So You Still Think You Can’t Cook?

I’m late on this, so here real quick and to the point, Ann Marie Michaels over at the great Cheeseslave Blog has created what appears to me to be a great, 13-week online cooking class, dubbed Surf & Turf.

So, all you folks who think you can’t cook, head on over and sign up. Note that the video indicates that enrollment ended August 14, however I have confirmed with Ann Marie that there are still four more days to sign up, so get going.

Here’s the class schedule:

Lesson #1: Protein & Fat: Why You Need It
Lesson #2: Shopping & Stocking Up
Lesson #3: Grilling: Setting Up an Outdoor Grill
Lesson #4: Seafood: Raw & Lightly Cooked
Lesson #5: Seafood: Broiled, Fried & Braised
Lesson #6: Bone Broth: Making Stock from Scratch
Lesson #7: Soups & Stews
Lesson #8: Roasting, Braising, Reductions Sauces & Gravies
Lesson #9: Pan Frying & Deep Frying

Lesson #11: Organ Meats 1: Heart, Tongue & Bone Marrow
Lesson #12: Organ Meats 2: Liver Four Ways

…Still undecided? Here’s a couple of sneak peaks from the classes: lesson 1 and lesson 4.

    I like the concept and hope it will be helpful to those who are kitchen challenged.

    The preview was filmed in very good quality and audio was just right.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I would recommend this to Ann Marie in the future when dealing with a avocado. I winced a bit when she used the knife tip to extract the pit. Don’t try that at home folks.

      That’s exactly how I’ve always dealt with avocado, AJP. Good video.
