Ever wonder how to make the perfect flakey or mealy pie doughs? To cook up a Tunisian brik or Moroccan tagine? Or the best way to make a tamale? You are in luck, because sister site Epicurious has joined forces with the renowned Culinary Institute of America to show you how to do this and more. The Epicurious Online Cooking School launched this week, is a virtual cooking school taught by master instructors from the CIA. First up–the cuisine of Mexico. Through four hours of video instruction, broken up into 8 classes, plus 19 recipes from CIA’s curriculum, you can learn how to make authentic moles, ceviches, salsas, tamales, rice and beans, beef, pork, and seafood, all for just $49. You can take the class on your computer, tablet or smartphone, and start and stop, all while being in the comfort of your own home. And, best of all, thanks to Citibank, you can take the first class for free!
