Artisan Soups |  February 27 from 10 AM – 12 PM

Crafting soups is all about utilizing what is currently in season and readily available from local farmers and markets. Soups are near and dear to Chef Gustard, because it allows him to unleash his creativity, taking into consideration the changing seasons and weather. Master the fundamentals, then venture into your own to create delightful and unique soups.

The Art of Braising |  March 23 from 10 AM – 12 PM

Embark on a culinary journey through braising meats, learning the reasons behind this cooking technique and the benefits that come from it. Some cuts of meat, often overlooked at the supermarket due to their lower cost, require more time for preparation, but investing time in them is sure to leave you satisfied.

Sauces |  April 27 from 10 AM – 12 PM

Sauces serve as the ultimate enhancement to dishes, and require a lot of attention and love. Different techniques can be used to achieve a well-balanced sauce that perfectly complements the overall flavor profile of the dish and the protein you’ve prepared.

Delightful Desserts |  May 25 from 10 AM – 12 PM

To round off a meal, a sweet treat usually follows the main course. We will look at a selection of desserts that are relatively simple to prepare. These delightful treats can be made in advance, eliminating the need for a hectic rush after dinner. With different techniques, craft desserts that are not only visually appealing but also irresistibly delicious.

Appetizers & Canapés |  June 29 from 10 AM – 12 PM

Learn to unleash your culinary creativity to craft delightful and fun appetizers and canapés. Infusing creativity and whimsy into your appetizers and canapés not only makes them visually enticing, but also sets the stage for a memorable dining experience. In this demo, we will highlight the significance of appetizers and canapés in entertaining guests.

Meal Planning & Prep |  July 27 from 10 AM – 12 PM

Cooking may be the last thing on our minds for some of us when we get home from work! However, dedicating just one day per week to cooking allows you to strategically plan your week with a menu filled with healthy and delicious meals. Emphasizing various techniques can significantly simplify the preparation of dinners or lunches, making your life much easier in the kitchen when preparing lunches and dinners.
