VIRTUAL 5-WEEK COOKING CLASS

PinClipart.com_crock-pot-clip-art_1139583

Welcome to the Y’s Simple Cooking with Heart Beginner Class. Throughout the next 5 weeks, we will be coaching you through various cooking skills, from knife skills to braising meats. This curriculum was created by the American Heart Association.

Every Monday, we’ll release a new class, where we’ll cover a culinary topic and a nutrition topic, then cook our way through 2-3 recipes. We’ll focus on decreasing salt, fat, and sugar in our cooking by developing bold flavors with herbs and spices. In each class, you will find videos of the nutrition and culinary components, the recipes, skill cards for the skills learned in class, and related recipes to practice at home.

Wash those hands and let’s jump in! Follow us at YMCA DC Food and show us what your cooking #YMCACommunityTable.

Q&A

Question: How can I tell if I cooking oil is hot enough to cook with?

Answer: Recipes often say to add your ingredients “when the pan is hot”. But how do you know? It’s ready when the oil starts to shimmer, or appear dimpled, when you tilt the pan.

Question: What are the benefits of processed vs raw tomatoes?
