Listing of Upcoming Classes

Cooking Classes-Hands On Participation

The classes take a hands-on approach to cooking, combining a relaxed, congenial atmosphere with personal instruction that guides you through every stage of recipe preparation. Julie and her special guest chefs provide a thorough overview of each recipe. In addition to learning recipes and techniques, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of theories that will create a strong foundation for your culinary repertoire. Learning the basic cooking techniques provides you with the confidence you need to tackle a recipe successfully. Teaching technique is important to me, once you understand the techniques it will allow you to cook with greater pleasure and success.

Whether you’re a veteran cook or just learning your way around the kitchen, these classes will help you develop your skills – and you'll have a great time doing it.
