Classes

cooking with kids

I’m proud to offer private cooking parties for kids of all ages. Perfect for birthday parties or any other occasion, your children will have the opportunity to explore high-quality ingredients and prepare delicious, seasonally-based menus. I design classes specifically for your kids’ age, experience and interests. Classes are held in your kitchen, so no need to trek around the city. Sample classes include:

IMG_4970The Yummy Library – See your child’s favorite literary characters come to life in new – and delicious – ways with recipes inspired by their favorite stories including The Very Hungry CaterpillarGreen Eggs and Ham and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs.
Color Me Hungry – Healthy foods can taste – and look – great.  We’ll focus on your child’s favorite color to put together a delicious, nutritious and attractive plate where nothing is artificial and everything is the same shade of fun!
The Dessert Lab – Science has never tasted so good as we experiment with the best of the gooiest and chewiest to find out how chocolate melts, why cakes rise and what makes whipped cream so fluffy.
Tasty Travels – We’ll pick a spot on the map and focus on the local cuisine, introducing your child to exciting new flavors and fresh ways to look at foods that may already be on his or her favorite menu.

Cooking Classes

Kids don’t get to have all the fun! I offer classes for adults, too, where we’ll create restaurant quality, feel-good meals together in your own kitchen. I’ll do the shopping and planning, customize the menu based on your goals and skill level, and provide you with your own recipes. If you like, I can even assess your pantry inventory and kitchen equipment and help you curate the best staples and products to create simple, satisfying meals in a snap.

COOKING PARTIES

There’s a reason parties always begin and end in the kitchen: that’s where the fun is! My private cooking parties bring people together over food and offer your family, friends or professional colleagues an opportunity to have fun with a dash of learning added to the pot. Your guests will learn useful cooking skills while making a tasty meal and building memories that will last long after the last bite of dessert and last sip of wine is gone. From fresh pasta 101 to tacos with a twist, I can customize a menu to fit your needs and likes and structure it either as a hands-on class or a demonstration activity. Whether you’re a corporation looking for a team-building activity or you have a special occasion to celebrate with family and friends, it doesn’t get any better than cooking and eating together.
