Class Description: 

This must-take fundamentals class will take your cooking skills to new heights. Once you know how to make stocks, you’ve opened the door to so many recipes that rely on them — and that includes (but is not limited to) basic broth, creamed and cold soups. After this informative evening, you’ll quite possibly never open a can of prepared soup again.

Chef Richard McPeake is an experienced culinary professional and will teach essential techniques as he shows you the fundamentals of making basic beef (brown) and chicken (white) stock – the base of many soups. Then he’ll show you how it’s used as he creates a few of his favorite soups including Chicken & Spaetzle (making “tiny” dumplings) Soup, Cream of Chicken ala Reine, Classic Cream of Tomato Basil (using homemade marinara sauce!!) and a fresh – even a chilled Gazpacho. 

We’ll explore the different seasonings and flavorings for stocks and soups and Chef will offer great suggestions for attractive, tasty garnishes. You’ll get to taste all these creations and leave with all the recipes that you’re sure to use over, and over, again.

NOTE:  Unless otherwise noted, each evening class fee includes one glass of beer/wine, with additional beverages available at a nominal cost.
