Now you can learn all you need to know to make your own creative fillings and the secrets to a great dough. You’ll cover all of these important areas: Fillings–what is good in a pierogi? Are your fillings the right consistency? Will fillings leak out of the pierogi? Dough–is dough soft yet elastic? Rolling dough–how to use a dough roller or rolling pin to get dough thin but not too thin. Filling pierogies–how to keep the filling inside and how to pinch them. Autumn will also cover how to combat such problems as pierogies that explode in the pot or stick to the bottom. She’ll also show you how to sauté and will describe how to steam, bake, deep fry and boil pierogies. BRING: a container to take home any pierogies you do not eat.

The Science of Eggs:

Tuesday, April 28

Eggs are considered to be the perfect food and at the same time one of the most difficult foods to cook. Over cook them and they can be tough and rubbery, but cook them just right and they can be the most incredible things you can eat. They’re inexpensive and can make a great breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner in a pinch. Broccoli, ham and Irish cheese (Kerrygold) frittata; hearty scrambled eggs with bacon (Nueske’s); shallot and Swiss; the prefect French omelet; deep dish quiche Lorraine. If time allows we will also look at how to fry eggs.

Bread Baking with Kathy Lehr Kathy Lehr has been teaching bread baking at WRSOC for over 25 years and now teaches all over the country. In this series you’ll learn the basics of classic French bread. Kathy spent a week in May of 2014 in Southern California with the VPN Association learning how to make authentic Napoletana style pizzas and doughs. She’ll now teach you the same techniques and explain what makes a truly wonderful pizza dough with a variety of uses. You may never want to order out pizza or buy store bought bread again. Kathy Lehr, 10:00 a.m.-1:30 p.m., $80 per class. French Bread Workshop: Saturday, May 2 This class will give you a formula to create any bread you desire! Follow Kathy Lehr through the basic chemistry of what happens when you combine yeast, flour, water, and salt. Once these are mastered, you should be producing beautiful and tasty breads! You’ll also learn about various grains and how they react to yeast. There are many tips for the busy, working person and how to eliminate many of your fears and misconceptions. You’ll have the opportunity to shape and bake a perfect French loaf (a batard) as well as make the dough to take home and bake in your own oven. To accompany our chewy French loaves, you’ll see how to make a Caesar salad using your leftover (if there ever is any!) stale bread. BRING: a plastic bench scraper, gallon sized Ziplock bags or medium bowl, apron and lunch sized brown paper bags to take home your doughs and baked breads.

In this class we’ll discuss the importance of using homemade or high quality stock bases in your sauce making. French cooking is based on the five mother sauces. These sauces are the béchamel (white sauce: roux thickened sauce made with milk); veloute sauce (roux thickened sauce made with chicken stock); espagnole (brown sauce: roux thickened sauce made with veal stock); classic tomato sauce and hollandaise sauce (made from egg yolks and clarified butter). We’ll be making each of these sauces along with some of their children. For example, when you add a reduction of tarragon vinegar and peppercorns and mix it with hollandaise you get sauce bearnaise. We’ll be branching each sauce off by adding ingredients to create another new sauce. The focus here are the sauces and not the dishes made with them. We’ll be serving each sauce with the appropriate vegetable or protein.

Science of Good Cooking - Sauces Part II


May 12,2015 - Time: 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
We have for the past several brochures used "Ruhlman’s Twenty" as our text book for this series and while we still highly recommended this book as part or your growing cookbook library we felt it was time for a change. With this in mind we have decide to move to "Cook’s Illustrated The Science of Good Cooking". These 12 classes will delve into why certain recipes and techniques work and others don’t. Recipes are chosen for the lesson they will teach you about the science of cooking. The book is required for this course and is highly recommended even if you are just taking one or two classes. All classes are demonstration / participation

We’ll finish this series of 12 classes focusing on fish and shellfish, eggs, and two classes dedicated to the art of sauce making. While the last two classes aren’t taken from The Science of Good Cooking, sauces are probably one of the most important things you can make in the kitchen–they can make or break a dish.

Catherine St. John, 6:30 p.m.-9:30 p.m., certificate awarded for 12 class series, $75 per class The Science of Good Sauce Making, Part II – Contemporary Sauces: Tuesday, May 12 Now that we’ve taken a look at the five classic mother sauces it’s time to look at more contemporary sauces. These are sauces that have become popular in the last 25 years or so. They’re lighter in texture and flavors and do not use roux as a thickener. While these sauces are now more popular than the classic sauces in the previous class, it’s still important to have a working knowledge of them. We’ll be covering pans sauces; butter sauces; cold sauces; fruit salsas; and cream sauces. Sautéed chicken with a simple lemon herb pan sauce; sear-roasted salmon with an orange beurre blanc sauce; cucumber mint yogurt sauce served with Greek meat patties; pan grilled chicken with a fresh pineapple salsa; and sautéed shrimp served with a watercress cream sauce.

New Menus! Kids Camp I Sherry Barros and Catherine St. John, June 22-26, 10:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m., $250, Ages 8-12 Kitchen Confidence: Each day your child will learn new confidence in the kitchen. We’ll also focus on organizational skills, kitchen safety, and cleaning up after themselves. They’ll try new foods and old favorites while working with new friends. With the confidence they gain in the kitchen they’ll be able to help cook dinner at home and for family events. Day One: Mexico Today we’ll focus on Mexico and make chicken enchiladas with homemade enchilada sauce; homemade salsa and nacho sauce served with corn chips and then we’ll finish with flan (Mexican caramel custard). Please bring a few containers to take home any leftovers. Day Two: Kid Favorites Who doesn’t love chicken fingers? Every kid I know loves them. We’ll be making our own chicken fingers in this class, but with a twist. Our chicken parmesan and pecan coated chicken fingers will have a tasty coating of cracker crumbs, parmesan and ground pecans. They’ll then be pan fried and finished in the oven. We’ll serve them with our own signature honey mustard sauce. We’ll then make a corn and garlic herb butter saute and finish with black and white brownies (½ cheesecake, ½ brownies). Please bring a few containers to take home any leftovers. Day Three: Asian Influences This class will explore the Far East and the influences Asian flavors have had on Western culture. Our menu will include Asian sticky ribs (soy, garlic, ginger and brown sugar marinated pork ribs slow baked and finished with a sweet sticky red sauce); pan fried noodles with vegetables; and we’ll finish by writing our own fortunes and stuffing them into fortune cookie foldovers. Please bring a few containers to take home any leftovers. Day Four: Breakfast for Lunch Breakfast is a meal that can be eaten anytime of day. We’ll have fun in the kitchen today making some yummy breakfast favorites. We’ll start by making egg, bacon and cheese muffin cups (individual omelettes); blueberry buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup and finish with fresh fruit kabobs with a yogurt and cream cheese dip. Please bring a few containers to take home any leftovers. Day Five: Italy We’ll end our week by visiting Italy. Please have your child bring an 8" x8" foil pan to class with them. Not only will they be making a pan of lasagne roll ups with meat sauce, but they’ll also be bringing home a pan to share with the family. We’ll be making a Caesar salad and while Caesar salad isn’t a traditional Italian salad (tt comes from Tiajuna, Mexico) it’s a favorite that I’ve found most kids will eat. We’ll end our meal with some homemade chocolate gelato. Please bring a few containers to take home any leftovers. BRING: an apron, container for leftovers, wear closed-toe non-skid shoes and ready to have some fun. Please remember that we do our best to ensure the safety of your child in the kitchen, but accidents do happen. WRSOC is not responsible for these accidents. The kitchen will be open 15 minutes before class each morning. Please do not drop your children off before that. Please try and pick up your child within 10-15 minutes after class ends.
