The Seasoned Chef Cooking School Adds New Mix Match Make Take Cookbook Class to Its July Calendar

Sign up now for an immersive, hands-on cooking class showcasing the recipes from Chef Dan Witherspoon's innovative new cookbook.

DENVER, CO - Fresh off the release of Mix Match Make Take: High Energy Food for High Energy People, a new cookbook from Chef Daniel Witherspoon, lead instructor of The Seasoned Chef Cooking School, comes Mix Match Make Take: Make Hot, Take Hot, Chef Witherspoon's latest cooking class celebrating a selection of recipes from his cookbook.

The interactive cooking class, taught by Chef Witherspoon and scheduled for Wednesday, July 24 from 6 to 9:30 p.m. at The Seasoned Chef Cooking School, will take recreational home cooks on a culinary journey through some of Chef Witherspoon's favorite Mix Match Make Take recipes. "We'll show attendees how to get the most out of the new cookbook, a concept that favors delicious, wholesome and travel-friendly food. This incorporates various mix-and-match recipes that showcase how you can cook just once and use the 'overstock' - my word for leftovers - to create completely different dishes for the rest of the week," says Chef Witherspoon.

Mix Match Make Take is a 157-page book of easy-to-master recipes, showcasing more than 100 diverse menu components that include proteins, vegetables, foundations and flavors. Beautiful photographs from local food photographer Jennifer Olson, grace the pages, making the dishes come alive.

Mix Match Make Take was written after Chef Witherspoon was diagnosed in 2016 with multiple myeloma, a rare blood cancer. "I wrote Mix Match Make Take after my cancer diagnosis because I knew that my diet was one of the few things that I could control, and the recipes supported my healing," says Chef Witherspoon who shares the story of his cancer battle - and how he beat it - with class participants.

Attendees will also receive a signed copy of Mix Match Make Take: High Energy Food for High Energy People, and participants are asked to bring their own Tupperware containers to the class. "Everyone will go home with overstock," says Chef Witherspoon.

Here are the five dishes that participants will make, eat and take home:

  • Spicy Bison Meatballs with Tomato Pepper Piperade and Squash Noodles

  • Grilled Flatiron Steak with Wild Mushroom Salsa, Cauliflower Risotto and Sautéed New Potatoes

  • Chili Rubbed Breast of Chicken with Black Bean Relish and Creamy Polenta

  • Italian Sausage, Braised Fennel, Peppers and Roma Tomatoes with Hominy Grits

  • Shrimp and Vegetable Stir Fry with Steamed Rice, Turmeric Ginger Curry and Tamari

The class is $100 per person and participants can register here: Mix Match Make Take Cooking Class: Make Hot Take Hot.
