This 4-hour, hands-on intensive class is perfect for the more advanced home cook or for anyone interested in examining a future career in the culinary arts.

Week 1: Boiling.

The series begins with boiling; a safe and simple method of cooking with a self-regulating temperature. Liquid is boiling when it is rolling vigorously, and bubbles break frequently on its surface. Water, the most widely used liquid for this method of cooking, boils at 100ºC (212ºF). In practice, there are slow, medium and fast boils. It is necessary to adjust the level of the boil to suit the food being cooked — if boiled too hard the ingredients may deteriorate; if boiled too low, foodstuffs may stick to the pot.

From pasta to risotto, stock to soup, learn 8 recipes dedicated to the method of boiling.
