Whether you've been cooking your whole life and need to brush up on the basics, or you're just getting to know your way around the kitchen, these helpful tips and techniques will help your everyday cooking. We will learn about the concepts of ‘carry-over cooking’ (never overcook meat again), why resting meat maximizes juiciness, the truth about marinades (they do not tenderize a tough cut of meat) the importance of salt in many ways (brining, marinades). Learn how to temper eggs (crème brûlée), a ‘panade’ keeps ground meat tender (meatballs) Perfect Breading (3-step process) sautéing meats, and how to Flambé with alcohol (Bananas Foster). You will sample many dishes in class.
