Lauren Lane Cooking Classes Kansas City

Cooking Classes:

I like to keep cooking classes small and they usually last about 3 hours long. 

The classes start with a signature cocktail as we get to know each other and outline the class.  We cook 4-5 courses or dishes and then enjoy a full serving of each.  Most classes lean more into the demonstration style with a lot of Q&A. However, pasta and ricotta making classes are always hands-on and include a fabulous dinner to enjoy afterwards.

I focus on simplified cooking techniques using tried and true recipes. I explain how to prep recipes in advance so they can be made easily for effortless dinner parties. I also include healthy hacks along the way.  You leave the class with all the recipes and tips, a full belly, a big smile and a dinner party you can recreate for your friends and family. 

I offer scheduled classes from time to time, but normally clients reach out to create a customized class and meal to suit their needs. These classes are perfect for girls night out, birthday parties, anniversaries, family night, date night or any occasion! Inquire about my small team building opportunities.  

I also offer private classes upon request.  These classes are completely hands-on and offer in-depth teaching on cooking techniques, knife skills, prepping and tips and tricks that will have you cooking like a pro. The private classes can are customized to what the customer would like to master. A series of classes are also available for those wanting to go even deeper in the culinary world. I’d love to work with you to create the perfect class(s).

Life happens – I get it!  Things come up…but darn it anyway!

If you do have to cancel for any reason, I will SO miss you … but know that I will gladly refund your class fee, as long as your request is made more than 5 calendar days (the "Cancellation Date") prior to the class date (10 days for groups of 6 or more). Please note that such 5 day period includes the scheduled date of the class.  For example, if your class is scheduled for the evening of January 10th you would need to cancel with me by 11:59 pm on January 5th.  Wanna know the reason behind the 5 day cancellation policy?  It’s because I take a lot love and time to design, plan, prepare and purchase everything needed to create an amazing experience for you!

If it’s too late to cancel with a refund, then, find someone to come in your place!  (Hmmm….who do I owe a favor for feeding my pup when I was out of town?  Who could use a little unexpected good love in their lives? )

Also, I reserve the right to cancel a class but in that rare case  (like it’s never happened) you will, of course, be offered the choice of a full refund or class credit to take a different class.  Whichever you prefer. more of this stuff…lets talk food and fun...back to the classes:)
