Photo Friday: Cooking Class with Myles Anton

Chef Myles Anton of Trattoria Stella

Lisa Flaska Erickson was lucky enough to attend a cooking class by Trattoria Stella chef Myles Anton at The Box last month. It was titled simply “The Pig” and Myles showed the class how to break down half a pig and how to cut, prepare and EAT the many cuts! (we have a full cooking class calendar if you’re interested)

Speaking of Myles, it was announced this week that he is a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation’s Best Chef in the Great Lakes for the fourth time in five years!
