August Classes!


I have updated my class schedule through August. More will be coming soon!

My kids class this month is a family class – kids can come alone or with a parent! This is the perfect meal to cook together for a family evening at home (especially a family movie night!).  See details here.

Adult classes this month include a Meatless Monday, vegetarian class and a Summer Dinner Party class. Click through for details on each class.

Spots Open for 13-17 year old Cooks!

I have a few more spots of THIS Thursday-Friday 9:30-12:00 cooking camp.

We will be going over how to plan a meal, pick the perfect ingredients and whip up a healthy, delicious meal that everyone will love! On day two, students will be planning, shopping and cooking up the meal and serving them to the guest of their choice!

This is a great camp for students looking to spread their wings a bit with cooking.
