Chef Ben Altschul and Chef Sami Fgaier will inspire class participants with their masterful instruction as they prepare healthy, budget-conscious dishes with a focus on locally-grown foods and French-Mediterranean style techniques.

The IR Family is quite familiar with the culinary expertise of Madison’s own, Chef Ben Altschul; His restaurant, The Tip Top Tavern, hosted our December event, “A Holiday Brunch.” Chef Altschul prioritizes local flavors in his cooking, and works to reflect the spirit of the region on his menu. Chef Altschul seeks to expand on his success at The Tip Top Tavern with The Atrium, coming soon to downtown Madison. Chef Altschul will lead the Saturday class.

Chef Sami Fgaier comes from a long line of master cooks, and brings a lifetime of experience and a cosmopolitan perspective to every hand-crafted dish. Chef Fgaier refined his culinary skills at Le Cordon Bleu, Paris and delights palates around the globe with his Mediterranean-inspired French cuisine. Chef Fgaier started his catering service, Le Personal Chef, in 2009. Chef Fgaier will lead the Sunday class.
