This 12-week program is like culinary school for the home cook, covering all of the fundamental cooking techniques needed to cook fearlessly, without depending on step-by-step recipes. Students will work hands-on with a partner, building basic skills, and adding to their competencies week by week.
4/19/19 SERIES: Class will not be held 5/31, 6/28, or 7/5
Please let us know of any dietary restrictions we should be aware of before the first day of class so we can best accommodate your needs.
