We are going to break down this experience into two concepts: creating chef-driven cocktails and creating upscale snacks. Our focus is to make this simple to execute, easy to cleanup, and give you the confidence to plan something last minute. PART 1: INTRO -I will introduce myself and the experience and take a moment to meet each other over food+drink. -Cocktails and food will be introduced, will go over recipes and any questions anyone may have. -We talk safety + sanitation, the two first most important ingredients to cooking. PART 2: TECHNIQUES -I will break down the techniques we will be learning, how/when to use them best. Here are examples of techniques we will go over: +knife cuts +seasoning with acidity +mise en place +searing/basting meat properly +one-pot wonders +using all five senses +milk-washing cocktails +sous-vide syrups +house-made tinctures +clean as you go PART 3: BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER -From this point we will prepare the "party" for our guests. All the food/drink we prepped will be plated, shaken, and served! -I will show you simple, yet elegant ways to elevate the decor around your home. -We will go over setup procedures that will make cleanup an easy and seamless process. (Winter Menu: crudite platter, steak + sauce vierge, elote canape, california canape, cookies, bloody mary milk punch, chorizo margarita, rum+tea cocktail)
My journey as a chef began very modestly. I was pretty nervous when I began at my first fine dining restaurant, however after finding my niche in cooking I quickly used my talents to conquer every kitchen I came across. I worked through every hot line in Sacramento to make my way up the ranks in SF. I learned everything I could, including front of house work: bartender, sommelier, management, it all became seamless work for me. It was in 2019 when I realized what my industry was missing and how I am able to utilize my talents to help those around me thrive. I created Our Friends Career Development, a nonprofit dedicated to job training and job placement in the restaurant industry. I educate our workers and cultivate their work ethic in a way they can create opportunities for themselves. Needless to say, I love to teach.
