MASTER THE BASICS: Cooking fundamentals SERIES with Chef Frank Schatz of the Culinary Cartel: WEEK FOUR

Whether you’re a beginner in the kitchen looking to progress beyond boiling water or an advanced home cook wanting to take your cooking to the next level, the 6-week cooking basics series is just right for you.

In this cooking class series, you’ll go beyond merely following recipes to explore the cooking techniques that are the foundations for all recipes. Understanding what makes a recipe work rather than just how to follow it blindly will help you pull off dishes to perfection every time! Chef Frank will help you learn to be confident in the kitchen and teach you how to improvise using ingredients you find in your kitchen. You’ll learn the basic science and proper cooking methods that will make all cooking a breeze, from quick weeknight family meals to entertaining for a crowd! When we are finished cooking each week, we'll sit down together to enjoy the meal we've just prepared.

Take the whole course and pay for only 5 of the 6! Or come along to individual classes.


Chef Frank will demystify those French sauces you know and love (and are a little afraid of making!).  Think creamy sauces such as béchamel, hollandaise and velvety demi-glace that makes fantastic gravy. Say goodbye to lumpy, soupy and tasteless sauces forever.
