I created a class through the PRL and Stanford Dining. It’s called Pleasuring Your Palate. It starts tomorrow night and I’m so excited to be teaching it.
Pleasuring Your Palate
This workshop will enable you to feel comfortable creating well-designed, cohesive and delicious meals from seasonal healthy ingredients. You will learn skills based on the culinary tradition of staging, where an aspiring cook learns from the ground up: for example, keeping an organized and stocked kitchen, cleaning greens and preparing cold dishes, and sautéing, frying and roasting. Together, we will transform your perceptions of food from a source of fuel to an exciting design challenge. You will create your own menus based on seasonality and local availability, and will use human centered design principles to cater to specific needs and experiences. In addition to teaching applicable skills that you will use every day, this class will offer you a new medium to express your creativity.
