In two- to three-hour cooking classes, Zoom Zoom Catering’s skilled foodsmiths dispense culinary knowledge gleaned from dishing eats to parties of up to 700 people. During adult classes, up to 16 students sip beverages brought from home as experienced instructors teach students to prepare up to three dishes using the same ingredient, doling out helpful tips and tricks for cooking as economical as Suze Orman’s favorite skillet. Pupils study up on a rotating slate of topics that includes lessons in crafting appetizers, sauces, and unique and delectable ethnic foods. Additionally, Zoom Zoom serves up ideas for creating event decorations from items found around the yard, equipping students with the skills to finally put homegrown flowers and ominously glowing prehistoric totems to good use.
With lessons limited to a max of 10 students, kids’ classes stock tots’ noggins with a wealth of handy kitchen-helping how-tos, as they learn how to read a recipe, cook such simple dishes as pizza or muffins, and decorate cupcakes. Teens receive more hands-on instruction in 15-student classes, learning such subjects as how to craft a complete meal or a toothsome dessert, how to work with puff pastries, and how to make an mp3 player out of filo dough.

About Zoom Zoom Catering
Amid the brightly colored walls and chopping sounds of Zoom Zoom Catering, chefs cut and sauté fresh, local produce that’s acquired at farmers’ markets whenever possible. With that green, mostly organic bounty, they whip up catering-menu trays of salads and sandwiches designed to feed groups of up to 700. The chefs also work with clients to create custom menus for weddings or authentic Middle Earth–themed luncheons. Groups of children or adults are also invited to join chefs in the kitchen for cooking classes–which range from making pasta to barbecuing–and include practical guidance on the economics and nutrition of buying fresh produce.
