The Key Cooking Class

We are conducting cooking classes in our town with aspiring young cooks. The classes are sponsored by the Union of Youth, a youth-led organization in Northfield and held at the Emmaus Church kitchen.

Class 1: Eggs. We cooked hard-cooked (not hard-boiled) eggs and an egg omelet with sweet peppers and onions. Here are the recipes.

Class 2: Meat and Potatoes. We cooked mashed potatoes with garlic and pork chops in a brown cream sauce. Here are the recipes.

Class 3: Pasta. We made pasta from flour and eggs and served it with Alfredo sauce. Here are the recipes.

Class 4: Stir-Fry. We discussed the principles of stir-frying and analyzed the construction of a wok. Then, we cooked chicken and a variety of vegetables in a lightly thickened soy sauce. Here are the recipes.

Class 5: Cookies. To celebrate the holidays, we made three types of cookies: shortbread cookies called Viennese Crescents, spice cookies called Marcus’s Ginger Citrus Cookies, and oatmeal cookies called Ultimate Oatmeal Chocolate Chippers. Here are the recipes.
