Learn to Cook in My Kitchen – Summer 2014

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Kat teaching cookingDid you read “The Kitchen Counter Cooking School” and wish you were among the volunteers? Well, here’s your chance.

Come build your kitchen confidence in a rare opportunity to take classes right at my very own kitchen counter. I will be offering a handful of classes this summer that will be videotaped and photographed so that others can be taught the same skills online. The live classes will be limited in class size — only six to eight students per class. Don’t miss this fun opportunity.

Cost: $85 per class
Each class runs approximately 3 1/2 hours. Includes hands-on lesson, wine and dinner or lunch which you’ll help prepare, plus a take-home booklet of recipes. Please note: each student will be required to sign a simple media waiver as classes may be videotaped and photographed.

Class descriptions below. Recipes or specific skills are subject to change, but you’ll get the general idea. All classes can be purchased via Brown Paper Tickets by clicking on the dates or links below. Hurry, these few spots won’t last long!
