Thanksgiving in a Nutshell



In this class you'll learn how to roast a whole cornish hen, which is basically just a small chicken, and you can use those skills to make and whole roasted bird.  We'll also make some mashed potatoes, glazed carrots, and a gravy to pour over all of it. This is basically a Thanksgiving practice run.

You've got to have mashed potatoes, and were making an excellent rendition with buttermilk and you'll learn how to make sure they come out fluffy and full of flavor. Another technique you'll learn is "glazing", and that doesn't just mean pouring a sticky sweet sauce on top, we're doing the classic french method, which you can also use to glaze sweet potatoes, parsnips, and more!
