Cooking Lab

Our Cooking Lab classes teach the basic science and techniques all cooks need to know. You will learn to understand the causes and effects of your actions in the kitchen. We examine various cooking methods and ingredients to discover parallels that will amaze you. Your view of cooking may well be transformed. These interactive demonstration classes focus on dialogue between the chef and student, creating an enriching experience loaded with information. The class will include some light hands-on participation from the students.

Learn the secrets of successful flavors combinations! Learn to make sense of your sense of taste. With stronger olfactory awareness, you can become a creative cook inspired by your own palate instead of following recipes to the letter. We'll teach you the art of tweaking the five basic tastes - Salty, Sweet, Bitter, Sour and Umami - and how to use herbs, spices, oils, vinegars and aromatic ingredients to create a rich tapestry of cuisine limited only by your imagination. 1-week cancellation policy.
