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.

Two hipsters teach you the art behind cooking. Sit back and relax into the mindful life of these two chilled chefs.
Really liked this but I would have liked more of the sections that focussed on skills, such as the knife skills section! More technical knowledge please! But for beginners this is perfect.
the guys' low - key approach relieves anxiety- creates a fun atmosphere- and promotes a "can do this" mentality... they should do more videos!
