The Stocked Pot and Company’s calendar of chef-taught classes caters to all experience levels and epicurean desires. During the sushi-making course, students learn to make rice cling to veggies without the use of edible magnets, rolling creations such as futomaki and nigiri with cooked and raw fish. Pupils savor the hand-rolled fruits of their labor filled with crab, avocado, and smoked salmon and round out the post-lesson meal with miso soup and a salad with ginger dressing. A take-home kit with a mat, rice paddle, and chopsticks keeps students practiced and on their toes better than glue-tipped ballet shoes.
The knife-techniques class, Stocked Pot’s most popular course, requires participants to bring their dullest knife so they can learn sharpening strategies. The lesson will also cover methods on how to maintain their blade’s edge, including proper storage and performance-enhancing whetstones. Instructors demonstrate the best use for a spectrum of blades, as students follow by chopping up a variety of veggies for a stew that classes enjoy at the end of the session.
The Stocked Pot and Company
While not managing multiple restaurants, The Stocked Pot and Company Executive Chef Don McMillan has cultivated local TV stardom by hosting a cooking show on NBC from 1986 to 2002. He later appeared on channels as diverse as Hallmark and Sundance, and Turner South and Fox Sports South, with celebrities including Dave Chappelle and Maya Angelou. His son, President, owner, and on-staff wine expert, Andrew, has acquired culinary knowledge from his travels to five continents and more than 28 countries, which steeped him in local traditions, authentic ingredients, and large cauldrons of curry. The Stocked Pot's chef-taught classes cater to all ages, experience levels, and epicurean desires. Aspiring chefs can learn to roll and construct creative sushi, properly wield a knife, or cook poultry. Printed recipes, which can be taken home, help students follow along and finally learn how to spell hors d'oeuvres. A retail store stocks tools to further aid in personal kitchens.
