Jumpstart a new year of cooking with Milk Street's two-part series on our basics: stocking a pantry and knife skills. We'll meet on consecutive Tuesdays to cook, discuss culinary technique and theory, practice smart habits and share meals. The first week focuses on the DIY Pantry. You'll make long-lasting sauces, salsas and quick pickles that transform humble noodles or rice and beans. The second class introduces basic knife skills. You'll slice, smash, grate and chop your way through some of our favorite recipes using Western chef's knives, Chinese vegetable cleavers, Japanese santokus, microplanes and paring knives.
This is a two-part hands-on cooking course led by Milk Street instructors. It meets two Tuesday evenings in a row.
