This Meetup is past

Location image of event venue


There is nothing better than Van's famous caesar salad at Marx Bros. Cafe, except having the skill to make it yourself at home. Attend this fun and informative class with a friend or two and learn all the secrets from the master himself. He will show you how to select the right ingredients, mash the garlic and anchovies, measure the olive oil and balsamic vinegar and even show you how to coddle an egg. You will sample four recipes along with five of Van's favorite wines.

Private classes are available for 15 or more. Cost is $70/person.

Dates: 9.14, 9.28, 10.19, 11.2, 11.16, 11.23, 11.30, 12.28.13


I did this a few years ago and it was a wondereful way to spend the early part of a Saturday afternoon and money well spent. This is very educational and hands on. Taste about 10 different balsamic vinegars, cheeses, olive oils and even anchovies and croutons. You'll also leave with instructions and notes, and the four different recipes of Caesar salads (Carrs, Bush, Tijuana and Van's). This is one event you will not regret attending...ever!

Call to make your own reservation 907.278.2133. May want to arrange for ride home, or walk about the area until the wine wears off! (

We'll see who and how many sign up to establish an event host, although not required.
