Open Kitchen | SCS Cooking Fundamentals | Grilling

Every week Level One students at Stratford Chefs School tackle one of the ten foundational methods of cooking. This is your opportunity to explore these cooking techniques as taught in Stratford Chefs School's renowned professional culinary program. This 4-hour, hands-on intensive class is perfect for the more advanced home cook or for anyone interested in examining a future career in the culinary arts.

Week 10: Grilling

Grilling is often considered the “perfect” cooking method for the nutritionally minded chef. Items suited to it are generally lean and, like steaming, do not require the addition of fat. Since grilling is a fast method, meats are usually prime cuts; cooking time will not be long enough to break down connective tissue. Because the cooking period is very short, there is very little opportunity to introduce flavour; marinating can help solve this. Delicate items often benefit from basting with oil or fat to add flavour and moisture, and to prevent sticking. With Eli Silverthorn.
