LIVEJulia Punj AT HY-VEE-Club Room, 7:00 pm

Our most unusual show/food combination ever! 

Chef Julia Punj will demo how to open oysters, and also prepare pan fried oysters with salsa verde, butter baked oysters, and oysters motoyaki style.  Oysters for a holiday party menu sounds great, right?  So what’s so unusDanielle Georgeual?  Well, that brings us to the other part of the show.

Danielle George shows us how to make a simple and fun yule log.  Brandon Neil is going to make his fabulous sour cream old-fashioned donuts.  Now you understand?  Pretty strange, but I’m looking forward to it.

I’m counting on Tom Allen to ease the transition from seafood to rich desserts with fun music and his droll sense of humor.

See you in the Hy-Vee Club Room at 7:00 pm on Wednesday!
