It is the shells!  You do not eat them, but you can create the most wonderful sauces, soups and butters from the shrimp shell.  We will be making A Simple Saute of Shrimp with Tomatoes and Spinach; Shrimp Bisque (a creamy soup made with the flavor from the shells) and we will also make a Fish Fumet (stock made from fish bones) that we will then create a traditional French Seafood Stew).

Just give us call at 330-650-1665 to take advantage of this great deal. Mise en Place: Tuesday January 8 Mise en Place is a French culinary phrase which means \"putting in place\" or \"everything in its place.\" It refers to the set up required before cooking, and is often used in professional kitchens to refer to organizing and arranging the ingredients (e.g., cuts of meat, relishes, sauces, par-cooked items, spices, freshly chopped vegetables, and other components) that a cook will require for the menu items that are expected to be prepared during a shift.  This technique is also very important to the home cook.  We will put this to use in all our classes.  We will tackle 3 recipes tonight that will require Mise en Place to make our cooking a success.  Chicken & Minced Vegetable Soup; Simple Greens with Goat Cheese Croutons and Balsamic Vinaigrette; Classic French Roast Chicken with Carrots and Potatoes.

It is the shells!  You do not eat them, but you can create the most wonderful sauces, soups and butters from the shrimp shell.  We will be making A Simple Saute of Shrimp with Tomatoes and Spinach; Shrimp Bisque (a creamy soup made with the flavor from the shells) and we will also make a Fish Fumet (stock made from fish bones) that we will then create a traditional French Seafood Stew).
