Teens at Whisk After School – Fend For Yourself – Pasta


Classes are designed for students 13 years old and up!

The Fend for Yourself classes with Chef Barbara Sowatsky,  are technique-driven classes designed to teach you to feed yourself, family or roommates too.  Depending on the class you’ll learn basic sauces, knife skills along with how to adapt master recipes to produce nourishing meals that are uniquely your own.  Based on five ingredient categories – eggs, ground meats,  dough, pasta and chicken – we’ll pass along invaluable tips on shopping, food storage and using leftovers. Every day we will create multiple recipes using the “Ingredient of the Day”.  Each class will provide essential skills to feed yourself real food for less than the price of a take-out pizza!

October 14th from  2 – 4PM


This pantry staple is the base for many future meals.  You will learn how to make a quick fresh Pasta , learn about the different pasta shapes and which sauces to serve with them, what cooking “al dente” is and how to make a classic roux sauce:
