Cooking Classes

Each cooking class with teach five recipes, and some may have a sub-recipe. You will be measuring, prepping and cooking one with another student, under Anita and her team’s guidance. Come ready to get your hands dirty! Do take the time to look through the menu and if you want to do a particular recipe, let us know when you walk in. 

We will all enjoy the food together at the end of the class around our large kitchen tables followed by a Q&A. The recipes with any pertinent notes will be emailed to you within 2 to 3 days. We prefer not to have drinks in the kitchen while cooking but feel free to come in a little early and get a glass of wine or beer. You can continue to enjoy the drinks at the end with dinner.
