Many home cooks think that confits, pâtés, and rilletes are demanding recipes best left to the professional chefs. In reality, they are simple to do in your own kitchen and the results are so good you might never go “store bought” again.
In this meat preservation class, Kara Taylor will teach methods for preserving meat using fat. You will learn to make a basic confit, one of the oldest methods for preserving meat and a technique that comes from southwest France.
The careful process renders the meat incredibly flavorful, tender and convenient to use.
Taylor will also be teaching hands-on production of rillettes with participants taking home their own rillettes to share with family and friends.
The class will culminate in a light dinner prepared by Taylor.
