Pureed soups [Dec 12]

If you really want to learn to cook without recipes, pureed soups are a great dish to practice with. The concept is easy: 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.
