What you'll learn in this quick meals class:

As the daily hustle and bustle seems never ending, it's more and more tempting to order in or go out to eat. This class is designed to simplify your nightly meals by teaching you how to create fast, healthy and delicious dinners without cutting into your well-deserved relaxation time. We'll incorporate a mini knife skills lesson, discuss time management strategies, and talk about several quick-cooking techniques that will not only make you more efficient in the kitchen, but also get your cooking time down to about 30 minutes. Each group will prepare and enjoy both meals.  

Menu:

  • Meal #1: Seared Chicken Breasts with Roasted Summer Squash, Sautéed Spinach and Red Pepper Coulis
  • Meal #2: Sautéed Shrimp with Pan-Steamed Broccoli, Sun-Dried Tomato Couscous and Herb Gremolata

Skills covered in class:

  • Knife skills
  • Time management
  • Cooking techniques
  • Cooking with the seasons
  • Selecting and searing poultry
  • Determining poultry doneness
  • Roasting vegetables
