Starting with organic soybeans, you’ll prepare homemade tofu of a quality, texture, and nutty taste that is in every way superior to store-bought. Far from “tasteless,” really fresh tofu is very delicate and delicious. Peter will guide you through making the tofu; then you’ll learn how to cook creatively with it and discover its wonderful possibilities.

Dishes We'll Cover:

  • Baked Tofu in Lemon, White Wine and Butter Sauce
  • Asian Noodles in Spicy Dashi with Fresh Tofu
  • Spicy Scrambled Tofu Crostini
  • Lemon Tofu Cheesecake

Attended: Homemade Perfect Pizzas Plus

Loved the cooking part so much and loved the teacher. I just thought the instructions were a little long at the beginning and we could have done more cooking and prep while our instructor spoke. I loved the side salads and wine pairings as well and loved that that part was unlimited. Definitely Recommend it though!

Attended: Oh, Those Last Stubborn Pounds...

This class is packed with a lot of good information and reinforces the "fact" that sugar is the culprit of weight gain and reducing its intake is key. The instructor makes good recommendations on foods that aid in weight reduction/maintenance, but it is very macrobiotic oriented, which is not for everyone (like myself) and very limiting. The class should have been titled "Macrobiotics".

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.
