Chef Yankel Polak

teaches cooking meat

class description

So you think you know how to make the perfect steak, eh?! Well Chef Yankel, our meatologist, has got a thing or two teach you anyway. This class will cover how to prepare the perfect steak, braising and roasting, grilling with live fire, and an intro to the art of smoking meat, all while discovering the fundamentals of preparing and cooking any cut of beef. You’ll learn how to prepare larger cuts of meat in a variety of styles, from pot roast to braised brisket, and to understand how to recognize where each cut comes from, why it matters and how to use that knowledge to inform your cooking choices. The class will also cover live fire cooking, from choosing a grill and fuel source, to managing your fire, to grilling multiple items at one, and will include a bonus intro to the art of smoking meats.

Teaches Music Through Cinema

class description

This class will use cinema as a vehicle for understanding music and will bring to life the magical touch that music adds to your favorite movie scenes. The class will explore how music theory and its elements (pitch, rhythm and musical form) work together to create specific moods that are required for a cinematic scene. In this course we will cover the basics of learning how to read music and understand how music is organized using time signature and meter. We will then dive into your favorite cinematic scenes and explore how these elements of music theory are used. We will analyze and discuss the effectiveness of the music in the scenes using the knowledge we have gained in the class. Your experience of listening to music will never be the same after this course. No knowledge of music theory is necessary for this course. All you need is to do is listen with an open mind.
