The Culinary Basics Cooking Series is designed for the novice cook with little or no culinary experience. Starting with essential knife skills, Chef Eric will help you learn to be comfortable and confident in the kitchen. Using easy-to-prepare recipes and basic cooking techniques, you’ll learn about the importance of advance preparation to save you time and reduce stress in the kitchen. When possible, we use ingredients that can be purchased ready-to-cook to make things easier for you.
