group cooking classes


Let's make a night of it. You will invite your guests. Together we will plan the menu and theme for the night. Then we will plan our shopping and prep list. I will do the shopping and arrive prior to your guests. Together we will set the table and decor for their arrival. Once they arrive, the fun begins. I will give a cooking demonstration and together we will prepare our menu for the evening. Now we eat! All of your guests will be given a copy of the menu, and recipes to take home.

private cooking classes


Not into group events... No problem. I offer private cooking classes as well. These can be tailored to meet your needs. From learning the basics to stepping up your game. 

Have a kid or know a kid who can't stop watching Food Network... Give them the gift of a private lesson. We will learn food safety and proper use of kitchen tools. Together we will prepare something delicious.
