We’re smack dab in the middle of that time of year when the big pot at the back of the cabinet beckons us to pull it out and fill it with hearty, comforting soups and stews. The attraction of a good bowl of hot soup or stew on a cold day is obvious and, like cooking anything else, making a soup or stew is a great way to spend a winter afternoon. Not to mention, it makes your home smell so homey when simmering on the stove.  

Tonight, Chef & Lead Instructor Jill Garcia Schmidt is going to share some informative tips and tricks for making tasty and satisfying soups and stews. She’s a whiz in the kitchen and has a fun, easy-to-understand teaching style. Plus she’s tons of fun! 

You’ll sit back and relax as you watch Chef Jill run the gamut from broth-based soups to hearty stews while she creates some of her family’s favorite winter warmers like classic French Onion, a savory Beef Stew (made in the Insta-Pot!), savory Chicken Tortilla Soup and more! Yes sirree, these gems are destined to become your new go-to favorites, too.  

She’ll teach you step by step how to make them and, along the way, Chef will teach a stock as a soup base, how to prepare and use a roux to add dimension, the benefits of pureeing, all about broths and thickening agents, and so much more!  And of course … you’ll take home all of the recipes and we’ll sample everything learned in class too!

So what are you waiting for – sign up today!
