In Garnish Like a Pro, you’ll understand and apply the 6 rules of mouth watering garnishing. First, we will whip up a scratch-made creamy vegetable based soup, like asparagus, fresh pea, broccoli or carrot. Your choice. Then, learn to prepare an array of potential garnishes for the soup, including toasted nuts and seeds, spice oils, pistou, fresh herbs, crackers and croutons. Assemble your soup using 3 different plating styles. You’ll build an arsenal of tools, such as knife skills, flavor and texture pairings, sauce creation and artistic plating, so that you can professionally garnish everything you serve up, from tacos to eggs to dessert.
In this class, you will make:
Cream of Asparagus, Carrot, Fresh Pea or Broccoli Soup (plant-based, dairy free, and gluten free & your choice)
Toasted Nuts & Seeds
This is a virtual hands-on class. There is some prep required for this class. You’ll receive a detailed ingredients, materials and prep list at least 1 week before class. No special tools or equipment required, but a blender or food processor is highly recommended. Recordings are made available after class.
