Culinary Classes

Contact me if you’d like to have a custom curriculum designed for your food and eating goals and mindful lifestyle! I will develop a unique plan that fits your schedule, working with you in your home kitchen to set you up a system for making healthy foods that meet your goals, are easy to make and delicious to eat. All cooking classes include the following:

  • instruction in your own kitchen at home
  • ingredients shopping lists, how to select and where to find top ingredients
  • printed recipe cards – either paper or digital – your choice
  • online resources for further reading
  • hands-on workshop style learning: knife skills and professional shortcuts
  • sampling delicious creations and sharing your tasting notes at the end!
  • expanding your at-home healthy food repertoire
  • how to plan weekly menus for quick and easy meals

Here are a few class series I have customized for clients in the past:
