Modernist Cuisine Workshops
Molecular gastronomy. Sous vide. Foams. Spherification. These are some of the most modern cooking methods, which you may have read about online or seen used in television shows like Top Chef. In this hands-on workshop you’ll get to try out these techniques for yourself and taste the results!
Eating our Values
We want our food choices to reflect our values. Some of us try to buy food grown and raised locally, others try to buy organic. Which tastes better? Which is better for the environment? Which is healthier? Which is more likely to pay a fair wage to the farmers? The answers aren’t always obvious.
In this fun and delicious workshop, you’ll examine how your life experiences and values inform your food choices. Using comparative tastings, activities, and discussions, we’ll explore the different things we think about when making shopping and eating decisions.
Homemade truffles are surprisingly easy to make, once you learn a few key tricks of the trade. Attendees will:
- learn to make ganache (the creamy center of a truffle)
- learn to form truffle centers
- learn to temper chocolate
- practice dipping and decorating centers I’ve prepared in advance
- take home at least 12 finished truffles
This advanced class is best for those who already have some experience with basic truffles. I’ll teach you to create the beautiful colors and effects. Individual and group lessons are available, contact me for more information.
