Cooking a Thanksgiving meal is a big responsibility. Many people think carefully about exactly what they plan to serve for all of their guests. If you are going to hold Thanksgiving at your home, it can be useful to brush up your skills before you begin. We at Foodinis offer cooking classes which can help you prepare for the big event. Over our many years in food service, we’ve learned a few tricks of the trade. One of the most important things we’ve learned is that proper preparation is essential before you begin:
Creating a Menu
Creating a Thanksgiving menu requires a lot of advanced preparation. You’ll probably be serving turkey. You also want to closely think about what else you’re going to serve. You might want to serve something your vegetarian friends like so they can have a main course of their own. You’ll also want to plan out the side dishes carefully and the kind of desserts that work for your feast. Our skilled, trained chefs can help you discover a menu that works for the party you have in mind this season.
Preparing Large Meals
Many people cook for their families. They make breakfasts, lunches and dinners. However, cooking for a large crowd is another matter. Cooking for twenty people is entirely different than cooking for your immediate family. You’ll need to handle larger quantities of food. You also need to measure precisely, work with specific cooking times so that nothing gets overcooked or undercooked and figure out how to bring it all out for the meal. Our caterers can show you exactly how to make a great meal for as many people as you want.
Updating the Classics
Serving the same thing every single Thanksgiving is a tradition many people embrace. From your cousin’s cranberry sauce to green bean casserole, it’s all delicious. At the same time, they look for ways to think about how to update things for modern tastes. When you work with our private cooking classes, you’ll see how to take your favorites and make them new again. We can show you how to take the dishes you love and make them taste even better. We can also show you how to surprise and delight your guests with new flavors you just know they’ll really love.
Getting any Thanksgiving dinner off the ground takes a lot of preparation before the big day. Our staffers can show you how to get this done quickly and easily. We’ll demonstrate tricks of the trade that professional chefs use to get things done in short order. With our help, you can learn how to do things such as chop vegetables, set up your house and get small tasks done first. The result is a celebration that easier on you and allows you to have fun with your cherished guests.
