I love a good stir fry and they are a great way to use up odds and ends of meat, vegetable and noodles. And let’s face it, they are a quick and easy dinner solution.

One of the take away messages for me as a cooking instructor is that students often need more training in technique than in recipes. Unfortunately, they tend to choose classes based on what recipes will be taught, not on the techniques. Since the teaching of techniques can often be more effective with spoken words and moving picture rather than the printed word and still pictures, I’ve decided to produce some videos that emphasize a variety of kitchen techniques. The complete list of technique videos (currently 11) produced thus far on à la carte is below.
I have to be honest: I am a fan of lists. So the fact that I am making a list of how I would have liked to “be” as a young woman is no surprise. I make a lot of lists. I have a list for my work, for blog posts, things to do around the house, and these Aiming Low posts I write weekly.
