Tapas Essentials

The “small plates” trend currently in vogue in so many New York City hot spots has its deep roots in the lively taverns of Spain, where tapas are enjoyed with wine and friends. Bring this social and savory style of eating to your own table. After this course, you’ll have the know-how to assemble impromptu cocktail “bites” or combine several dishes into a delectable, eclectic meal. Either way, these small plates are a great way to bring big flavors, friends and family together.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

You’ll prepare soup, vegetable, meat and seafood recipes for such tapas favorites as tortilla española (potato omelet) and almendras fritas (savory sautéed almonds). You’ll polish your culinary skills and acquire a few cooking methods traditional to the Spanish kitchen, using the cazuela (earthenware casserole) and plancha (griddle) to conjure authentic dishes.

Charcuterie & Pâtés

Imagine setting out beautifully arranged plates of pâtés, saucisson and prosciutto —all made at home in your very own kitchen. At ICC, you can learn elements of the craft of the charcutier, a trade that has been around for centuries. Getting a taste of life as a charcutier doesn’t have to take a big bite out of your schedule, however; by simply following our trademark Total ImmersionSM training method, you’ll be amazed by how much you’ll gain in just 15 class hours. Don your own set chef’s whites, enter our professional kitchens and listen as chef-instructors share the techniques, tips and trade secrets that took them years to learn.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

You’ll walk away with hands-on knowledge to make fresh-cured bacon, prosciutto, fresh and dry-cured sausages, pâtés, pork rillettes and duck and ham confit. Among the subjects discussed will be the traditions of charcuterie; an overview of pig anatomy and butchery; methods used to salt, smoke and cure meats; and techniques of working with seasonings, casings and more.

Italian Cooking Class

Essentials of Italian Cooking

In this course centered on authenticity and aptitude, your immersion begins on day one, and the fast-paced learning and excitement never let up. Under the watchful eye of passionate chef-instructors, you’ll learn to craft wonderful stocks and sauces, produce fresh Italian breads and pastas, and become well-versed at cooking an assortment of traditional beef, chicken, fish and vegetable dishes.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN

You’ll train at your own personal workstation in a large, airy instructional kitchen designed specifically for Italian cooking. Each class begins with a brief discussion of the theory and techniques behind the day’s lesson, but the majority of your time will be spent in the kitchen doing, not watching. Just imagine being dressed in chef’s whites, growing in skill and confidence as you learn the keys to prepare authentic Italian cuisine!

In five sessions, you’ll cover topics including dried and filled pastas; cheese and salumi; pizza and calzone; vegetable, seafood and meat antipasti; stocks and sauce-making; soups and beans; and Italian grains…in other words, the defining tastes and techniques of Italian cooking that are then yours for a lifetime of sharing with family and friends.
