Salt Lake Culinary Education
What does it mean to be a better cook? Imagine being able to look in your refrigerator and pantry and feel inspired to make a meal just based on what you already have. Think about having the culinary confidence to prepare a dish without clinging to a recipe. Once you understand how ingredients and techniques work, you can begin to improvise.
We believe that understanding basic fundamental cooking techniques along with how ingredients react with one another is how you really start cooking. This series is comprised of six hands-on cooking sessions to teach you fundamental cooking techniques and explain the principles behind them. Get ready to have fun, get creative, and to be a better cook!
