WHAT/WHO?   Each of our cooking classes and homeschool cooking classes offer participants individualized attention in a cozy home environment from a professional and caring Culinary and Life Skills coach.  Our cooking classes are for a variety of ages starting with middle/high school teens 13+, young adults, and adults too!  We are completely hands-on.  All participants learn about weights, measures, ingredients and their uses, how to interpret and follow a recipe, use a full range of utensils and tools, cooking skills, knife skills, table setting, kitchen safety 101, small appliances, ovens, electric and gas cook tops, and much more.  

HOW?  Participants learn culinary and organizational life skills essential for navigating the kitchen and for future independent living.  Each cooking class and/or workshop has a specific theme with intentional concepts and skills.  The curriculum is mindfully and purposefully designed for learning in the home kitchen. Our teaching method is based in positive terms, praise and encouragement.  We express what participants need to do rather than focusing on what not to do.  Because curriculum is hands-on our class size is limited to four-six students/session.
