Cooking classes: Winter 2017/2018

Our mission: to share our passion for cooking meals at home with easy, authentic and delicious recipes, and fresh ingredients. We believe everyone can cook a great meal, and these classes will help you do just that.

We had a couple of fun holiday cooking classes. Now, warm up your winter with new cooking ideas! Full details about classes are at the bottom of the page.

Winter class #1: Italian

Who doesn’t love a good sauce with homemade pasta? If making your own sauce has always felt intimidating, seize the opportunity to learn how to make one Italian classic, Bolognese Sauce with homemade fettucine. We promise it will be easy and fun and everyone at home will be pleased with the results!
