Cooking Essentials: “The Bases”: Where to Start Class



Mirepoix. Sofrito. Holy Trinity. Battuto. Supengrün. Sound fancy? They really are not.

These are the humble beginnings of many of the world’s greatest dishes. Combinations of un-fancy vegetables that create the foundation and then practically disappear into a dish.

They give it depth. And character. And flavor. They say you can have a chicken soup without chicken, but you can’t have one without a mirepoix. Sometimes cooking really is just starting. Chopping some onions. Chopping some garlic. Figuring out where you want to go.

In this class we will give you the tools to get you started!
