WHAT TO EXPECT
I will arrive thirty to forty five minutes before the private class begins, at which point I will set up the kitchen with a station for each recipe. All the ingredients will be arranged according to the recipe and your friends will arrive with their enthusiasm and appetite. They will be briefed on the menu and a short demo will be done for important cooking techniques.
My private cooking lessons include an extensive repertoire of cusines ranging from Thai to Tuscan. The class is organized to work with the standard household kitchen. If there is an unusual kitchen tool needed, I will bring it with me, along with tips on where to buy the item.
Many students take private cooking classes as part of a series where we expand on cooking techniques which increases their confidence in the kitchen as well as providing tips on effortless entertaining.
All levels of experience are welcome, and there is always a feast to enjoy at the end. You will go home with a set of recipes and a new confidence in your cooking abilities. Please contact me with further questions or to signup for a private class.
