Note regarding Covad-19

Due to the Covid-19 health crisis, cooking school will be closed until at least May 25.  Registration for the classes and camps listed below is open but with a new cancellation policy.  If we need to cancel class due to health reasons or if you choose to cancel your participation in a class at any time, a credit will be issued to you. This credit is valid until the end of August, 2021, and can be used for the chef originally signed up, a sibling or a friend. If you prefer a refund, I can issue you one minus the transaction fees.


So many delicious things to cook, so many fun classes for adults and kids in the next few months.  Come join one or join all!   The menu for some classes are set in stone but lobby for your favorite dish for the others.  For each weekday meal series, chefs will be able to vote on what to cook for some of the sessions.  Come join a weekday dinner class or spend the holidays baking up a storm.  Summer is the perfect time to start your young chef in my classes with EZ Peasy Meals for 6-9 year olds.  For those who have tried out all of my summer camps in past years, come join Mexican Fiesta.  It’s new this year!
