the future chefs, wannabe chefs or those who can’t boil water, you’re in luck. The Castle’s Chef Freddie Greer is hosting a cooking class to help you.
The class will be held at 6 p.m. July 16 at The Castle, 501 Prospect St., with dinner at 7:30 p.m. The class will teach you how to make healthy beef stir fry, potato bread stuffed with cream cheese, healthy cooking techniques, and there’s a wine tasting to boot. The cost of the experience is $45. Greer will host a children’s cooking class at 11 a.m. on July 16. The cost is $15.
Greer began cooking his sophomore year of high school while living in Greenwood, Mississippi.
“I was wondering where all the girls were going and so I took home economics,” Greer said. “I fell in love with cooking and took my focus off the girls.”
Greer won Spike TV’s ‘Frankenfood’ last June by making Gyro Bites, which landed him on The Wicked Hop’s menu in Milwaukee.
He hosted a sold out cooking class last month and hopes to continue monthly classes for the remainder of the year.
“This is something we’ll continue if Beloit responds to it,” said Jody Wittnebel, owner of The Castle.
Other events happening this summer at The Castle include Turtle Creek Chamber Orchestra annual fundraiser at 6 p.m. on Aug. 22.
Tickets are $10 for adults and seniors, students age 12 and up cost $5. There will be a cocktails and silent auction. Pianist Matthew Hollingsworth will be featured.
“I’m very excited The Castle will have classical music,” said Wittenebel.
