ESB Culinary Test Kitchen
Continuing our mission of providing food and wine education, join us for another Epicurean Santa Barbara Culinary Test Kitchen! This culinary workshop gives 5 novice chefs the opportunity to cook a new recipe with guidance of a knowledgable culinary professional, and the company of fellow hobbyist cooks. January’s Test Kitchen will be hosted by Judy Astbury!
Think of all the recipes you wish you could make, but aren’t sure how to execute… What does it mean to ‘dice’? How do I know if chicken is cooked properly? What the shuck is a roux?! Well now is your chance to sum up the courage to expand your cooking horizons! Want to make a beautifully roasted chicken? Perfectly medium rare Ribeye? Creamy Mac & cheese? You got this!
Guests will bring all ingredients for their dish. The host home will provide the kitchen and tools. If a recipe requires substantial prep (i.e. brining, curing, etc…) those preparations should be done in advance, and the ESB team can answer cooking related questions prior to the event so you are well prepared for your workshop!
Guest Registration must include:
Please list at least at least two (2) dishes (titles, recipes, or website links). ESB will contact you as the event nears to confirm the dish from your list. ESB Team will choose one of the submissions for the attendee to prepare. (This ensures a variety of dishes!) An ESB team member will reach out to guests before the event to confirm details.
No pressure here…Some recipes will be winners and some will be duds. The best recipes we’ll share with club members, so that others can expand their horizons as home chefs as well! As always, enjoy a glass of wine, learn something new from your Chef leader and fellow members, and then sample each other’s dishes!
