Down-Home Southern Cuisine with 'Cutthroat Kitchen' Winner Chef Shanita Bryant

Flavorful Weekend NightsIf you’re a die-hard foodie, you’ll probably recognize Chef Shanita from Alton Brown’s popular reality TV show 'Cutthroat Kitchen', where she walked away as Champion and ‘last chef standing’ in 2014, along with a pile of cash and some serious bragging rights.

Join her tonight for a lively cooking class as she shares the winning secrets of some of the favorite dishes from her popular restaurant “Magnolia’s” here in Kansas City. Chef Shanita is a whiz in the kitchen and is excited to teach her own brand of culinary expertise in a down-home kind of way as she walks you through the recipes of some of Magnolia’s best-known dishes. 

Tonight, we celebrate some of the south’s world famous culinary traditions, and highly flavorful recipes. You will feel like a welcome guest in Shanita’s home as she celebrates her passion for food and life. She believes that food is only truly wonderful when you can taste the love that went into it! These are recipes that are rooted in seasonal freshness and ethnic diversity while honoring southern traditions of combining the purest flavors, freshest ingredients, herbs and spices along with a Southern dash of culinary passion – plus, they’re just so darn good. 

She’ll introduce you to a variety of essential cooking techniques as she walks you through mouthwatering recipes starting with Red Velvet Waffles. (you heard me…..Red. Velvet. Waffles.), then move on to a southern classic, Shrimp & Grits (uh, that’s right). Next, you’ll tie an apron on and get your hands in on some of the cooking action as you work alongside Chef Shanita to make Scallops & Creamy Sweet Potato Risotto. Yummy! Finally, we’ll end this special class on a sweet note as she shows you how to prepare one of her famous southern dessert specialties! These are fabulous recipes that are destined to become some of your all-time favorites. Welcome to southern cooking at its’ best!
