“The Art of Plating” Cooking Class


February 8, 2022 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

In celebration of The Art of Food: From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation, the UAMA and Flying Aprons Tucson invite you to create your own edible masterpiece with El Charro Café Executive Chef and food artist Miguel Heredia!

On the menu in this hands-on, two-hour class is a Flourless Chocolate Coffee Torte with a Mirror Glaze Finish. The ingredients providing taste, texture and color to your plate include Chocolate Sand, Crème Anglaise, Raspberry Sauce, Pulverized Almond Brittle, Raspberry Caviar and Sugar Shards.

You’ll work in groups of two or three preparing the components, and then let your inner artist loose for your custom finishing. The class will also hear from UAMA’s Curator of Exhibitions Olivia Miller, and – as a bonus – each participant will leave with a keepsake to commemorate their experience.


The in-person class, limited to 18, will be held at the Catalina United Methodist Church kitchen, 2700 E. Speedway Blvd. Add another layer to your exhibition experience and sign up for this class today. Spots are limited and will fill up fast!
