Cooking classes customized for you

Go to my “Book a Class” page to select a class and pay for it with a credit card.

1 or 2 people, 2 hours:

$250 for 1 class

$400 for 2 classes

These classes are customized to your goals: to learn specific skills, and to cook a specific diet, a specific dish, or cuisine.

Generally, I cook without a recipe, and teach people a cooking method so they can create their own recipes. I share tips, tricks, techniques and skills.

You do the shopping: we decide the menu and I will send a list of food that is needed. I can shop, and give the receipt to you for reimbursement to be paid when we meet for the class. The fee for my shopping time depends on the menu.


Go to my “Book a Class” page to see my calendar and book your class.

Chinese proverb

Learn to cook, a cooking school for you

Join me in the kitchen to get to a new version of an automatic pilot that works for you – for your health, for your lifestyle.

I can help you find your inner cook,

and help you define the flavors you enjoy

so that you cook for your own tastes, your own personal cuisine.

Feeling comfortable in the kitchen is the first step toward enjoying the art and science of cooking, so I teach in the comfort of a real kitchen, mine or yours.

You’ll acquire new skills, techniques and cooking methods to use your entire life! To put a new twist on an old proverb:

“Cook a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to cook fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”
