Seattle Chef Tom Douglas’ cooking school, Hot Stove Society, is launching the inaugural four-day culinary immersion program called “Harvest Intensive,” held September 28th thru October 1st. Themed with the harvest of fall, attendees will experience back-to-back demonstrations by top restaurant chefs from the Seattle area and Pacific Northwest, including several from the Tom Douglas Restaurants chef team.

Topics to be investigated with great relish will range from food science and fermentation to fall plants and butchery. In addition to the hands-on food component of the schedule, the Tom Douglas team has incorporated lively sampling sessions with the subjects of wine and cocktails to round out this one-of-a-kind culinary adventure.
