Now that the weather’s warmer, it’s time to return your attention to the grill. In that spirit, the County Line, 10101 I-10 W., resumes its monthly Pitmaster Cooking Class at 7 p.m. March 25.

The March theme is “A Taste of New Orleans” and will feature chef Garrett Stephens presenting a multi-course dinner inspired by the Big Easy.

Guests will be able to dine on full servings of the each of the four courses, while Stephens demonstrates how each of the dishes is prepared. All of the recipes are in a souvenir cookbook with plenty of room for taking notes.

  • Grilled Oysters Rockefeller with Crispy Pancetta and Gruyère
  • Creole-grilled Mirliton Ratatouille
  • Nawlins’ Style BBQ Shrimp

The cost for the evening is $50 a person plus tax and tip. To make a reservation, call 210-641-1998 or e-mail garretts@countyline.com. (The last two classes have sold out a week before the event, so you may want to plan ahead.)
