Back to Basics

Duration: 3 hoursType: In-PersonPrice: $135

Food always tastes better when you make it yourself, and in this class for new and curious cooks, Renée Beaudoin will teach you how to create classic dishes, making every ingredient from scratch. You’ll learn how to roast like a pro as you make crispy skin chicken with slow-roasted onions and sourdough that you’ll slather with homemade butter infused with roasted garlic and thyme. You’ll master the loaded potato with smashed sweet potatoes with black pepper crème fraîche, thick cut bacon, and chives, and you’ll make homemade dijon-style mustard that you’ll turn into a classic tarragon vinaigrette for a winter greens salad. You’ll finish the meal by learning some baking fundamentals as you whip up a grapefruit pound cake with hibiscus pink-peppercorn glaze.
