Learn to Cook: The Basics
What You Will Learn
Anyone can cook--the ability to cook "from scratch" is not only extremely rewarding but a talent that everyone can learn. In this class, we'll teach you the basics--how to hold and properly use a chef's knife, to make your own vinaigrette (no more bottled salad dressings), a simple sautéed chicken dish that works with any meat, and a fruit compote that will dress up even store-bought ice cream. You'll soon see that there is nothing magical about cooking, just good basic techniques, fresh ingredients, and a little practice.
