Culinary Explorers

"My all-time favorite question was from a woman reading my 'Any Bean Hummus' recipe. She asked which bean she should use…"

That question was asked of Chris Fisk, whose company, Culinary Explorers, has the mission of getting you to cook more at home and make it fun. These days, that could be called making a virtue out of necessity.

And to that end, Ms. Fisk has added a new class: Cooking on a Shoestring. She'll get you and your kitchen into fighting form, covering basic techniques and turning some larder essentials into delicious meals. It's a four-hour affair, costs $275, and should clear up any confusion about which bean to use in Any Bean Hummus.
