The goals for this four evening beginner series is to build your skills and confidence, as well as training your taste buds. At the completion of the Beginner series, you will be ready to put together simple meals for yourself and family from basic pantry items.

Students will learn the basics of knife skills, simple soups and stocks, and sauces; easy vegetable preparations; how to cook eggs; and the methods for cooking familiar cuts of beef, pork, chicken, and fish. We will cover building a pantry of ingredients and selecting a small battery of equipment, as well as tips for menu planning, nesting tasks, shopping the grocery store, and sources for ingredients.

Who should take it: Individuals who can cook as long as they have a recipe in front of them, or for those who have been cooking for years but have never had formal training and lack confidence about what they’re doing in the kitchen.

Week 1: January 10: Basic Knifes Skills; Easy Vegetable Prep; All About Eggs
Week 2: January 17:  Soups, Stocks, and Simple Sauces
Week 3: January 24: Moist Heat Cooking Methods;
Week 4: January 31: Dry Heat Cooking Method

Classes are held on consecutive Wednesdays. Students receive a certificate of completion at the end of the session.

A light snack prepared by our staff and non-alcoholic beverages provided – so you can survive!

Basic cooking knowledge is solid grounding for a self-sufficient life, so we offer the junior version of our adult beginner’s series for budding chefs for students 10-12 years of age.

Students cover everything from basic knife skills to the techniques for preparing simple, real food. It’s not just about the recipes: this is about problem-solving, time management, everyday arithmetic, and applied creativity.

Each week, students will prepare a three-course meal that can be prepared with adult supervision in the kitchen; one class is devoted to after-school snacks.

Classes meet every Monday afternoon from 4:30-6:30 PM beginning January 22. Students receive a packet of recipes at the end of the four-week capsule.
