Whether you’re an amateur who never felt comfortable in the kitchen or an advanced home cook wanting to take your skills to the next level; our four week series classes are just right for you. You will join our chefs for four fun-filled evenings of intensive cooking adapted to the home. Instead of only teaching you recipes, we go beyond them and explore the techniques that are the foundations for all recipes.
During this exciting four-week course, you will become well-versed in the fundamentals of cooking. Through hands-on cooking and chef demonstrations, you will learn knife skills, kitchen terminology, stocks, sauces, dry-heat cooking methods (roasting, grilling, sautéing, pan-frying, and stir-frying), and moist-heat cooking methods (braising, shallow poaching, deep poaching, and steaming). By understanding the foundation of a recipe (what makes it work) you pull it off to perfection every time. You’ll learn the basic science and proper cooking methods that will make all cooking a breeze, from quick weeknight family meals to entertaining for a crowd!
Each day’s session combines the chef’s lecture and demonstration with individual hands-on execution of recipes that feature the essential techniques in modern cooking. At the end of the day, you and your fellow students will enjoy your finished dishes and engage in an informal discussion and review of techniques and culinary topics. On the last day of the 401 series you’ll bring everything together to plan and produce a menu with your classmates and invited guest, incorporating all the skills you’ve learned throughout the 16 weeks. In addition, you will also receive a certificate of completion for every series signed by the chef and our CEO and President.
