"I really enjoyed this course. The techniques presented are basic but crucial, starting out with Ms. Perry's emphasis on avoiding cross-contamination and using a instant read thermometer to monitor doneness for every dish. I liked the logical organization of the classes, beginning with boneless chicken breasts and moving up to cooking the whole bird. Techniques are always clearly demonstrated for the viewer (a great thing about Craftsy classes) and I enjoyed the recipes Ms. Perry included: not complicated but with an attention to detail and little touches that really make a difference to the final result."
