Learn to Cook • A Series of Five Classes for Spring 2017

Become a whiz in the kitchen with fast and easy recipes that will impress your family and friends! You will master knife skills and cooking techniques in every class and add my time-honored cooking tips to your repertoire. These classes will help make you a cooking genius.

Take all 5 classes or take individual classes based on your interests.

Class #1: Stocks, Sauces & Knife Skills • Sunday, March 19, 10 a.m.
Consider this class “Cooking 101.” It’s where you’ll start to become the master of your kitchen. These three cooking methods are the building blocks to flavoring your meats and other dishes — they’ll really give you the edge in cooking.

Class #2: Soups & Chili • Sunday, March 26, 10 a.m.
These dishes are essentials that everyone should know for his/her survival — or to feed a hungry crowd. (Plus, they’re healers for the common cold and hangovers.) Preparation is simple and variations are endless. Become famous among your friends for your delicious soups or 5-alarm chili!

Class #3: Marinades & Brining • Sunday, April 30, 10 a.m.
Learn how to flavor, moisturize, and tenderize ingredients before cooking to make them succulent and tasty. Although usually associated with meats, marinades are also used to “flavorize” fish, veggies, and even fruit!

Class #4: Sautéing & Pan Frying • Sunday, May 21, 10 a.m.
Learn the techniques for perfect sautéing and pan frying. The key is to use thinly sliced ingredients. It’s quick, easy cooking that will put a delicious dinner on the table in no time.

Class #5: Roasting & Baking • Sunday, June 4, 10 a.m.
An oven is an oven, no matter what you cook inside, right? Wrong. Here’s the difference: you “roast” meat and “bake” corn bread, cakes and pies. In this class you will learn to do both with great success.

Individual classes are $85 – or enjoy a $25 savings when you sign up for the series of 5 classes for $400. Cost includes lots of food, cooking instruction and tips, cooking in a commercial kitchen, and a recipe booklet for each class.
