Let’s get carrot away!
Huh? A cooking class only about carrots?
Not only because we love carrots so much. (We do!)
But part of being able to cook without recipes is also understanding your ingredients. What are they, how are they grown or made. What can you do with them? How does your cooking technique influences their taste and texture? How can you season them?
In this live online cooking class you’ll get al the answers to these questions.
Why would I take this class?
Because you love carrots?
(Because you hate carrots and want to learn how you can replace them?)
Because you want to learn what you can do with carrots?
Because you are a curious cook and want to learn everything possible, so why not about carrots too?
What can you expect?
What the Learn to cook without recipes classes make stand out from other cooking classes, is that we won’t be simply following a recipe. Everybody else is already doing that. Instead, we will focus on 1 subject only. That could be a cooking technique, an ingredient (carrots), a dish or another theme.
On Monday, January 30th, 2023 we will kick off the series Ingredients in the spotlight with carrots. We will use different cooking techniques to cook them and taste them side by side. This way you can compare what the influence the technique has on the taste and texture of your carrots. We will talk and share our favorite seasoning and ways to use carrots, so you can learn from each other.
Class is open to all dietary preferences, and dishes can be made with meat or vegetable stock.

- Why carrots are orange, and what that has to do with the Netherlands (our national color is orange, will explain!).

About your chef
This class will be taught by chef Edie Dourleijn, once a picky eater who couldn’t cook.
She documented her path to eating and cooking everything as one of the first food bloggers of her home country The Netherlands (in 2006!). To learn more quickly, she looked around for classes that would help her understand what is going on in her pots and pans, but they didn’t exist. Eventually, she ended up at culinary school.
Now chef Edie teaches her Learn to cook without recipes classes for curious cooks who want to become free of recipes. Just like she once was.
Edie also hosts all kinds of entertaining and educational virtual cooking classes to celebrate any occasion with family or friends, or as a (real) team building, receiving 5 star reviews.
