World cuisines made simple by Burr Ridge cooking instructor

Samira Shahzad says she has the art of cooking down to a science. The Burr Ridge resident spends part of the year in her native Pakistan, where she’s taught the cuisines of five continents — from continental to Chinese to fine dining — for 26 years, following her own studies with noted chefs. She designed her suburban home to include an elegant, custom-built cooking studio exclusively for group classes and gatherings for women. To introduce her demonstration courses, the first class is free. What’s your teaching approach? My aim for my students is that their amount of time in the kitchen is the least possible, while the results are ultra professional. And I believe I’ve achieved that. You can make wonderful food without any stress, and enjoy the process. It brings families together. And my recipes are foolproof. (You get the) same results every time. Where do you start? The most important thing I teach students is how to organize their kitchen. How to use the freshest and most natural ingredients, and how to organize them so that it doesn’t take time. Time is something that nobody has enough of. Once they’re organized, it hardly takes any time at all to make things of gourmet quality. One of your time-saving tips is freezing some of the key ingredients? Take fresh ginger, peel it, and in the food processor coarsely chop it. Put small bags in the freezer. (To use it,) smash it a little. (The labor) is done for the next three months. I get the freshest ingredients without the hassle of making it again and again. That’s what I do with green chilies, garlic, lemon juice, homemade chicken broth. I get the most important ingredients without any preservatives or chemicals. You have them at your fingertips. Another tip? All the ingredients I use, like the spices, I don’t use (finely) ground, but a little coarse. And don’t over crush the garlic or ginger or green chilies. That gives you more flavor, and keeps it from becoming overpowering. You teach a variety of ethnic cuisines including Thai and Chinese, and share related information. The food is a kind of fusion. I teach history, geography, time management; what you can prepare 36 hours in advance; what you can freeze, and what you can’t. You actually guarantee your teaching. I’ve perfected it to a point where I give guaranteed results for anybody, anywhere in the world. They can attend the same class again for free if they’re not able to make anything. Nobody has ever taken me up on the offer in 26 years. You also teach a range of calorie-burning recipes, fitness-oriented menus and fruit smoothies. There’s tons of food you can do within 200 calories. I’m a health junkie.
