Online and In-Person Cooking Classes

Get ready to improve your skills in the kitchen—online and in-person—and have fun at the same time!

Cooking is More Fun When You Know What You’re Doing

Find yourself watching cooking shows and wish you knew your way around your kitchen? Unsure how to time a meal so that all of your dishes are ready at the same time? Have you switched to a gluten-free or egg-free diet and need someone to show you how to cook the recipes you’ve had your eye on? You can!

If you’re ready to learn how to chop, saute and season your food like a chef, I’m ready to help! I teach online and in-person classes that will help you learn kitchen basics or add a new skill or cooking style to your repertoire.

Personalized Cooking Lessons

Maybe you want to cook a special meal for someone and need help learning how to complete the recipe. Maybe a recent diagnosis requires that you eat differently and that means having to cook for yourself. Or maybe you’re looking to level up your cooking skills so you can increase the variety of the meals you’re preparing. Whatever your goal, I’d love to share my love of cooking with you. I’ll come to your home (in person or virtually) and provide you with a personalized cooking experience.

We’ll work together to develop a menu that fits your goals and dietary preferences and then we’ll cook it together. I will demonstrate techniques for you to try and explain each step. You can ask questions along the way and when we’re finished, you will have gained basic and essential culinary skills needed by any home chef. Plus, you’ll have yummy food to eat!

Pricing: starts at $75 (1 hour session)
