Cooking Techniques Shellfish is an in-depth study of how to cook these items without the need for recipes.  Seafood is the ultimate fast food that is healthy.  Cooking Techniques classes focus on specific cuts of meat or vegetables, teaching the most-used techniques of the classically trained chef. We focus on braising, stewing, poaching, steaming, sweating, frying, pan frying, sauteeing/browning, roasting, grilling, and broiling. Each class will focus on proper cooking and food temperatures. You will learn about how the animals are raised, best practices for sustainability, how to choose the right cuts, farming and fishing practices, and more.

We're so confident you'll learn more than in any other class offered by the competition that we guarantee it or your next class is on us!
