Cooking Class Styles

Hands-On Cooking Classes

Hands-on cooking classes consist of: learning the recipe, preparing ingredients and cooking and plating actual dishes. Each student will participate in dish creation. As your personal chef, Chef Tillie will design your lesson to fit your skill level, needs and goals. Personalize your class by selecting your own menu, or allow the chef to suggest a pre-fixed menu for you! Don't forget you can enjoy your creations during and after the lesson.

Demonstration Cooking Classes

Suppose you would rather sit back, drink wine and watch the chef do all the cooking? We offer demonstration classes just for these types of people. Relax by yourself or with friends while a professional chef instructs you on how to create your favorite dishes. Sample the dishes being cooked, ask questions and take notes while you receive instruction from your own professionally trained chef.

Get some hands-on cooking experience and a professional cooking lesson with a combination cooking class! You will participate in preparing, creating and cooking an appetizer individually or as a group.
