What You’ll Learn


Menu Planning

In this lesson, I’ll give you some great ideas for menu items that do really well when served at room temperature.


The Party Planning Process

The key here is planning! If you plan, you’ll have so much more fun when you entertain. It’s all about being prepared. I’ll go over my professional tried and true steps to plannin...

Prepping and Cooking the Meal


Preparing the Salmon

Let’s prepare the salmon to be brined in salt water. We’ll trim it and skim it for any bones.


Brining the Salmon

Brining is so simple and makes such a huge difference in the way the fish tastes that it’s totally worth it! I’ll show you the steps here all the way from making the brine to actually b...


Baking the Salmon

After the fish has brined, we will bake it. This is truly the most simple step! Not much else to do except to dry the fish and put it on a sheet tray in the oven.


Preparing the Parsnips and Potatoes

These root vegetables are going to take the longest, so we’ll focus here next. The parsnips will be for the salad and the potatoes will be for the potato salad.


Salad Dressing and Blanching Vegetables

The salad dressing has only a few ingredients so we can knock that out here and then blanch and shock the vegetables for the burrata veggie dish.


Roasting Parsnips and Cutting Fennel

Even cooking is key to getting perfectly cooked vegetables - nothing is burnt or too crunchy. We’ll roast parsnips and then work on cutting fennel for the burrata veggie dish.


Potatoes and Marinated Vegetables

I’ll show you how to test potatoes so that they are perfectly cooked for a potato salad. Then, we’ll finish up the vegetables for the burrata veggie dish.


Preparing the Kale and Dressing

Kale gets a bad rap! I will show you how to soften it without having to massage it. Then, we’ll make a dressing that will make yes, even kale, taste good!


Potato Salad Dressing and Seasoning

We’ll whip up a quick dressing for the potato salad with all the good things like mustard and vinegar and of course olive oil. Then, we’ll dress the potatoes in the dressing and adjust ...


Preparing the Chimichurri

Chimichurri is the national condiment of Argentina! It’s a very flavorful and healthy sauce, so make extra because it will be great over steak or chicken throughout the week too! It’s a...


Bread and Final Prep Finish

Last step here is to slice the bread for tomorrow for the toast in the burrata veggie dish and put all of our prepped and cooked food away and clean up! The heavy lifting is officially done.

Plating Up


Assembling the Platters

It is time to pull out the serving platters and see which dishes will go on which platters, so you aren’t scrambling last minute. Pull out serving utensils as well! Then, I’ll walk you ...


Assembling the Marinated Vegetable Burrata Dish

This is the only “cooking” you are going to do today! Toast. That’s it! We’ll season and start to assemble the marinated vegetables on a platter. This dish is going to be go...


Finishing the Marinated Vegetable Burrata Dish

We’ll take the dish to completion here by arranging the toast and pulling the burrata ball and strategically placing it for maximum cheesiness.


Plating Salmon with Chimichurri

Plating the salmon in a whole filet can be tricky, but it’s all in your head! I will give you the confidence to do it. Then lastly, we’ll sauce the salmon with chimichurri and that will...

Building the Charcuterie Board


Charcuterie Board Overview

I will show you how to select all of the ingredients for your board, so there is enough variety.



I always prefer soft bread with cured meats (crackers with cheese are lovely but tend to be too hard for charcuterie, in my opinion). The shape and thickness of the bread are very important, so tun...


Plumping Figs and Assembling Prosciutto-Wrapped Melon

I’ll show you how to revive dried fruit, and we’ll make some very simple prosciutto-wrapped melon bites that you could even serve as a separate appetizer. Still, they add complexity to ...


Arranging the Meats

Since the charcuterie is the focus, let’s start there and arrange the meats first. Everything else will follow, and the different meats will help determine which sauces or accouterments we pl...


Garnishing Accoutrements

Now, we’ll focus on the second largest items like fruits and vegetables.


Finishing the Board

Everything is coming together here, and we are just adding garnishes and finishing touches.

Dessert Board Overview


Dessert Board Overview

A dessert board is such a fantastic way to make store-bought components of cookies, fruit, chocolate, and cream look (and taste) like a masterpiece! I’ll go over everything you need in this v...


Positioning the Ingredients on the Board

Let’s work from largest to smallest. If you are serving cream, that has to go in bowls, so we’ll start by placing those first and then move to cookies and chocolate (second largest).


Adding the Finishing Touches

Lastly, we’ll bring in the smaller things like fruit (or nuts or edible flowers) to fill in all the nooks and crannies. You are going to love how this looks!
