The Cookworks is designed to enlighten and empower a new generation of viewers to discover the simple joys of cooking. Successful chef/restaurateur Donna Dooher translates her technical expertise with food and love of hospitality into a passionate call for a return to the kitchen.
The Cookworks starts with the basics and demonstrates that the techniques, ingredients, and tools of the kitchen can be presented in a fun and stylish way that entertains and inspires.
Each episode of this new 13-part series features Donna coaching an enthusiastic group of six to eight adult students with a focus on specific ingredients, techniques and tools. Set in a teaching kitchen, students work together on everything from main courses and comfort foods to fish and pastry, enjoying the fruits of their labour when they sit down to test how it all turned out.
