<aside> 🍳 Learn to cook delicious, healthy, and affordable meals without a recipe.


You don’t have to be a professional chef to make really good food. This course is designed for anyone who wants to make actually delicious food at home. In four weeks, you’ll begin to build a cooking practice that will enable you to eat well, save money, and discover the lifelong joy of improvising in the kitchen.

Instructor: Eric has almost a decade of cooking experience, and for the last 5 years he has cooked daily for 3-12 people. He has explored a wide variety of cuisines and cooking styles (Chinese, French, Indonesian, Indian, Caribbean, Central Texas BBQ, among others).


<aside> πŸŽ“ Freestyle Cooking 101 is designed as an experiential learning seminar. Each class will consist of a short instructional segment (where students will learn basic techniques and principles) followed by a longer period where students will practice cooking for themselves and their classmates. Past students have described FC101 as a series of educational dinner parties.


There will be two cohorts of FC101 during the summer semester. Tentative dates below:

Wednesday, May 15 6:30-9:00pm Wednesday, June 12 6:30-9:00pm
Wednesday, May 22 6:30-9:00pm Wednesday, June 19 6:30-9:00pm
Wednesday, May 29 6:30-9:00pm Wednesday, June 26 6:30-9:00pm
Wednesday, June 5 6:30-9:00pm Wednesday, July 3 6:30-9:00pm

<aside> 🚨 What is the time commitment for FC101? This course will teach you the fundamentals of home cooking. However, the only way to build your skill is practice. Unless unavoidable conflicts arise, students are expected to attend all four sessions in full and complete roughly 30 minutes of homework tasks each week (don’t worry, it’s not boring school homework).
