These are the classes on which our recreational program’s reputation was built. More than 20,000 students have taken this series in New York City. Once you master essential cooking techniques, you possess the culinary grounding to cook both classical cuisines and the latest cooking styles. These full-participation classes teach fundamental skills, not recipes. Instead of narrowly focusing on a roast duckling recipe, for example, you ’ll master roasting techniques that can be applied to foods from fish, to fruit. You’ll learn all the important cooking methods, from simple grilling to mousse making. As you advance through the series, you’ll gradually come to understand each cooking concept. Each class culminates with a student-prepared meal. This course consists of five 4 -hour classes.
