Knife Skills 1

Knowing how to use knives skillfully is the foundation of all cooking, and doesn't have to be scary or frustrating. Many home and even professional cooks don't always wield a knife correctly, however, which increases food preparation time and makes the process harder --- and less safe --- than it should be. Simply put, good knives are the foundation of a well-equipped kitchen. This class remedies all these basic issues: You will learn how to slice, dice, chop, and much more in the safest and most efficient manner. This class will even guide you through the practice of keeping your knives sharp and handling them correctly.

Beyond Bean-to-Bar: Fundamental Chocolate Techniques

Chocolate forms the backbone of many of our most beloved desserts and confections, yet the complex techniques required for success often elude many cooks. Building upon our introductory bean-to-bar experience, students will further utilize our exclusive house-made chocolate in finished preparations with a range of origins and flavor profiles. In this demonstration and hands-on class, students will learn the fundamentals of chocolate product identification, basic tempering, molding, and decoration techniques, as well as finished confections and desserts that best showcase chocolate’s alluring properties. Recipes covered in class will include Single-Origin Bonbons; Chocolate Caramels; Chocolate Crémeux, and Chocolate Ice Cream. Students will leave the class with samples of the items produced, and exclusive bars available only at ICE. Michael Laiskonis joined ICE in 2012 fresh off of an eight-year tenure as Executive Pastry Chef at Le Bernardin. Laiskonis has long been one of the industry's most creative and talented chefs. He helped Le Bernardin earn four stars from "The New York Times" and three Michelin stars. He was named to America's Top Ten Pastry Chefs by "Pastry Art & Design" in both 2002 and 2003 and was "Bon Appétit's" Pastry Chef of the Year in 2004. Best known for his use of modern techniques to reinvent classic desserts, he was also awarded the coveted James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef in 2007. Most recently, Chef Laiskonis received the IACP's 2014 Culinary Professional of the Year Award, one of the most distinguished honors in the culinary field. Laiskonis has been an active writer, in print and on-line, including "Gourmet", "Saveur", and "The Atlantic" and has appeared on television shows such as "Top Chef: Just Desserts". While Laiskonis is best known as a pastry chef, he spent most of the first half of his career on the savory side of the kitchen.

Ice Cream & Sorbet Technology

Whether enjoyed alone or as vital components in modern plated desserts, ice creams and sorbets present more than meets the eye. By looking deeper at their structures-complex solutions, suspensions, or emulsions-pastry chefs continue to refine formulas, techniques, and ingredients to create ever more flavorful results. In this class with former Le Bernardin Executive Pastry Chef Michael Laiskonis, students will be exposed to basic frozen dessert theory. You'll prepare a range of examples-from Granitas; Sorbets; and classic Ice Creams to more innovative preparations and static frozen items.

Korean BBQ

The popularity of Korean BBQ is growing, fueled by the DIY aspect of making dinner with friends and family and eating as you cook. You don’t have to have a table with a built-in grill to enjoy your favorite flavor-packed grilled meats at home: grill pans on your stove or an outdoor grill are great stand-ins. Your menu starts with gyeran jjim (steamed egg custard); then moves to the grilling of sokalbi gui (beef short ribs) and samgyeopsal (pork belly) and assorted banchan (spicy vegetable side dishes) complete the meal.
