For eight years, chef and culinary instructor Deb Cazavilan has been unlocking the secrets to good cooking inside her studio kitchen at Wooden Spoons Workshops and Cooking Classes, which has been featured in the Des Moines Register. Check the calendar for a class that features your favorite fare, which could be sushi, sauces, pies, breads, paella, curry, or canned artisan preserves. In a hands-on Potpie workshop ($65), students learn to make the ultimate comfort food from scratch. Deb reveals the secrets of tender, ultra-flaky pastry and luscious fillings such as sirloin steak and potato, chicken mornay, and thanksgiving dinner. Then after class, you can take your homemade, family-size potpie home to feed your brood or keep an empty lazy Susan company.
Wooden Spoons Workshops and Cooking Classes
Deb Cazavilan loves teaching people how to cook so much that she even found a way to reflect it in her company's domain name, www.CanYouBakeaCherryPie.com. She discovered this passion for sharing her craft while working as a chef in her former restaurant, The Little Blue House, where she started hosting cooking lessons in the kitchen. That grew into Wooden Spoons Workshops and Cooking Classes, and today, Deb welcomes aspiring chefs to her studio kitchen for hands-on classes covering topics from artisan pizzas and holiday pies to paella and gluten-free cookies. She may even share a pointer for making her blue-ribbon-winning Ankeny mudslide pie. Hint: she uses chocolate, not mud and slides from a science department's old projector room.
