COOK CLUB – FRUIT
Fruit is an ingredient in cooking that is a natural sweetener for many dishes we prepare. This class will help us to understand how to choose fruit at its’ ripest; cook it from frozen, keep it from getting mushy, and maintain its’ nutritional value while cooking it. We’ll discuss the tools and equipment needed for prepping it. Our lesson will be creating an Artistic and professional looking Fruit Platter; Pan-seared Pork Chop Casserole with sauteed Apples; Lemon Pie in a blender; Bouchee (Puff Pastry Circles) glazed Fruit and French Pastry Cream; sweet Cream Cheese Fruit filled Puff Pastry Braids; sauteed Bananas Foster with rich Vanilla Ice Cream; Fruit Tart with tempered French Pastry Cream and glazed Preserves, and amazing Watermelon Cake! When we’re finished, we’ll sit down to enjoy all our great food and as a group discuss what we learned and accomplished.
If you cannot attend a class, with three day notice you can receive credit for the class. See Sweet Basil Cook Club for a complete description of this series.
