Article by Rosa Linda Reynoso

Tired of fixing the same old meals? Not sure what spices go together in an appetizer or entre? Or, do you want to learn to prepare simple recipes to share with family and friends?

Del Mar College Continuing Education has scheduled a six-week “Secrets of the Chefs” cooking class scheduled Friday nights beginning March 23 with Chef Israel “Izzy” Villanueva. Chef Izzy, who is a faculty member with the College’s Culinary Arts program, will share basic professional techniques that will bring family and friends running to the dinner table.

These classes are designed for anyone wanting to explore the fundamentals of cooking healthy recipes, sauces, appetizers, hors d’oeuvres and pastas.

Other topics Chef Izzy will cover include safety and sanitation, knife skills, food preparation, measurements and ingredients. Participants are required to wear closed-toe shoes as well as bring a 6-8” chef knife, 3-4” paring knife and a vegetable peeler to each class.

The six classes are scheduled in Room 101 in the College’s Restaurant Management Building on the West Campus (Old Brownsville and Airport Roads). Each “Secrets of the Chefs” class runs from 6 to 9 p.m. on March 23 and 30 and April 6, 13, 20 and 27. Tuition for all six classes is $160.
