Cooking Classes

Home cooking is easy and fun!

Let me come to your kitchen (or to your backyard grill) and show you how to create a few delicious,  healthy, and good looking dishes with very little effort. 

Invite friends and family for an hour or two of tasty learning experience. We'll cook a complete meal while learning about menu planning, ingredient selections, and cooking techniques, and reviewing the recipes and techniques most suitable for your lifestyle and family size. And then we eat!

I bring the recipes, all the tools that we'll need, and the ingredients. Or, let's go to the Farmers Market together!

The classes can be personalized to accommodate your tastes, dietary requirements, number of people in your party, and budget.

Sample Classes


Summer grilling: burgers and beyond. When the weather permits, cook the entire dinner on the grill. Serve grilled meat or fish accompanied with grilled seasonal vegetables; make simple fresh salad; then grill some ripe fruits to top your ice cream.

Weeknight dinner at home. Soups, salads, pastas and quick meat, fish and vegetable dishes that can be ready in minutes.

Homemade stocks and soups. They are the secret behind this homecooked aroma. Tasty,  and economical, too.

Winter comforts: stews and braises. This is slow cooking at it's best: the dish mostly cooks itself, with very little help from the cook.

From market to table: following the seasons. Want to eat local, organic, and seasonal foods? Check out what's good at the Farmers Market. And know what to make with it.

Festive paella. Spanish classic that is fun to make indoors or out, looks impressive, and adapts easily to your tastes and available ingredients.

Sunday morning: healthy happy meals to start the day. Sunny omelets, healthy fruit salads, and, of course, blinis.

Impress you date: easy fine dinner for two. No need to sweat  to impress that special someone.  Three  (well, maybe five) ingredient dishes can be delicious, beautiful, and romantic enough to enjoy by the fireplace while everybody else waits in line outside restaurants for Valentine 's dinner.
