Tools & Techniques of Tandoori Cooking
Join Chef Michael Brockman, the corporate chef of Wood Stone ovens, for an afternoon of cooking techniques focused around the tandoor oven in ICE’s Advanced Culinary Lab. Many Western chefs haven't yet had the opportunity to work with this cylindrical clay oven in person. So with Chef Michael Brockman, we'll discover the tricks and tools needed for successful cooking using this versatile tool---which works entirely differently from the conventional or convection oven you probably use on a daily basis. With its open flame on the inside, one-foot-thick walls, vented top, and temperatures reaching up to 900 degrees fahrenheit, this is a whole different approach to roasting! We'll start with traditional Indian dishes, then build and expand into all types of cuisines as we explore the endless possibilities of tandoori cooking.
