Gourmet Lobster Anyone?

Chef Roger Genoe of the Ravenna Country Market is hosting a free gourmet cooking demonstration at the newly renovated Ravenna Country Market. The session is free but limited to 20 participants on a first come first served basis. Advance registration is required either in person or by phone.

Not only is Chef Roger incredibly talented, he’s also very entertaining and quite funny too. If you’ve had the opportunity to taste some of his fantastic cuisine you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t this is a great opportunity to visit the Ravenna Country Market now that it’s under new ownership, has undergone a snappy renovation, complete with a new kitchen, but still maintains that small town charm and character.

The Gourmet Lobster cooking demonstration will teach you how to prepare and present a fabulous feast, with all the accoutrements sure to impress yourself, family and friends. This is a fabulous opportunity. I’ve always wanted to try cooking lobster at home but was always a bit wary because I simply didn’t know how to do it. Seeing Chef Roger do this in person will give me the courage.

The demonstration will take place on Friday, March 12th from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. The Ravenna Country Market is located at the corner of Grey Rd 2 and Grey Rd 119 and for those of you confused by that, from Collingwood you drive up Scenic Caves Road…all the way up…to the very top (past Scenic Caves, past the Swiss Meadows turn off and keep following the natural curve of the road…then you will drive straight for a while. The first stop sign you will reach is Banks, keep going…the second stop sign is Ravenna…you’re there…the whole drive takes about 20 minutes from Downtown Collingwood).

I have already reserved my space…so there are really only 19 spots left.

About the Ravenna Country Market:
Under new ownership, The Ravenna Country Market has everything you would expect to find in a small town country store. Fresh baked pies, breads, butter tarts, a full pantry of dry and canned goods, plus fresh dairy products. The new owners are planning on carrying seasonal fresh produce and also offer fresh and frozen gourmet to go meals that are fabulous. You can zip by and grab a cappuccino and croissant for breakfast or a fabulous fresh lunch. Many of the products available are sourced from local suppliers like the frozen cuts of beef that are hormone and antibiotic free. You can also find Ashanti Coffee, maple syrup and home made jams and preserves.
