I need to make some tutorials on something I love - so I chose food.
Specifically, seasonings and sauces, because if you can master the concepts behind those, the possibilities for meals you can create for yourself from random ingredients are endless.
I also like the idea of teaching concepts behind things, rather than simply walking people through recipes.
NOT as in "the science of how bechamel sauce gets thickened". More like what goes well together and WHY.
Possibly I'll do an overview of the five "mother sauces" but I also want to include non-western ideas too.
I'm struggling to create a framework to teach this by, because I am far from a master chef yet.
So my question for you is:
If you were to describe the world of "seasonings" or "sauces" to someone, how would you do it?
Please help me out, anything you say will help me see how other people see it! Thank you!
