About This Class

e06ac547

This is a course in the basic building blocks of cooking geared towards beginner-intermediate home cooks.  We want to teach you the techinques and skills necessary to cook good, healthy, seasonal food without following exact recipes. You will learn how to identify products and determine their quality, where to find the best ingredients, what cookware you should have & what staple pantry items you should keep stocked.  You will learn some of the most important basic cooking techniques and how to do them, and the most important ways to build flavor. Lastly, you will learn how to use those techniques to create healthy, seasonal & flavorful dishes like pan-roasted chicken breast with fingerlings and kale, and a radish and grains salad with pea shoots and celery root.

Thanks for the great class! One thing that should be added to the episode on cooking chicken is the importance of washing chicken thoroughly before cooking. Many food safety studies have confirmed that chicken is the single most contaminated food that we buy in our markets. It has to do with the way chicken is processed. A thorough washing and drying, followed by the heat from cooking should kill most of the bacteria.
This dish they make is so mouthwateringly good.
Liked the skills that were taught in the class. It looks like a wonderful meal. Can't wait to try out what I learned.
