Ultimate Tailgating cooking class engages sports fans in an energetic culinary experience

Grand Rapids, Michigan - Thought Design, a learning studio in Rockford, is kicking off the fall sports season with their Ultimate Tailgating culinary experience on Wednesday, August 28 from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. at their location in downtown Rockford at 10 E. Bridge Street.


"We are excited to launch tailgating season with this fun, interactive and delicious event. Guests will learn how to make a variety of dishes perfect for any hosted sports occasion," said Denise VanEck, owner of Thought Design Learning Studio. "Perhaps the most fun part of the evening is the dinner party immediately following that celebrates the group's culinary achievements with our homemade sangria."

All are welcome to attend the Ultimate Tailgating class, whether experienced chefs or novices. A spot in the class can be reserved for $50, as limited space is available.

"It's encouraging to see people from our community come together to enjoy an evening of learning and fun. These classes provide for a really special experience, especially the dinner party afterwards. Not only do you get to know the people at your work station, but you are able to enjoy the fruits of your labor with everyone in the class," said Chelsie Wyse, cooking class participant. "I felt as if I had been invited into Denise's personal kitchen and spent an evening with friends. It was truly a fun and unique experience."
