Cooking Basics with Chef Liz Gallery | Marinates, Vinaigrettes and Seasonings

By Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm (other events)

Sunday, April 7 2019 10:00 AM 2:00 PM

Join Chef Liz Gallery for a series of cooking classes that explore the basic skills for kitchen success. Whether you're a beginner or simply looking to expand your culinary repertoire, Chef Gallery will teach you essential kitchen skills.

By simply seasoning food you can accentuate subtle flavors, evoke a certain time and place, or rescue a dish that would be otherwise tasteless. Marinates can preserve foods, add amazing flavor and tenderize. Homemade vinaigrettes are fresh, healthier options to their store-bought alternatives that are full of preservatives. Seasonings such as masala warm the digestive system and heal our bodies. Leave with new skills that will help you enhance home-cooked meals with simple seasoning.

This class is one in a three-part series:

  • Classic knife skills, cuts and chops | February 17
  • Sauces from around the world | March 17
  • Marinates, vinaigrettes and seasonings | April 7


A chef's knife is required for the class. Lunch and tea will be included.
