Cooking Made Easy Workshop!

January 26, 2019 12-3:30 p.m.

In this class, Cooking Made Easy, Chef Terrance will teach you how to cook grains by "other names." When we think of grains, we often think rice, but Chef will introduce you two heirloom or locally grown whole grains and discuss how to use them as both featured and supporting dishes. He will teach you the importance of cooking grains in quality water/stock and discuss the value of adding herbs and fats/oils to cooked grains. Chef will introduce you the methods of properly steaming, searing, and sautéing veggies and will help you build confidence in knife usage by cutting veggies into uniform shapes. He will demonstrate and replicate how to properly steam, sear, and sauté veggies for maximum vitamin and nutrient retention/absorption. You will learn how to make a vinaigrette and/or sauce to enhance the cooked veggies.  To cook alongside this talented Chef may be the turning point in your health.  Join our health revolution and do something this weekend that may be a FIRST for you!
