Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center, in Park Slope, Brooklyn, and Slow Food USA present a four class cooking series in January and February with Tamar Adler, author of An Everlasting Meal. In this series, Tamar will teach the fundamental skills and outlooks that allow cooking to become instinctual. Each class is grounded in one technique, but with a pronounced emphasis on understanding different applications, substitutions, and the reasons for everything.
Tamar's mentor, Alice Waters writes of the cook:
"She has an instinctive gift for cooking, an almost effortless way of creating meals—and as I quickly learned, she is an extraordinary writer: tremendously talented, with an unswerving commitment to the philosophy of honest food. How rare and wonderful it is to have a book grounded in instinct, prompting the reader to examine the world around him or herself differently, allowing cooking to become a continuous, integrative process that flows from meal to meal."
All class attendees will recieve a copy of Tamar Adler's new book, An Everlasting Meal. As an added bonus, Slow Food members will recieve a 20% discount on the series; just use discount code "SLOW" when purchasing your tickets.
