In the second season of JOANNE WEIR'S COOKING CLASS, James Beard award-winning cooking teacher, author and chef Joanne Weir shares culinary techniques, tips and fundamentals with her eager students. Each week, from her cozy kitchen, Weir instructs a chef-in-training on equipping the kitchen, preparing Mediterranean-inspired recipes, and selecting complementary wines with the help of noted wine expert Andrea Immer Robinson. During each hands-on cooking lesson, students discover unexpected solutions to real-life problems, including gummy risotto, grainy ice cream, broken emulsions or over-whipped egg whites. At the conclusion of each episode, Weir and her student reflect upon the recipe, discuss key insights, ruminate about their experience and taste the delicious fruits of their labor.
