Simple Cooking

Description Registration

Section 1. Basics

Cooking is complicated. There seem to be a thousand different pans to choose from and recipe terms may as well be in Latin. As scary as it sounds a couple hours can easily help you decode some of these mysteries as you dip your toe in the shallow end of cooking. Practice knife techniques, learn different cuts, recipe terms, and equipment selection.

Section 2. Breakfast

It’s the most important meal of the day and it’s also one of the tastiest. Learn how to cook eggs; over easy, over medium, poached, scrambled, and in a basket. Supplement your breakfast with easy side dishes like hash browns, French toast, and pancakes.

Section 3. Lunchtime

Lunch is often an overlooked meal usually consisting of fast food or microwaved products, but it can be so much more fulfilling. This section will provide instruction for simple and delicious homemade entrees. Macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches, and tomato soup are the special for today.

Section 4. Fried Chicken

Why buy a family bucket at a franchise chicken place when you can make it fresh at a fraction of the price! Homemade fried chicken can be an intimidating foe, but a little guided practice will ease your fears and satisfy you with a comfort food classic. Add mashed potatoes and country gravy and you will probably need a nap before you drive home.

Section 5. Cheesecake

Nothing says simple like few ingredients and easy preparation. Cheesecake is a simple and extravagant way to sate your “sugar lust.” Learn to put together a traditional New York style cheesecake. While your mouthwatering creation is baking you will discover various toppings and garnishes to elevate your dessert from basic to exquisite. (Spring form pan is recommended.)
