With the popularity of TV chefs Emeril Lagasse, Alton Brown, and the Food Network’s series Iron Chef, a LIFE member suggested we find a speaker who is an expert in the kitchen. Well, here you go.
This workshop will cover the basics of cooking, from knife skills to a variety of cooking methods, with emphasis on how they can be applied in your own kitchen. We will learn how to add flavor to dishes by using herbs and spices. Come with your questions about what is happening with what you are preparing at home, or dishes you’d like to prepare. Chef Knapp and his culinary students will demonstrate their skills by preparing tasty tidbits on which to nibble.
