This class is part of our Culinary Certificate program.  It is open to everyone to attend.  If you would like more information about our Certificate program, please click here.

Cooking Techniques Veggies, Herbs, & Spices is an in-depth study of how to cook these items without the need for recipes.  Cooking Techniques classes focus on specific cuts of meat or vegetables, teaching the most-used techniques of the classically trained chef. We focus on braising, stewing, poaching, steaming, sweating, frying, pan frying, sauteeing/browning, roasting, grilling, and broiling. Each class will focus on proper cooking and food temperatures. You will learn about how the animals are raised, best practices for sustainability, how to choose the right cuts, farming and fishing practices, and more.  We're so confident you'll learn more than in any other class offered by the competition that we guarantee it or your next class is on us! 

All of the classic cooking techniques can be applied so well to vegetables!  Understanding the difference between roasting veggies at 375 F vs. 450 F can be all the difference in flavor and texture.  Also, our an understanding of the right herbs and spices can take us on a culinary adventure throughout the world right from our own kitchen.
