Classes are hands-on, participatory and a whole lot of fun! As a class we prepare 4 courses, taking advantage of passive and active cooking time so that the full meal will be ready at once.

At First Class Cooking, we want to make everyone a better home chef. Our culinary approach teaches
• Proper Culinary Technique
• explains Kitchen Science in relatable & memorable terms
• discusses principles of Flavor Composition
so that one can successfully cook, without a recipe.

Recipes are developed to deliver sophisticated flavors in elevated preparations yet still be approachable, so that novice chefs will not feel overwhelmed. Instruction is hands-on and ?s are welcomed throughout.
Other things to note
Please address any dietary or allergy concerns before cooking to discuss how we can accommodate them.

No Culinary experience is required.

I started First Class Cooking with a mission to make everyone a better home chef. I started cooking in grade school and my curiosity and adoration for produce led me to work on farms, in kitchens and in catering operation across the US and abroad.

My approach distills proper culinary technique, explains kitchen science in relatable, memorable terms, and discusses principles of flavor composition so that one can successfully cook, without a recipe.

The class atmosphere is fun, encouraging and social and the recipes are flexible to dietary concerns as well as ingredient you'll find back home
