For those that may not know, I have my Bachelor's degree in culinary arts business management. I've been professionally cooking in Charleston, SC for over 8 years, 6 of those years were spent in fine dining, 7 were spent catering events in and out of state, 2 were spent at a 5 star hotel & a year was spent in front of house.
Cooking is an essential life skill that can be learnt any stage in life. Whether you're just embarking on cooking for yourself or a young adult transforming into a budding chef, I'll teach you how to cook with confidence. The class is entirely hands on, so you develop and practice with guidance from me, an expert chef, and produce your own meals that you can share with your family and friends. Classes can be individual all the way up to a small group of 6 persons.
I'll show you which pots, pans and tools are essential in your kitchen, how to stock your kitchen pantry, and what spice blends you need to build your dishes up with love Along with properly outfitting your kitchen, you'll learn all about how to use a chef's knife safely and other simple ways to be a better cook today!
Once we've covered the basics, I'll guide you through many different cooking techniques that will improve every meal you make! Each cooking technique is also paired with a recipe collection cards so you can practice these techniques while making a delicious meal. Nearly every recipe used in this class is one of mine, so you can be sure they've been tried and tested!
Take this class and you'll be feeling like a home chef in no time! These in house cooking lessons are 6 weeks long and packed with different healthy dishes from different regions of the world. Each week includes approximately an hour of cooking (or a little more) and ends with sharing the meal prepared. During meal time the participants discuss key concepts of nutrition and meal planning.
