[Organizer's description:]Fundamentals Farmer's Market Tour - Fall focus edition
Are you interested in Culinary School, but don't have the time or money? Have you been cooking for years and just want something new and exciting? Are you a novice interested in getting in the kitchen for the first time? Then the Fundamentals classes are the ones for you!
These classes are for those who are serious about learning how to cook. We offer 20 different courses to choose from throughout the year that can be taken in any order (except Knife Skills 2, which must be taken after Knife Skills 1).
As always, we provide you with a relaxing and warm environment for learning, and have the best instructors who are passionate about teaching. For those who complete all 20 courses, we will give both a Certificate of Completion in the Culinary Arts as well as a Chef Jacket embroidered with your name on it. This Certificate is valid to prove your completion and can be used to gain employment, should you choose to follow a career in Food.
We're so confident you'll learn more than in any other class offered by the competition that we guarantee it or your next class is on us!
In this class we will take you on a guided tour to the farmers market across the street, Canino's which is the oldest farmer's market in Houston starting in the '50s. We will instruct you on what to buy, how to pick it, and when it is in season. We will focus on the produce and items that are at their peak for this time of year. We will also make a stop at the Houston Dairy Maids to pick out some great cheeses to go with our dishes.
In the class after the tour, you will learn how to make:
an appetizer of fresh made guacamole and home fried tortilla chips
a seasonal risotto featuring the best vegetables or fruits we find at the market and finished with delectable Dairy Maid cheeses
a fresh and hearty soup featuring vegetables, and/or squashes, from the market
a dessert of a seasonal fruit cobbler using the ripest fruits we can find at the market.
***This class is approximately 3.5 to 4 hours long***
