Instructor: Gary Hild
Location: The Culinary Center of Kansas City

Let’s learn soup and chili-making fundamentals - from stocks to seasoning to garnishing techniques, as we are guided through interesting plant-based recipes that are nutritious, simple to make and don't require a ton of complicated ingredients.

Tonight's expert culinary instructor, Chef Gary Hild, is dedicated to teaching students how to cook, eat and live better, and a firm believer that plant-based meals are nothing short of culinary medicine. 

He will concentrate on preparation and a wide variety of uses while showcasing healthy ingredients like sofrito, complete plant-based proteins, and luxurious mouth feel that comes from pureeing soup.  

You’ll create basic homemade stocks that will be used to make soups with plant-based proteins as you learn recipes like Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup, Tuscan-Style Bean and Vegetable Soup (that includes a lesson on the benefits of ‘mise en place’ and how to work ahead to ensure you have a healthy dinner on the table even on busy nights).

You'll also learn to make Quinoa and Black Bean Chili, a slow-cooker meal that you’ll love having in your recipe arsenal.

As a bonus, Chef Gary will show you how to prepare a fresh Fennel and Arugula Salad with a homemade Citrus Vinaigrette, and more.

No more store-bought ‘creamed of junk’ soup in your kitchen – pitch ‘em.  Chef will also cover how to use citrus juices, a variety of vinegars, and fresh herbs and spices to achieve incredibly flavored soups that are oh-so-good for you!
