Starting with organic soybeans, you’ll learn how to prepare homemade tofu of a quality, texture, and nutty taste that is in every way superior to store-bought. You’ll learn how to cook creatively with it and discover its wonderful possibilities and you'll even learn how to use tofu as an egg replacer!

Attended: Bold Southwest Vegetarian Entrees

I learned a lot during this class, but I wish it had been more pleasant. There were many people working there to help teach the class, which was nice. You did not need to scramble quite so much to find everything you needed. The ingredients were amazing as well. Unfortunately, at one point someone working there came over telling me the draining aubergines had to go in the oven now and we had to put them on the oven-trays, which we proceeded to do. I assumed they knew what they were doing and was then told off by the instructor for not patting dry, salting and adding oil to the aubergines before adding them to the trays. I guess I should have assumed the people working there didn't know what they were doing. I don't think I would take a class here again. I don't like being shouted at (seemed to happen a lot). I am not your sous-chef. Overall, this class could benefit from reducing the number of items that are cooked. This would make it less stressful for everyone.

Attended: Basics 2: Knife Skills

Good course, got what I hoped for in terms of learning. The video screen portion was not very effective for seeing exactly what was being demonstrated, and it was not generally helpful. Should be bigger, I think. The instructor was clear and amiable.
