The key to great cooking boils down to solid technique and great ingredients. Join us for this intensive journey through the basics -- the end result is greater kitchen confidence and less reliance on recipes! Each class will feature a full arsenal of dishes utilizing the techniques learned -- we will work with the very best cuts of meat, seafood, and produce from local purveyors. Students will work in pairs and prepare everything on the evening's menu providing for a generous amount of practice. Students will then sit down to enjoy the fruits of their labor throughout each class. This is, by far, our most intensive class, but also our most fun! And best of all, no experience is required! This class meets on consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6-10pm, Jan. 15-Feb. 12. Full participation. Register online 48 hours in advance at www.annarborcooks.com
