Cooking Class - Stone Fired Pizza

Learn how to make authentic pizza in a stone-fired pizza oven with Chef Tess.

In this interactive, hands-on cooking class, experience the magic of hand-tossing and baking rustic pizza with Chef Tess.

Begin with an appetizer meant for sharing as you prepare the pizzas: Tomato-chile jam with burrata and toast. You'll select your own herbs and cook with them as you create a dynamic spread of pizza ranging from a creamy butternut squash and pancetta pizza to a fragrant roasted garlic and Italian sausage pie. Finish off the evening with a sweet balsamic reduction over tart fresh berries.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

We had a good experience with Chef Tess. She was entertaining as well as knowledgeable and a good teacher. The class was hands on for everyone in the group, and the food was good. We learned useful techniques and nuances to everyday cooking tasks in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Recommended.

Great experience !! We all learned so much and had fun doing it. Tess and her husband were very knowledgeable - our group had all levels of expertise and we all left with new techniques to try. We had a BD party the next day and made 15 individual pizzas and everyone raved about how great they tasted-Thanks Chef Tess

I signed up for this class with my mom for mothers day. We have done cooking classes in the past but this was our first cozy meal class. The experience was awesome. We made pizza outside and was able to collect fresh herbs from the garden. Chef Tess was really nice and we learned some tips for making pizza in the future. The atmosphere was relaxed and perfect. We would sign up again.
