About the Dirty Dozen Cooking Class
What is it like to work alongside some of the most celebrated chefs in Dallas? The Dirty Dozen cooking classes are your exclusive opportunity to learn secrets and practice techniques taught by the masters themselves. Since 1999, the Dirty Dozen is one of Dallas’ most coveted events.
Upon arrival at the Dallas 5-star restaurant, Dirty Dozen students don their personalized chef’s coats to begin hands-on instruction. The students are divided into four teams:
Executive Chef: Christopher Patrick
Executive Sous Chef: Chad Bowen
Abacus /Jasper’s Guest Chef
Your Dirty Dozen cooking class team spends a Sunday preparing one of four courses or a fabulous buffet. Abacus is closed so you have the run of the kitchen. The day culminates in an intimate dinner with paired wine and the opportunity to share the experience with one invited guest of your choice. You’ll walk away as a Dirty Dozen alum with a new or rejuvenated appreciation for extraordinary cuisine and knowledge that only comes with learning from the masters.
