Our goals for this four morning, beginner series is to build your skills and confidence, as well as train 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: Beginner cooks, or those who have been cooking for years and want to improve their skills.
