Eat This is NBCLA's twice-weekly look at the best meals in town.



    Eat This: Holiday Cooking Classes
    Cafe Pinot
    Chef Kevin Meehan of Cafe Pinot holds a Thanksgiving cooking class on Saturday, November 21st.

    Your job: Get to the restaurant. Our job: Help you order. This week, NBCLA's Eat This journey takes us out for...

    Holiday Cooking Classes: It's that time? Yes. It is that time.

    At the stoves: Several chefs from around town, including Kevin Meehan of Cafe Pinot.

    What Chef Meehan will be teaching: Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Thanksgiving. Butternut squash soup, a ravioli involving cinnamon and Brussels sprouts, and brioche stuffing.

    Brioche stuffing: These two words had never come together in our minds before, but now that they have, we must pause and consider them at length. Brioche is already a pretty wet bread, and stuffing? A foodstuff that always welcomes the moist. A great friendship.

    Date/cost/reservations:Saturday, November 21st, $90, 888-269-5269

    Are other restaurants holding classes? Yes. Zucca and Nick & Stef's, too; find out more at the 888 number.

    Gift idea? No one doesn't like the food-based pre-holiday surprise. Is there a friend who has avoided Thanksgiving cookery for too many T Days? This could be his or her present. Make your pal put some elbow into the holiday. And simply put the following two words on the gift tag before they open up the envelope announcing they're taking the class: brioche stuffing.
