You’ve been on the road for weeks, come home tired and hungry —and there’s nothing to eat. Not to worry: Cookbook author, teacher and chef Linda Carucci will show us how to stock pantry and freezer with long-lasting staples and whip up a hearty home-cooked meal in 40 minutes.
The ZOOM session is at 5 pm Wednesday Feb 10 and is by email invitation only.
Linda is well-known for her cooking classes and her book, “Cooking School Secrets for Real World Cooks.” She’s a former dean of the California Culinary Academy and Julia Child Curator of Food Arts at COPIA in Napa, and has been named Cooking Teacher of the Year by the International Association of Culinary Professionals. The French Laundry’s Thomas Keller calls her “ the consummate teacher, cook, and coach all rolled into one.”
She’ll demonstrate the preparation of White Chicken Chili (with suggestions for a vegan version), taking questions and giving advice. Please note this is a demonstration (not a cook-along) class. Those who register will be sent the recipe so you’ll have the option to shop for ingredients ahead of time and prepare the chili after the class.
A Montclair resident, she’ll be introduced and hosted by her friend and neighbor BATW Executive Director Ginny Prior.
