Chef Melody Stazzone merges her consummate French training and Italian-American heritage to share diverse regional dishes and culinary savvy in the comfort of students’ home kitchens. The dish architect arrives at each student’s abode with equipment in hand to instill knife skills with her professional blades and materialize sauces in the even heat of her pans, all while resolving jealous quarrels between native and visiting spatulas. The scent of roasted chicken excites awaiting taste buds as students learn to truss and season their own bird, then use the savory juices to forge a classic pan sauce in the French tradition, learning knife skills along the way. After conquering main courses, the chef moves on to sweeter subjects, training students to create seasonal desserts with time-honored confectionary techniques such as working with puff pastry for apple tarts, using a pastry bag to decorate cupcakes, and learning to artfully pipe the world’s largest frosting mustache. Finally, newly honed kitchen-hands harness fork and knife to take in the fruit of their culinary labor in the peace of their own dining room.
