About The Event

Chef Douglas Katz and a few friends will be leading an online cooking demonstration, moderated by Amy Pappas of Chase the Flavor. Chase the Flavor is a food experience series where participants buy the ingredients and local chefs provide the recipe, instructions and community.


Special guests include Jamal-Akil Marshall and Kandice Marchant of Marchant Manor Cheese Shop. Marchant Manor Cheese is an Ohio artisanal cheesemaker specializing in soft, triple cream cheeses run by doctor-turned-cheesemaker, Kandice Marchant.
