Cooking Classes/     Private Dinner Parties

I would love to work with you to plan the perfect cooking class or private dinner event!

I offer group and private cooking classes.  My group classes are small intimate and instructional…and are perfect for all levels.  They are held in my relaxed open and comfy kitchen and are different in that you definitely learn lots, but you make new friends or gather with old, laugh a ton and eat a wonderful 4-5 course meal along the way!
