January 6, 2016

Because you LOVE our Asian cooking classes, we have added two new ones  to our Winter/Spring class schedule at The Culinary Center of Kansas City, both  taught by our fun and talented cooking instructor, Chef Yvette Hirang… (BTW, oishii means “yummy.”)

SushiWake Up Little Sushi!
Wed, Jan 20, 2016  |  6:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Join us tonight as we learn how to make sushi! One of our most popular classes will be taught this evening by Chef Yvette Hirang, who will show us how to make the basic types of rolls and get you rollin’ yourself with some hands-n action. We’ll also learn about sushi rice, the ingredients used with sushi, such as wasabi and pickled ginger, how to safely store fish and where and how to buy sushi-grade fish. We’ll learn hand-rolling techniques and presentation of our sushi. Sushi always delivers on flavor and fun, so come learn what terms like Nigiri, Temaki and Maki mean. Oishii. (That means ‘yummy’ in Japanese.) You’re crazy if you think you can’t do it yourself. Now you can make sushi in YOUR kitchen.  This Hands-On class includes Tastings, so let’s get our sushi on!  (Click here for more info or to sign up online.)

Test-Driving A Potential Cooking Instructor

December 6, 2015

We are always looking for new talent to teach cooking classes here at The Culinary Center of Kansas City.  Before we add a new instructor to our team at The Culinary Center of Kansas City, our Dean of Deliciousness schedules a ‘New Instructor Demo.‘ The potential instructor presents a brief demonstration class for CCKC staff. We observe, ask questions, try delicious food and give feedback to the instructor.  Then, as a group, we make a determination as to whether we think the instructor meets our customers’ high expectations for culinary educators here at The Culinary Center of Kansas City.

We had a New Instructor Demo this week, and let’s just say that he was fabulous, especially with his knowledge of Asian cuisines. Sorry to be a bit secretive, but…. we want to make a splash when we announce him in the coming weeks.  We’ll be coming at you soon with some new classes to our upcoming schedule so keep your eyes peeled.
