The 2018 Schedule of Classes has Arrived! 

The cooking classes conducted by James Beard Award winning Chef Sanford (Sandy) and Angie D’Amato are for everyone, from beginners to the most experienced cooks. Sandy has been cooking and teaching for 40+ years in New York City, France, Italy, and Mexico City and as a guest chef on European bike tours and international cruises.  Between 1991 and 2012, he conducted cooking classes at their two restaurants, Sanford Restaurant and Coquette Café, which they owned and operated in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Sandy’s teaching style is comprehensive, friendly and packed with invaluable cooking and baking tips.  His skills range from home-style to professional-style and there are numerous techniques and shortcuts to learn from any cooking or baking dish he is preparing. Although he is a French-trained chef, Sandy’s dishes draw from cuisines from all over the world.  At the cooking classes he will cook from his 1000+ repertoire of recipes including those from his memoir with recipes, GOOD STOCK:  Life on a Low Simmer.

We were so happy to hear this…
“My daughter and I participated in a hands-on dinner class while traveling to the Pioneer Valley for her junior year in college. We were excited to plan our trip around the opportunity to learn from a chef who is literally a legend in our home town of Milwaukee.
From the moment we arrived at beautiful Good Stock Farm, we were made to feel welcome, comfortable and unintimidated. We cooked, we laughed, we learned skills that I am using every day at home. The D’Amatos’ warmth and hospitality, and patient instruction make a cooking class feel like a dinner party among friends. It was an absolutely magical evening for my daughter and for me. I hope very much to do it again soon. I couldn’t recommend it more highly.”                                                               — Connie Gavin, Whitefish Bay, WI
“The meticulously organized kitchen made us all drool. Viv was gaga for Leo, Lolo loved the mixer, and Maggey was impressed with the spices and cozy modern vibe.”
“A beautiful table, a delicious meal. Well fed, laughed out, and ready to try our new recipes out on our own, we said goodbye to Sandy and Angie.  We’re already dreaming about our next visit!”– The Oplinger’s

Overheard at a cooking class:
“When I describe Good Stock Farm’s cooking classes, I say it’s like The Food Network meets HGTV.”

 

THE NUTS AND BOLTS

At Good Stock we are excited to offer these unique cooking experiences (and more!):

DEMO-DINNER  $95.

Relax comfortably in our teaching kitchen while observing the skill of a true craftsman and technician during this short demonstration class for up to 10 students. Use your packet of recipes to follow along and take notes while Sandy gives you professional tips on how to refine and elevate your everyday cooking at home. Enjoy a little taste in the kitchen while Sandy is prepping, then sit down at our family table and enjoy a full dinner along with wine.  Demo-Dinner classes often have an ethnic theme and students will come away with a deeper understanding of cuisines from around the world that may be unfamiliar to them. Each country comes with its own learning curve and Sandy can help navigate the ingredients and spices and show you how to handle them in traditional and contemporary ways; perfect for a night of educational entertainment and delicious dining with fellow food lovers!

Demo-Dinners run approximately 3½ to 4 hours.

HANDS-ON COOKING CLASS followed by Lunch or Dinner  $150.

If you’re looking for a personal one-on-one teaching experience, this Hands-On class is for you. Students work side-by-side with Sandy in our kitchen to produce a memorable multi-course lunch or dinner. Learn varied cooking methods including baking in a wood-burning oven, Tuscan grilling in the fireplace, pastry making, braising, poaching, searing, scalding, sautéing, pan-roasting, direct coal cooking—you name it. Using the seasonal bounty of our gardens and surrounding farms, the pristine fish and seafood from the waters of the Atlantic, and meat/poultry from the organic pastures of New England, you’ll learn diverse, easy-to-follow recipes and techniques to re-create at home. Each student receives a recipe packet of the dishes being prepared and a complimentary Good Stock apron at their first class. Class size is capped at 8 students to maximize interaction, learning and above all else, fun. After each cooking class, we all sit down at our family table to enjoy the just-prepared dishes along with wine. Here at the table is where we truly see how proper seasoning and cooking techniques can build flavor and bring out the best in our local ingredients.

Hands-On Classes run approximately 5 to 5 1/2 hours.

OBSERVATION DINNER  $125.

Start the evening sipping sparkling wine and enjoying tasty hors d’oeuvre with fellow food lovers while Sandy prepares dinner for you in the Good Stock kitchen.  Observe his skills throughout the evening–lend a hand if you wish–and enjoy lively conversation about food, travel and everything under the sun.  After cocktail hour, a 4-Course Seasonal Dinner is served at the family table along with special wine pairings.  This dinner is about celebration so you’ll most likely find it scheduled around holidays or for special events.  It’s also perfect for intimate private gatherings where we tailor the menu to your desire on a date that works for you!

Observation Dinner:  Cocktails at 6:00, Dinner around 7:00

WINE LOVER’S DINNER  $150.  NEW!

The evening begins with French Champagne and hors d’oeuvre in the Good Stock teaching kitchen.  While Sandy is preparing dinner for you, enjoy conversation with your guests and feel free to ask Sandy for some professional tips on how to refine and elevate your everyday cooking at home.  Afterward, join Sandy and Angie at the family table for a 4-Course seasonal dinner.  This is where they go deep in their cellar to share some of their favorite wines they have collected and laid down over the years.  Various regions like Rhone Valley, Burgundy, Northern Italy and Spain and Portugal may be represented to complement the evening’s menu.  While sipping and dining they will talk about their philosophy for pairing food and wine—it’s a perfect night of educational entertainment and delicious dining with fellow food lovers!

Wine Lover’s Dinner:  Champagne at 6:30, Dinner around 7:00

 ::  3-DAY NEW ENGLAND GETAWAY ITINERARY
Friday – Mid-Afternoon to Evening

After settling in to your hotel room, arrive at Good Stock Farm where Sandy and Angie welcome you with a tour of the property and gardens. Then it’s off to the Good Stock kitchen to kick off the cooking with the first of three Hands-On cooking classes with Sandy. Don your apron and open your recipe packet for this light and informal experience including making pizzas in the wood-burning oven. We have a celebratory welcome toast and unwind a bit with a spirited yet relaxing game of pétanque* before sitting down to an evening country picnic with special wines from our cellar.

Saturday – Late Morning to Evening

We meet at Good Stock Farm and begin our tour winding through the local farmlands surrounding the Connecticut River and stop along the way to pick up produce for this evening’s class. In Deerfield, we drive up the beautiful Mount Sugarloaf for a photo-worthy 360-degree view of the Pioneer Valley. We head to the Greenfield farmer’s market to pick up fresh produce and observe Sandy’s methods for how to choose the best products when faced with so many choices.  After a local farm-fresh snack, we pick up our local farm-raised meat from our friendly butcher in Northampton.  Then it’s back to Good Stock for our Hands-On class using all of the newly acquired fresh products from our journey. After class we enjoy the fruits of our labor over a multi-course dinner at the family table along with special wines from our cellar.

Sunday – Late Morning to Mid-Afternoon

We break some eggs and welcome the day with a relaxed Hands-On brunch/lunch class with more delicious wine pairings. Use some of the tricks-of-the-trade you’ve learned along the way and simply enjoy the camaraderie of cooking and learning together. We cap the weekend with a lovely meal and say goodbye with a little memento from Good Stock Farm in hopes that you visit Massachusetts again soon!
