Our cooking classes start by discussing your favorite foods. Whether it be something you’ve had at your favorite restaurant or something you ate as a first time guest and wanted to know how to recreate it at home. Maybe it was something you wanted to host a dinner party with, but didn’t know the best technique to use to provide it. We start by creating the menu together. Then, I will source the ingredients from our list of resources and farms. We then, provide the lessons in your home to teach you how to create the best, most delicious meals to make your events a success. Finally, you and your guests enjoy the 3 course experience.
The menu items below are just a snapshot of the possibilities for our collaboration of your personalized culinary experience. Together we will design the menu for your perfect event. We provide cooking lessons, in your home, to teach you how to create the best, most delicious meals to make your events a success! I am honored that you have chosen me to help you in your culinary journey, and I look forward to working with you from menu design to the finished plate.

” My friends and I were interested in doing something fun and creative for a night out. We didn’t realize how fun and energetic an in-home, personalized cooking class would be. Chef Bill is fun, exciting, and personalizes the menu so we all were able to have the best culinary experience ever.” – Lisa Purdie
