Learn how to slow cook your way to vegetarian comfort food magic, using what you have and very little of your time. Braising is one of the most useful techniques you can master to create flavorful, hearty and balanced dishes to fill you up on weekday nights, meal prep in advance or make ahead the main course of a dinner party.
This class will cover the basics of vegetarian braising from choosing plant-based proteins, building and complementing flavors, searing, deglazing, simmering to tender perfection, and utilizing cooking vessels.
Our menu includes:
Brothy White Beans & Caramelized Fennel over Garlic Sourdough
Miso & Ginger Braised Tofu [or Cod] with Shiitake and Baby Bok Choy
All ages welcome and encouraged.
