Timpano with Tom
May 2019 • Couples
This class was making a Timpano based on the movie Big Night. It was led by Tom Douglas. It was a great time. Tom led us thru the steps, there was plenty of staff to help us out and to direct, all the other courses (apps, salad, dessert, wine, etc.) was outstanding. Tom is a really showman and really seems to enjoy this and was very helpful and friendly. It was my wife's birthday and he was gracious enough to pose for a picture with her.
We have done multiple classes. We do two or three a year. We are already looking forward to doing another class soon.
If you have an interest in cooking or if you just want to have a good time and eat good food, I strongly recommend Hot Stove Society.

Definitely plan on this!
Jan 2019 • Couples
Thoroughly enjoyed a recent “Lunch Club” visit. Requires advance reservations/planning with several different styles of classes. This event was an affordable, fun way to learn a specific menu of items - appetizer, entree and simple dessert. Instructor demonstrates while you eat what they are making. Well written instructions are given so you can make any notes but truly didn’t need to as I read through them. I would highly recommend this as a fun lunch date for locals, a unique way to rest your feet if you are visiting the city and a fun group outing choice as well.

Cooking Show Live!
Aug 2018
My husband and I got to watch the broadcast of the cooking show that I love to listen to on the radio. Tom Douglas and Thierry Rautureau, two of Seattle's most famous chefs and restaurateurs host the show, along with Katie Oh.
If you are a foodie or wanna be chef, this a fun and inexpensive thing to do. Not only do you come away with lots of tips about cooking and restaurants, but you get served a breakfast sandwich and coffee. We had a blast.

Knife Skills let down
Sep 2018 • Friends
Based off the class description- we did not get what we were promised or paid for. While the staff was friendly, we felt there wasn’t enough instruction and information given- also leaving not knowing if this class was supposed to be for beginners or experienced home “chefs”. There was a lot of basics such as how to peel a carrot.... but the dialogue seemed to be assuming we knew how to do much more elaborate cuts without any sort of demonstration to follow. The teaching method was basically their demo for about 10-15 minutes then they would just say “ok your turn” and we were supposed to remember all their techniques and repeat it...not very successful. Not to mention the fact that out knives were dull! How can you lecture about the importance of a sharp knife when several of ours were so poorly sharpened? (Know this to be true when the instructor validated it) We were supposed to get hands on experience sharpening- that never happened. We only used one style of knife and simply cut a potato, carrot, onion, tomato, cilantro, garlic and parsley- while the description made promise of butchery demos such as spatchcocking a chicken/ didn’t happen. Lastly we were promised a different meal than we were given-not the end of the world but homemade minestrone soup and grilled cheese with all local ingredients is more exciting than rice.

It was an ok experience- is not worth $50.00. I’ve watched knife tutorials online that i learned more from. Bummer!

We were with a group of 40 people. We were divided up into 6 groups and made six dishes to later be served family style. My group enjoyed the camaraderie and the good quality meal. Highly recommend.

A Great Time with Great Food
Oct 2017 • Couples
My wife and I attended a demonstration of some of the appetizers that are part of the Tom Douglas Empire. We watched and asked questions while they were being made and then got to sample them. We also got the recipes. They were very generous portions. We had a somewhat rambunctious group on a Friday night, but it was fun. We are going to do another class soon, but this time it will be a hands on class. The kitchen is so amazing, we both want to create something. You don't have to be a "foodie" to have a great time and get something out of it.

A first rate evening of cooking and tasting.
Aug 2017 • Friends
We had a fun evening at Hot Stove. We attend a "demo" of BBW cooking and a most entertaining meal.

Hot Stove is located in the mezzanine of the Hotel Andra. The facility includes a large teaching kitchen with tables for about 30 students flanking the cooking area. Large video monitors showed the "Food Channel" overhead view of the workspace.

Our class was taught by Bradley Layfield and Chris Schwarz assisted by two sous chefs. Using prepared trays of ingredients, they prepared a rub, four BBQ sauces, BBQ Pork Ribs, BBQ Pork Shoulder, baked beans, cole slaw, Brunswick Stew (delightful!), and caramel cake. As they cooked, an assistant delivered tastes (or a portion) of each concoction to each student.

It was delicious. But more than that, it was a lot of fun. At the heart of it, these folks just like each other and enjoy making great food together. It made for a great evening.

Informative cooking class in a fun setting
Jun 2017 • Couples
My son and I took the dumpling-making class. It was a late morning start time, and we were pleasantly surprised by the nice light breakfast choices and coffee that were prepped and ready for us to enjoy before class. It was my first time for a class here. I felt this particular class was a good balance of demo and hands-on practice. The class equipment and ingredients were well prepped/organized and the physical set-up of the work areas worked nicely. The instructor and helpers were knowledgeable and supportive, and made the hands-on portion of the class fun and non-intimidating. (I also enjoyed the soy sauce tasting that was available during the class time.)
