What you'll learn in this basic cooking class:

At Purple Kale Kitchenworks, we do not advocate cooking different meals for kids than adults, no matter the age. Using the modular “2 minutes” approach, we discuss the option of custom-crafting individual meals, but we teach how to make food that is, first and foremost, a pleasure to eat. In the Workshop, we talk some about picky eaters and a great deal about time constraints in preparing a meal. But this is less a class about how to feed one’s kids, and more about feeding the family as a whole. The cost includes a greenmarket lunch, an array of tastings, a 50-page syllabus, and a bag of sample provisions to take home. Also, all Workshop participants qualify for a significantly discounted private consultation, highly recommended as a way to help put class lessons into practice.

An ambitious, yet informal five-hour workshop designed to teach ways of the professional kitchen for use in the contemporary home. The class is based in Park Slope, Brooklyn, although there is an option To Host a Workshop at Home. Students leave the Workshop after having taken various turns improvising at the class stove, cooking with terrific and often uncommon, seasonal ingredients. They return home with a broad array of foundational recipes and with increased confidence to open up their refrigerator and toss together a great meal. The Workshop is not a techniques class. It goes beyond typical culinary instruction, usually limited to specific dishes or methods, and which sends students off with a handful of recipes that they forget to use. But the Workshop also does not require culinary expertise. Simply, the class builds on whatever diverse skills students have, and helps them to re-imagine their use.
