“How to Boil Water: Boot Camp for Beginners” Covers Extreme Basics

(Southborough MA) – Culinary Underground School for Home Cooks is pleased to offer brand new, two-day intensive cooking classes for adults at the school’s new location in Southborough MA, Saturday and Sunday, July 16 – 17, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day; the cost is $250.00.

“In this two-day intensive, culinary newbies will learn the absolute basics,” confirmed Founder and Director Chef Lori Leinbach. “ By basics we really mean it: how to stock the pantry, how to plan meals, how to shop the grocery store, how to use knives to chop, slice, and dice; how to make soup, easy sauces, simple vinaigrettes. We have pared it

all down so that you can use one skillet, one saucepan, and one baking dish to make simple, healthy meals in very little time. You will come out of boot camp with a small repertoire of dishes under your belt. You’ll be confident, and ready to cook.”

The two-day intensive will be taught by Culinary Underground Founder and Director Chef Lori Leinbach. Chef Lori is a former grade school teacher and a graduate of the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts. For ten years, she operated Custom Cuisine, a personal chef service for families and individuals in Boston and the MetroWest area. Lori teaches continuing education classes locally, as well as private cooking classes designed for individuals and small groups. Lori is a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, American

Who should sign up for the boot camp?

About Culinary Underground School for Home Cooks (CU)

Culinary Underground School for Home Cooks is committed to furthering the art and craft of home cooking through engaging and educational hands-on and demonstrations classes. Using the best seasonal ingredients, mastering techniques, minimizing prep, and maximizing flavor are the focus of our classes. We believe that good eating and breaking bread with others are two of life’s greatest pleasures, and are at the heart of everyday cooking for family and friends. We share with our students a growing concern of what is in our food and where it comes from. To that end, we support small, local, organic farms and dairies, seek out area restaurants whose chefs cook locally, and invite those chefs, farmers, and purveyors into the classroom to share their knowledge and ideas with our students. Located at 21 Turnpike Road/Route 9, Suite E, Southborough MA 01772, the school was founded in 2004 by Chef/Director Lori Leinbach, an experienced educator and personal chef. The staff of four culinary experts teaches children and adults in small classes of 8-12 persons, Monday through Friday, daytime and evenings; special classes and events are also held on weekends. CU students of all levels and interests come from as far as CT, NH, and RI, as well as from Central and MetroWest Massachusetts. Additionally, great tools students use in class can be
purchased at the new, on-site Kitchen Corner store. To register, purchase gift certificates, or learn more about Culinary Underground School for Home Cooks, visit www.culinaryunderground.com or call 508 904 6589.
