This two-part series is for the cooking enthusiast who wants to broaden his horizons on the Big Green Egg. We will cover basic knife skills, an overview of cooking over natural wood and how this method of cooking has evolved, and the four basic techniques of Big Green Egg cooking: Grilling, Smoking, Roasting and Baking. This is a great opportunity to break in your EGG and enhance your cooking skills, with the classical techniques taught by a highly trained Chef.
Session one will introduce you to the basics of the Big Green Egg itself, including a quick overview of components, history of the kamado, setting up your EGG for different types of cooking, temperature control and more. Then we will get cooking as we move in to the first two elements: Grilling and Smoking.
Session two will focus on Roasting and Baking, two very special techniques on the EGG. Chef Mark will explain all the tips and tricks you need to know to roast and bake effectively on your EGG. He will include traditional techniques and the fundamental ideas behind baking and roasting, and then the group will prep and roast chicken and pork, then bake focaccia and dessert.
