Cooking 101

with Moira Rascati


This hands-on introduction will include basic knife and cooking techniques such as sautéing, poaching, broiling and pureeing along with sanitation guidelines, measurements and ingredient resources. Start with soup stocks, potato leek soup, polenta, no cook tomato sauce and cream sauces. Class two will have us braising pork steak, making chicken three ways and a creamy risotto. Our final class pulls it all together as we create a dinner party from soup to nuts featuring an appetizer, winter salad, roast pork tenderloin and ending with rich individual pumpkin cheesecake.

​Moira Rascati is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in NY and has been a sous-chef at Joseph’s by the Sea for the past 25 years. She has taught at SMCC for 12 years.
