Service Description

DiCristo Meals celebrates the authenticity of delicious meals, with fresh ingredients, along with the joys of cooking while learning. While we've enjoyed offering cooking classes over the past 9 years to kids, teens, and adults alike, we're excited to expand our classes into a "course format" created for those who wish to truly understand and explore the artistry of cooking in more depth. Our Adult "Home Ec" Cooking Course was designed to take the skills of those who enjoy cooking to whole new level. Our Course outline includes the following: Sauces and Soups The authenticity of stocks and sauces are what distinguishes a homemade chicken soup or bolognese from a restaurant chicken soup or bolognese. Good stocks and sauces form the base flavor component for many dishes that start this way, making it an essential kitchen skill. Learn the fundamentals behind creating a classic stock or sauce, while preparing classic soups. Then master the “mother” sauces, from a Tomato base to an Alfredo base, and so many more. Herbs and Spices Herbs and Spices serve as the foundation to any and all recipes. The right combination of herbs are what separates a good dish from a great dish. The right amount of spice separates authentic from generic. When joining the two together, we're creating flavor, and flavor is everything. Poultry vs Seafood Our first 2 classes are going to serve us well, as we begin to incorporate meat and seafood. We'll review what we've learned in a mid-term type style, taking 2 recipes that call for meat and seafood, preparing two meals from start to finish. *All about Pizza, making everything from scratch! We're putting what we've learned to good use. Starting with the most important part of any good Pizza.... the dough and the sauce!! *Express Yourself This class was designed straight from the "Iron Chef" playbook, where students will be assigned one key ingredient, in which they have to create a dish from start to finish, using whatever supporting ingredients that are available in the kitchen. Students will be given their final assignments on this day, and will be expected to implement ingredients and techniques they've learned throughout the course. *Final Exam It's time to recap! We'll enjoy a look back on all that we've learned. Students will get the opportunity to prepare an original recipe, and present it to the class for tasting.
