We are so excited to be offering our Fine Art of Cooking Series again in January! Chef Shawn Bucher will be sharing with us some of his favorite techniques to accomplish EVERYTHING in the kitchen.
These classes are for all skill levels-anyone who is looking to learn “the correct way” of cooking. In these classes you will find that Shawn focuses more on teaching you the necessary ways to accomplish the tasks rather than teaching you a specific recipe.
In each class, Chef Shawn will take the first part of class to thoroughly explain, teach, and demonstrate the class subject. He then lets all the students loose in their OWN work stations, working on their own recipes so that each student is able to grasp the material at hand. Lots of discussions and hands-on learning is done in these classes, and of course everyone leaves with a new understanding, as well as, a full belly!
Each class can be purchased as an individual class or as the series. Those buying the series will have a per class discount applied, as well as, Chef Shawn’s cookbook and DVD will be given to those signing up for the whole series. Trust us, you will want to take the whole series!
