pop-up classes: we bring the food (and fun) to you!

Learn to cook, with friends, at home. (And you don’t even have to clean up after.)

Here’s how it works: gather a group of up to ten friends, co-workers and family members, and we (that’s me, and my talented chef-y colleagues) will bring a program—including food, supplies and everything you need to prepare a beautiful meal—to your home.

Classes include fundamental knife skills and cooking techniques, nutrition highlights, recipe handouts and hands-on guidance. You’ll slice and dice, whisk and stir, saute and bake, and eat your creations. We’ll help you all along the way, and then clean up the mess.

Choose from the following most-popular topics, or ask us for other options. Don’t see one you like? Design your own—whatever your little foodie heart desires. Tell us what you’d like, and we’ll make it happen.
