I have a new, fabulous website feature with a class calendar!  This will make it easier to find a class and register all on one page. Classes are posted through June, so plan ahead. In celebration of my new website (Thanks Bill!) I am running a special for the next 10 days!

Buy three classes, get one free! Buy three for yourself, your kiddos or with a group of friends and get the fourth free.

Perfect Pizza Class – rescheduled!


It has been years since Portland has been socked in with an awesome snowstorm! I am thrilled to have a chance to play in the snow with my family, but I was very disappointed to cancel this morning’s pizza making class.

Never fear! I am rescheduling the class for February 22nd!

Pizza from Scratch for Young Chefs – This isn’t just any pizza! We will be making the dough, sauce and CHEESE from scratch! We will explore traditional and unique toppings and flavor combinations. Then we will bake up the perfect pizza to enjoy together (and of course, bake up something sweet to finish up our meal!)

Who: Young Chefs ages 9+ (10 spots available)
When: Saturday, February 22nd, 9:30-12:00


I will be switching up the Tasty Thai class. Check back soon for more classes. I hope everyone is warm and safe!
