NOTE: This class was moved from Wed 7/8.

We are offering a very limited number of students (12 to be exact) the ability to sit right in our kitchens as Chef Jill teaches the online version of this special class.  Yup.  You’ll interact with Chef in an intimate kitchen setting but we know why you’re really here…the smells, the wine, the “behind the scenes” experience and oh yes…the TASTES!   That’s what we thought. 

Here’s the class description: 

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.  Learning how to use 'em is 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 tonight’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 learn about many varieties of herbs and spices; find out how to toast and grind them; learn about 'fresh vs. dried'; how to experiment with seasoning blends (our best friends in a busy kitchen); learn how to make your own spice blends (it’s easier than you think!); understand what spices and herbs complement each other; and obtain 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 to show you how it’s done. 

Bring your questions, ‘cause this is going to be one heck of a must-take class for the novice or the seasoned (Ha Ha!) cook! It will change the way you cook. Promise.

NOTE: For Onsite Classes, when you arrive, please check in with our Class Assistant who will give you information as to where you will be seated.  We will be arranging our classrooms to allow for social distancing. In order to comply with governmental orders and for the protection of our guests and staff, we ask that you wear a mask when here at The Culinary Center of Kansas City. If you are planning to sit next to someone else attending the class, we would suggest arriving at least 20 minutes prior to the start time of the class so that we can address that request.  Both students would need to be comfortable with the request to be seated together. Thank you!
