Attention, culinary newbies! We offer a one-day Saturday workshop that will get you started in the kitchen. Students begin with knife skills and work their way through the 12 essential recipes we believe everyone should know. These recipes call for just a few simple ingredients, minimum equipment, and are open to lots of interpretations. And the techniques you learn will last a lifetime.

This class is great for college students, college-bound students, post-grads, newlyweds, and people whose parents have finally kicked them out of the nest. For more details, especially concerning your level of expertise, please give us a call.

You don’t need to bring anything – we provide an apron for use during class as well as plenty of take-away containers. You may bring along a chef’s knife (non-serrated) if you have one, and we’ll sharpen it for you.

Note: Enrollment is limited; we want to keep the class small and focused!

Basic cooking knowledge is solid grounding for a self-sufficient life, so we offer the junior version of our adult beginner’s series for budding chefs for students 10-12 years of age.

Students cover everything from basic knife skills to the techniques for preparing simple, real food. It’s not just about the recipes: this is about problem-solving, time management, everyday arithmetic, and applied creativity.

Each week, students will prepare a three-course meal that can be prepared with adult supervision in the kitchen; one class is devoted to after-school snacks.

Classes meet every Monday afternoon from 4:30-6:30 PM beginning March 12. Students receive a packet of recipes at the end of the four-week capsule.

For more details and an application form, please email or call 508-904-6589.
