Cooking - the Fundamentals

$68

with Evan Landry, Mid-Coast School of Technology Adult Education

Calendar Jul 20, 2022 at 12 pm, runs for 1 week

You can prepare delicious meals at home! Learn the basic cooking techniques and methods, how to effectively read, shop, and prepare ingredients for recipes, basic stocks/sauces, efficient food cost methods, safety/equipment management, and more. Using French cooking fundamentals as the knowledge base, you will produce and prepare basic food components for food creations of your own. Expect to learn about and use kitchen equipment, cut your own mirepoix (carrots, celery, onion) and other ingredients (herbs, meats, etc), simmer a stock/sauce, explore the 5 mother sauces (bechamel, veloute, espagnole, hollandaise, and tomato), perform basic building block recipes (break down a chicken, blanch vegetables, and render fat.) By the end of Day 1, we will choose a dish based upon the prep work accomplished. On Day 2, students will prepare individual dishes from the work done the previous day.  Let your inner chef out and enjoy the creative processes and the leftovers you will bring home.

Cost of supplies is included in course fee. Students should bring containers on Day 2 to take leftovers home.

Certificate in Food, Nutrition, and Health

$96

with Ed2Go Instructor, MSAD#1 Adult & Community Education

Food and nutrition have a profound impact on our health and well-being, yet many of us are not aware of what foods to eat, which diets are healthy, and where our food originates. We eat toxic, irradiated, or genetically altered foods and we eat more than we need. How can we change our eating habits and become more conscious of what we eat, why we eat it, how it is prepared, and what consequences our food choices have on our health as well as the health of our planet? This certificate provides an overview of the role of food and nutrition choices on our bodies, our immune systems, our overall well-being, and the health of all sentient beings on an increasingly populated planet.

The outcome of this certificate is for the learner to describe a holistic overview of current food and nutrition issues and their impact on physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and planetary health.
