Why Underground Cooking Class?
In 14 years of cooking I have attended good and bad cooking classes and seminars. Even though something can be learned from even a bad class, I noticed one constant question that loomed in many peoples' minds. "Why". Understanding why things work enpowers the chef or cook to have command of his or her actions. Thus, being able to fix, alter or predict all cooking actions. The internet is filled with thousands of recipes for flavors and flavor combinations. Rarely does one actually learn the core techniques of proper cooking. I want everyone to be able to cook with complete undestanding, this begins with knowledge and technique.
