Cooking Basics for Busy People
This variant is currently sold out
A series of three classes to get you up and running eating healthy, delicious food that you can make yourself. It's really all about the shopping and some very basic planning. You'll learn how to plan your grocery shopping, how to stock your pantry, and how to come up with something pretty simple and delicious when you just don't have the time. Each class will use recipes to focus on different techniques and skills that make your life easier. Some recipes will be demonstrated and some will be hands-on, so come ready to participate. And each class will end with us feasting on our creations and toasting our new knowledge and skills. Everyone goes home with all the recipes, as well as tips and tricks.
Saturdays, 4-7 p.m. Join one, two or all three classes!
Sat., 4/16 - Roasting a chicken and using the whole bird. The focus in this class will be menu planning and how to shop for the week. We'll roast a whole chicken, make an easy pan sauce, and then a couple side dishes to go with it. The bonus is making a chicken stock with tips on freezing and using leftovers.
Sat., 4/30 - Veggies, Grains and Legumes. Three dishes that will sharpen your knife skills and expand your easy dinner repertoire. We'll make a lush White Bean and Greens Soup, a bright Red Lentil and Veggie saute and a quick Quinoa Nut main dish salad. These recipes are vegetarian staples that omnivores love too.
Sat., 5/7 - Pasta Bolognese. A basic meat sauce that makes the most of what's in your fridge. You can use this sauce a bunch of different ways, and it freezes great. And we'll also make some homemade pasta! Not as intimidating as you might think.
Maximum class size is 8. We'll provide aprons and all the needed materials.
Ages 15 and over.
