November 2014


Almost every day I get a call… or an email… or talk with a family member, friend, or acquaintance regarding some issue about cooking.  Although there are many cooks and chefs out there and everything seems to be about food…there are many that don’t have basic knowledge of cooking or just need to refine cooking skills.


This is your invitation to join me…in my personal kitchen…for private instruction…with a custom class or workshop…for you and your friends.  You will learn to prepare the food in a hands-on class and then enjoy the food you have prepared right at my table.


This will not be a class where you listen and watch while someone else prepares the food…or a class where you learn to prepare just one or two recipes and nothing else…or a class that you would have to share with large groups with minimal hands-on experience and teaching.


These classes will be custom designed to suit your needs…where you will learn many tips and tricks that will be useful in any kitchen endeavor…in a very private setting with as much attention as it takes for you learn and feel comfortable in your own kitchen.  They can be a small group if you would like a few friends to share your class or they can be one-on-one.


These classes would also be a fun date night, a special gift for a new bride, a party for bridesmaids or a kitchen shower, or a fun activity for kids during the summer or weekend.  The possibilities are endless…just tell me what you want and together we will customize a class or workshop to fit your needs and schedule.

Some ideas for you to consider would be:

Cooking for Kids

Designed for kids who want to learn to cook…let me take the time to teach your kids their way around the kitchen.  They will learn safety rules in the kitchen and how to prepare some basic foods that are kid-friendly while also being healthy!  This hands-on class will be fun for the kids while they learn to make their own pizza, hamburgers and healthy fries, spaghetti with salad and garlic bread, cookies and Brownies.
