Chef Jared taught me how to make a creamy mushroom soup using two kinds of mushrooms and a mire a poix. It was a quick easy soup to warm the bones this winter. He demonstrated how to chop all of the ingredients so they are the same size and cook evenly. When he was finished he garnished the soup beautifully. It looked like a fine dining presentation. He also is super friendly and personable. I enjoyed my time learning with Chef Jared.
