Learn how to slow cook your way to comfort food magic, using what you have and very little of your time. Braising is one of the most important techniques you can master to create flavorful, hearty and balanced dishes to fill you up on weekday nights or prep ahead for the main course of a dinner party.
This class will cover the basics of braising from choosing proteins, building and pairing flavors, searing, deglazing, simmering to tender perfection, and utilizing cooking vessels.
Our menu includes:
Lamb Stew: Cinnamon, Star Anise, Preserved Lemon, Apricot, Pistachio
Tuscan Chicken: White Beans, Leeks, Rosemary, Wine, Root Vegetables
Steamed Cous Cous
Broccoli Rabe with Preserved Lemon
All ages welcome and encouraged.
