Friendly instructors tap lifelong culinary passions to teach students of all skill levels the techniques and know-how necessary to create fast, fresh, and healthy meals at home. Classes eschew the long-term commitment and unintelligible Muppet-Swedish of traditional cooking schools, instead structuring each course to provide every tool, recipe, and procedure of the chosen culinary style in a single session. Groups of up to 20 students sidle up to prep stations in an inviting, casual kitchen, following the teacher’s articulate instructions as they slice, sprinkle, and sauté a bounty of fresh ingredients and glean lessons about nutrition and practical cooking technique. Beginners and seasoned chefs alike learn to forge international dishes in classes such as Perfect Paella and “Banh Mi in a Pinch”, whereas the Fast, Fresh & Fit Dinner course teaches busy families to make speedy yet nutritious fare for evenings full of soccer practice, ballet lessons, and peewee accounting courses. Once class comes to a close, each newly sharpened chef sits down to a handmade meal, partaking of the fruits of their labor and socializing with new friends.
Though classes are offered year-round, the calendar only lists those taking place through November at this time. Classes through December and on will be added soon.
