OUAB in the Kitchen: Principles and Techniques of Cooking


Time: Wednesday, March 06, 2013 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: Ohio Union - Instructional Kitchen

Want to learn the difference between braising and roasting? Looking to improve your knife skills? Attend the series of three technique classes during spring semester. Rather than focusing on cooking a complete meal around a specific theme, these classes will include individualized instruction on mastering various cooking techniques and each class will build on the previous.


The sessions will be approximately 30 minutes of chef demo/lecture, with 60-75 minutes of hands on application. The Sessions will be taught from a Classical perspective and the course will be limited to 24 participants to allow hands on instruction as needed. Students must commit to participation in all three classes. As usual, there will be plenty of food to eat and discuss.

Principles-Knife Skills, Mise en Place, Stocks Soups and Sauces, Poultry

Techniques- Pan Fry, and Grill, and Roas
