We're highlighting the top ten methods and techniques in a new and exciting culinary experience designed to jump start your culinary journey. Our experienced chef will teach you the fundamentals of how to confidently make better decisions in the kitchen, cook delicious meals by opening your taste buds, and explore the basic science and techniques all cooks should know.
You'll spend time honing your knife skills, discovering how the five basic tastes-Salty, Sweet, Bitter, Sour and Umami-play such an important role in being a successful cook, understanding proper cooking techniques for specific cuts of meat, and preparing classical sauces. After completing this building block class, your newfound knowledge will give your skills in the kitchen a huge boost in the right direction, allowing you to be more inspired by your own palate. Your view of cooking may even be transformed!
