Herbs & Spices 101: How to Season Foods Like a Pro with Chef Jill Garcia Schmidt
OK, show of hands... how many of you still have the same tins/jars of herbs and spices given to you as a wedding gift? You know who you are. It’s not rocket science, and it’s not something practiced by learned alchemists.
Let’s join Chef and Lead Culinary Instructor Jill Garcia Schmidt as she leads you through this informative class and demystifies the fragrant world of herbs and spices. Chef Jill has a down-to-earth teaching style with lots of humor sprinkled in. You’ll learn a lot from this engaging professional, and she makes sure you have loads of fun at the same time!
Chef will cover a lot of ground in today's demonstration class as she explores seasoning basics like how to determine which spices and herbs work well with certain meats or vegetables… and why!
You’ll also taste and smell many varieties of herbs and spices; find out how to toast and grind them, learn about 'fresh vs. dried', experiment with seasoning blends (our best friends in a busy kitchen), how to make your own spice blends (it’s easier than you think!), understand what spices and herbs complement each other, and tips on how to apply them to foods to create incredibly tasty dishes.
Then, Chef Jill will show off her mad cooking skills as she whips up a few simple dishes for tasting to show you how it’s done.
Bring your questions, ‘cause this is going to be one heck of an informative afternoon and a must-take class for the novice or the seasoned (Ha Ha!) cook! It will change the way you cook. Promise.
