This 5 day culinary trip to The Farm Cooking School in the beautiful Delaware Valley includes everything you need to know for creative freedom in the kitchen: knives skills, culinary techniques (searing, braising, roasting, fish sous vide, poaching, and grilling) and a variety of seasonal desserts based on egg techniques (custard, ice cream, meringue...). A full three course meal will be created in each of 6 classes and enjoyed leisurely at the end.
Enjoy breakfast on your own at your accommodations (see under "contact" for a list of local accomodations) or at one of the many great local cafes before heading to the cooking school, which is located on an organic farm run by Roots to River. We will have the opportunity to pick fruits and vegetables either on the farm or near by to use in the classes. Classes will take place 4 mornings and 2 evenings, all followed by a leisurely sit down meal. Classes will use Roots to River organic vegetables, award-winning local meats, and sustainable seafood.
After morning classes, enjoy an insider's look at various local farms and businesses including a coffee roastery in Lambertville, a premium ice cream shop in Princeton with a demonstration of the creation of an unusual flavor, and a walk through the brewing process at a Brewery in New Hope, PA, and a private dinner on an award winning livestock farm.
The cost per person is $1500 including all hands-on cooking classes, lunch and dinner except 1 evening on your own, afternoon excursions/demonstrations, and a copy of both Ian's The Farm and Shelley's Just Tacos cookbooks. Antique lovers can enjoy the many Antique shops in Lambertville, NJ and the Wednesday early morning flea market nearby.
This class is designed for adults over 21. Please let us know if you will require transportation.
