Yesterday, in my post on local food, MK and Patty pointed out that if local eating is really going to take off, people need to know how to cook, and realize cooking isn’t necessarily more time-consuming than cooking from a box.
This got me thinking…what are foods that people could easily make at home, but think they can’t? The idea would be to have a series of cooking classes with the theme “Yes, you can cook it at home.”These things would ideally take no special equipment or hours of prep, and would replicate things that people think they “have to” buy because it’s way too hard to make them at home.
Here are some of my initial ideas:
- Chinese restaurant-style sauces (white, brown, sweet-and-sour, and spicy orange glaze)
- Fish sticks & chicken nuggets
- French fries (oven fries)
What else can you think of?
