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 making comparisons between scratch-cooked foods and a few pre-packaged foods.

Parents, my kids camps are taught at the same level as my adult classes. Your kids will be making dinner after this week. And, as usual, my focus will be on sourcing healthy ingredients and why cooking from scratch is always the healthiest choice!

Topics covered:

  • Cuisines of the world

  • Entrées, sides and salads

  • Discovering & utilizing the five tastes: salty, sweet, bitter, sour, and umami

Along the way, we’ll address:

  • Kitchen safety

  • Loads of cooking technique

  • The science of cooking

  • Prepping, preparing & plating

  • And much more!

Classes are non-refundable but feel free to send someone in your place if you are unable to attend.
