Whether you have been cooking for years or just learning how to boil water a personal cooking class is the perfect and endless way to expand your knowledge in the kitchen. Learning new and flavorful techniques does not have to be frightening.  In fact, adding new recipes and cuisines to your present cooking repertoire can be quite simple; which in turn, makes your kitchen life leisurely and effortless. Personal instruction allows you to custom tailor your lesson plans and each class is done on your schedule. Students are provided with a short questionnaire; consequently, lesson plans and menus are then formulated based on the student’s response. Essential topics have included "Easy-Breezy Dinners", Food Fun With Kids, Whole Grain Baking and the ever popular and resourceful two-hour Knife Skills Class (the most important tool and talent in the kitchen). With a user-friendly approach, a personal cooking lesson can restore and prepare your pantry with the necessary items for your culinary adventures and best of all you learn to use and maximize your kitchen space. Each class is a hands-on experience where you are immersed in all things food; not to mention fun, after all cooking and eating are cause for celebration. Each cook is as good as their ingredients and a cooking class can also include an educational tour of your local market so that you know exactly what to buy and where to find it; and, recipes of all the materials covered are provided. Discover the tools and ingredients that will enrich your meals. A scrumptious feast from the kitchen to the table is within your reach!
