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 4: Sautéing

Since both sautéing and pan-frying are done in a pan, people often confuse the two, but there are distinguishing features. Sautéing is a much more vigorous and involved technique than pan-frying because it uses less fat. Sautéing uses smaller cut portions cooked over a higher heat. Its name comes from the French sauté, meaning “to jump.” This refers to the idea that foods cooked this way are often tossed as they cook to prevent sticking and scorching.

Suggested Recipes:

  • Caramelized Onions

  • Poulet Sauté Chausseur

  • Poulet Sauté a la Brettone

  • Asparagus with Oyster Mushroom Ragout
