Cooking - the Fundamentals

$68

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

Calendar Nov 9, 2022 at 5:30 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.
