If you’ve ever wanted to tap into the secrets of a great bowl of soup, then Souper Jenny‘s winter cooking class is the place to go. “The secrets to great soup are lots of love and seasonal ingredients,” explains Chef Jessica, who teaches the classes. She has been cooking at Souper Jenny since 2010 and knows a thing or two about making amazing soup. “Sourcing fresh, local or organic ingredients will have you setting yourself up for success.”
She also believes that when using seasonal vegetables, you are starting with a product that is at the height of its flavor. “It really means less work for you. There’s not much you have to do to a beautiful winter squash right now. A little salt and pepper, onions, maybe some garlic, stock, squash and puree.” Chef Jessica says she likes to teach healthy cooking styles and tap into recipes that are user-friendly. “Incorporating fresh herbs, spices, citrus juices, and of course seasonal ingredients, helps keep calories and fat down while making a delicious end result,” she explains.
On December 10, learn all about the ins and outs of creating a hearty winter stew. First timers can expect to have a good time while also getting some helpful insider tips. “The class is demonstration style, and there is a tasting at the end,” she says. “I try to do five recipes in two hours! It’s a lot but makes for a great class.” The class is $40 per person and are held at Souper Jenny in Buckhead at 7 p.m. Reservations are required.
