Father’s Day gift alert: The Mercury chef Chris Ward is hosting a “Grillin’ and Chillin'” cooking class and lunch on June 27 (a week after Father’s Day, but he won’t mind) at the restaurant. The price ($125) includes a lesson on selecting and seasoning cuts of meat and seafood and how to properly grill them. A tasty lunch is included.
Of course, anyone is welcome to participate, not just lucky dads. My dad doesn’t even know how to turn on a grill, so this isn’t an option for me. A Hasty Bake oven will also be raffled off. For reservations call 972-960-7774.
