" Participants will be carefully walked through the full process including fully breaking down and cleaning a live dungeness crab, the thought process behind every step, how to adjust spice level during mise en place, properly cooking it and karaoke break time while waiting for the crab to simmer in the uniquely unctuous sauce (that attendees will sop up with Buttermilk Beer Beignets—which will also be taught) that makes this dish an incredibly special treat and highly sought after."
