Sensational Senses, A Taste Bud Adventure!

Monday to Friday, 7/9-13 from 2:30-5:30

Ages: Nine to highschool senior. Cooking together creates community!  

Salty, Sweet, Sour, Bitter and Umami. U-who? In this week long class, we’ll explore where taste comes from and learn how to taste our way through the world of cooking. As we cook each day, we’ll taste, adjust, cook a bit more, and taste again. This will instill an intuitive sense of what tastes right and good. We’ll also test our tasting skills by doing comparisons between scratch-cooked foods and a few pre-packaged foods.

Each Day will focus on:

  • Sour & Bitter: why bitter is better and tangy is tasty

  • Salty: trusting our tongue

  • Umami: layering flavor and adding depth

  • Sweet: the many flavors of sweet and where to find them

Along the way, we’ll cover:

  • Kitchen safety (while we use blow torches & big knives)

  • Loads of cooking technique

  • Cooking science

  • Prepping, preparing & platting

  • And much more
