  • Sushi by Simon
    A recurring guest on Martha Stewart Living radio, Simon Feil has not only been a self-described "chef by osmosis his entire life," but an actor and educator who shares his passion with amateur cooks. Feil and his team of chefs teach prospective sushi rollers to craft their own maki in group classes, private lessons, and sometimes even at students’ homes. Whether they're teaching individuals or corporate clients, chefs guide their charges through each step to creating platefuls of savory seafood. The variety of classes—which even includes a lesson geared toward pregnant sushi fans—encompasses many different levels of cooking experience and fish-whispering ability. Gift baskets, available for an additional fee, help outfit customers with their own maki-making gear.

  • CakeMade
    Although CakeMade courses bill themselves as lessons on decorating cakes, each one actually covers multiple disciplines, from buttercream to fondant. These topics teach students how to construct breathtaking cakes, including cakes with sugar flowers, whimsical cake toppers, and ruffle cakes. Classes are taught by instructors that are handpicked not just for their skill, but for their ability to teach those skills to you. They include one deemed The Food Network's Cake Challenge champion and one who won one of TLC’s Ultimate Cake Off competitions. Whatever they’re demonstrating— whether creating sugar flowers; working with fondant; teaching buttercream piping techniques; or using modeling chocolate — you have the best seat in the house. Classes can be shown on any device with Internet streaming capabilities, and students can pause or rewind them at any time to better understand a procedure. CakeMade also connects its clients with the instructors if they have questions, and it hosts forums where people can share photos of their edible masterpieces.

  • French'Encas
    Simon Herfray, a French native hailing from the Vendée region, is a master's-degree-certified pastry chef and baker. He's whisked and sculpted fine treats for esteemed establishments in the London and New York culinary scenes—Aubaine and Bluebird in South Kensington, Falai and Café M Studio in Manhattan, and Bacchus Bistro and La Défense Bistro in Brooklyn. At French'Encas, Simon directs his world-class sweetmeat techniques toward kitchens full of apron-wearing students and in-disguise dentists. Whether it's their first or hundredth time gripping pastry bags and whisks, attendees handcraft their very own macarons, chocolate-lemon tarts, chocolate fondant, and full quiche lorraine meals. Some classes cater to advanced students, some cover basics, and others suit all skill levels. And when not instructing students, Simon and his team whip up treats for parties and other events.
