Scottsdale's Sweet Basil Announces Start of 12 Week "Essence of Cooking" Series
So many of us feel like the Lone Ranger -we don't know how to cook and sometimes think we're the only ones who can't . Not all of us had a mom, dad or grandma at home to teach us. Sweet Basil's class is a comfortable opportunity to learn.
All a student needs to bring to class is a pen. Comfortable shoes are recommended. Each student will get to use a loaner-apron and receive hand-outs. Each class includes a meal of the foods prepared.
This 12-week culinary course is designed for those who want to learn about all facets of cooking to become good well rounded cooks at home. This series includes lectures; written materials; demonstrations of culinary terms; techniques & tools; ingredient selection; menu planning & presentation techniques. Hands-on lessons will be: Kitchen Basics, Terminology & Knife Skills; Sauces; Soups; Sautéing & Braising; Eggs; Grilling & Roasting; Fish & Shellfish; Potatoes, Pasta & Rice; Quick Breads & Yeast Breads; Hors d’oeuvres & First Courses; Baking & Desserts, & Graduation Dinner.
