The Sage Table
Bones, Broths & Braising
Tuesday January 31st 6:30-9:30pm $70-85
There is something about having a pot of soup on the stove that seems to be universally comforting. While most pots of hot liquid with veggies involved are healing in some way or another, in this class we are going to go deeper and explore the benefits of simmering bones and meat, plus some other less-common ingredients that are especially renowned for their healing properties. We will detail the process for making the gut-healing, nutritious bone broths that can be a base for deeply tasty soups, including where to source responsible bones and meats, and then use these broths as a base for delicious bowls of soup. Chicken Soup that you’ll want to have on hand in case you feel the sniffles coming on. You will also learn the basics of braising meat, a slow-cooking method that can be applied to all sorts of different cuts of meats to produce meltingly tender and highly flavored results. To demonstrate, we will cook a beef stew in the style of the traditional Osso Bucco, cooked with vegetables, tomatoes, and herbs. On the side, we will make a soft and creamy polenta to soak up all of the rich cooking juices.
This will be a very informative class for those wishing to use high quality animal products as a means to moving towards radiant health - or for enthusiastic meat-eaters!
As usual, class will be held in the kitchen of my beautiful home in a sprawling, modern Craftsman in North Oakland. It’s a 15 minute walk from the Rockridge Bart station and only a few minutes from the 51st/MLK exit off Highway 24.
Cooking is done with the highest quality ingredients possible, adhering to the idea of SOUL food: Seasonal, Organic, Unrefined and Local. As much as possible is purchased at local farmer’s markets in the East Bay.
