Cooking Class - Basic Cooking Series

Classes to get you started in the kitchen.

The basic cooking series consists of Wednesday cooking classes providing you enough information and hands on cooking to get you feeling more comfortable in the kitchen.

We'll talk about setting things up for efficiency and ease of use. We'll try different preparation and cooking techniques so you can figure out what works for you. And we'll make food all along the way so you can gain the confidence needed to start making dinner at home. At the end of the class, we will all sit down and enjoy the meal we prepared.

Was totally a lot fun! We had a great time and ate so much yummy food. The tips on where to get ingredients and the recipes were totally inspiring. Feel like I could replicate the food at home. Will definitely do this again!

Evening was wonderful. Douglas really knew what he was doing and I learned a lot --heard some things I had never heard before about cooking. He was very kind and the food was great. We made a lot of stuff. He gave us his email address and said if we email him he will give us the recipes. Really fun, full evening. Thanks Douglas and thank you to your partner for his friendliness and dish-washing!

I have over 30 years of professional restaurant and cooking experience, ranging from traditional French cuisine to organic vegetarian food. I had the good fortune to study with the founders of the French Laundry for ten years which helped create my philosophy about food. I believe food should be delicious, accessible, and straightforward to create. All my classes are designed to showcase a meal students can go home and create for a dinner party or for friends.
