This [Up Your Steak Game] is a great class! I’ve been cooking steaks for years, to learn that I’ve been doing it wrong. I picked up some simple but game-changing tips that’s going to take my steaks to the next level (like how to use salts). And it was lots of fun.

I attended an academy class last night with a friend and it was awesome! Literally on 🔥🔥🔥🔥. Desmond helps you to cook better and more consistently by teaching you about the 5Ts of grilling and how to make really tasty food. We did chicken, king island cedar plank salmon and grain fed sirloin steak. A great night!

I’ve cooked steaks but always with inconsistent results. Attended the “Up Your Steak Game” demo class and immediately after I’m preparing the best steaks I’ve done so far. Grill Master Desmond explains the principles and techniques very clearly and his enthusiasm in sharing his experience is apparent. Prior to his class I only cook fairly thin steaks. Now I tackle thick cuts with confidence. Lessons are held at Fyregrill which is also a one-stop shop to grab all the necessities for grilling etc. Highly recommended to check it out.
