If you really want to learn to cook without recipes, pureed soups are a great dish to practice with. You can see them as a canvas that you can color any way you like: cook a bulky vegetable in stock, then puree and season.
In this pureed soups cooking class we will play with the cooking technique and flavorings, so you not only have a lot of inspiration for future butternut squash soups, but other pureed soups as well.

Cook, puree, season. That’s really it. Learn to make your own pureed soups!
Why this class on pureed soups?
Breaking down pureed soup to their bare essence, you will learn they’re nothing more than cooked bulky vegetables, that are seasoned and pureed. Simple, isn’t it? But if you look at recipes, there are many more routes you can take. We will discuss, compare and test those ways, so you can decide for yourself, which one works best for you, depending on the ingredient, your mood, the weather, your tools available, etc.
Learning to cook is all about figuring out what works best for you, both during cooking and how your meal will taste. And when you get that, you will only see recipes as an inspiration, not a strict guidelines anymore.
What can you expect?
What the classes in the Taste & Technique series make stand out from other cooking classes, is that in each class we will focus on 1 subject only. That could be a cooking technique, an ingredient, a dish or another theme.
On Monday, December 12th, you will learn all about pureed soups. We will break down the concept to it’s bare bones and make 2 versions of the same soup (butternut squash), so you can taste the difference of the technique used and learn how this influences your recipe. Together we will season the soup, with the ingredients you have on hand, inspiring each other.
Pureed butternut squash soups can be made vegan, vegetarian, or with a meat stock. It’s up to you!

About your chef
In her cooking classes, chef Edie loves to explain what happens in your pots and pans. In these 1 subject only cooking classes we will dive a bit deeper then just follow a recipe. It won’t be super science-y, but often we will do experiments so you can taste the difference between various methods, cooking techniques or seasonings. All to empower you to get a bit looser with recipes so you can come a more confident and creative cook.
Feel free to get in touch with any questions you have.
Class with Edie was great!
I’ve had a previous class with her and she quickly adapted my skill and made the class informative and educational, focusing on things I may not already know. The soup was delicious! I also learned a technique of balancing with an acid that I carried over to another dish I made this week!
