Food Network chef to teach cooking class at IKEA


Forget cookbooks, home cooks are increasingly turning to the Internet to learn how to roast, grill, bake and broil.

That's why you'll find a banquet of culinary legends like Martin Yan and Sara Masaharu Morimoto offering instructional videos at Food University, a free online cooking resource presented by IKEA and Family Circle.

But wait, there's more.

They're also getting ready to launch another culinary tour, where celebrity chefs will guide home cooks through free cooking seminars. And it's coming to West Sacramento.

Food Network's Curtis Aikens, a chef who has been with the cable network since its inception and also is a regular on Good Morning America, will be leading the seminar from 2 to 4 p.m. March 19 at the West Sacramento IKEA.

Aikens, who hosted "Pick of the Day" and is known for his healthful recipes, is one of the few African-American chefs featured on national television, a Food U Properties news release states.

The in-store cooking seminar will feature Aikens demonstrating Family Circle recipes and talking about the importance of local produce, using spices, ideas for quick and easy recipes and tips for entertaining, the release states.
