The Science of Cooking Well

This class will be taught by Chef Jeremy.  What causes mashed potatoes to become gluey and heavy instead of creamy and light? Why do roasts overcook? For something so elemental to our daily lives, cooking can get complicated once science takes over. The problem is that good recipes can only take you so far. Successful cooks benefits from the cook developing intuition and a sixth “cooking” sense in the kitchen. The truth is, great cooks don’t have culinary ESP, they simply understand the fundamental science behind why foods act the way they do, and you can to. This class is gluten free with hands on opportunities as desired. On the menu:

  • Classic Cobb Salad with Emulsified Sherry Vinaigrette
  • Braised Oxtail Risotto
  • Pan Seared Scallop with Beurre Blanc
  • Espresso Crème Brulee with Macerated Berries
