Make globally-inspired stews your family will crave, with guidance from expert instructor and seasoned recipe developer Matthew Card. Get started with a savory Italian pork ragù. Learn how to sauté a traditional soffritto base and braise your ragù for incredibly rich flavor. Next, bring the heat with Mexican chile verde! Create a broiled tomatillo-onion-and-pepper flavor base and serve the finished stew with warm tortillas for rave reviews. Moving on, French lamb navarin is made easy with Matthew’s tips for creating a mirepoix stew base and cooking the stew vegetables separately. Then, create smoky a Spanish chickpea-and-chorizo stew and an expertly seasoned Moroccan chicken tagine, made in a Dutch oven. Prepare a fragrant meatless lentil stew packed with olives, preserved lemons and pomegranate molasses that evokes the flavors of the Middle East, and then finish your class with a classic Cajun shrimp gumbo.
