It’s the time of year when the big pot at the back of the cabinet beckons us to pull it out and fill it with hearty soups and stews. The attraction of a good bowl of hot soup or stew on a cold day is obvious and, like cooking anything else, making a soup or stew is a great way to spend a winter afternoon. Not to mention, it makes your home smell so homey when simmering on the stove.
Tonight, experienced culinary instructor, Lauren Lane, is going to share some informative tips and tricks of making tasty and satisfying soups and stews. We’ll run the gamut from broth-based soups to hearty beefy stews as Lauren creates some of her families favorite winter warmers like classic French Onion Soup (Yum!), a hearty Italian Beef Stew (to learn simple, robust and warm stew techniques) that’s destined to become one of your family’s favorite go-to cold weather meals, and an authentic Italian Wedding Soup (if you’ve never experienced this soup, you’re in for a real treat.) She will also teach you to prepare a Light & Creamy Butternut Cumin Soup for those days when you’re not in the mood for a heavy meal.
You’ll get a little cooking time with Lauren as you learn how to recreate these gems step by step and, along the way, garner basic cooking skills and culinary knowledge on how to make a stock as a soup base, how to prepare and use a roux to add dimension, the benefits of pureeing, all about broths and thickening agents and so much more!
And, of course … we’ll sample everything! A great class for the heart of colder month, so, what are you waiting for – sign up today!
