Private or Semi-Private Cooking Classes
Get together with several of your friends for a class at home! Enjoy an afternoon or evening of cooking instruction, watch the food being prepared as I explain the techniques, and dine on a delicious meal of your choosing. My three-hour classes can be designed for any level, from those with little or no experience to those who are very comfortable in the kitchen. There is something for everyone to learn.
You can select from my menus, which change with the seasons, or we can put together a special menu based on your desires. Depending upon the dishes and techniques, some hands-on practice is possible.
