COVID-19 Update

Cooking Classes

Our classes are taught by Chef Natasha who is a graduate of The French Culinary Institute in New York City, spent 14 years creating culinary curriculum for Williams-Sonoma stores worldwide. Natasha has been recently selected to represent Kansas on the Today Show and was the winner of Guy’s Grocery Games – Clearance Wars episode. Teaching cooking and understanding food is Chef Natasha’s passion. You will leave with great culinary information, detailed recipes, and a full belly!

Note from Chef Natasha – 

I’m so excited to be starting cooking classes back up and hope you are too. We have restructured our in-person classes due to Covid-19. Classes will be smaller – we are making efforts to seat everyone apart. We ask that you wear a mask during class unless you are eating or drinking. Instead of setting up a buffet of the food – we will now serve everyone individually. We will still continue to offer alcohol for purchase.

Class cost: $45 per person includes demonstrations, recipes, and a generous tasting from the class. Cancellations must be 36-hours prior to class for a refund or to be moved to another class. Just like any event ticket (even movie ticket) – we cannot refund, reschedule, or find you a replacement (though you are welcome to find someone in your stead) after those 36-hours.

COOKING CLASSES FOR FEBRUARY & MARCH 2021

February 7 at 3 PM – MEALS IN MINUTES WITH INSTANT POT PRESSURE COOKER

Let’s dust off our Instant Pot Pressure Cookers and create great weeknight dinners in minutes! From taking tired chicken to a tangy glazed chicken, enjoying a tropical-inspired dish to class comfort food – these three meals will please the whole family.

On the menu: Glazed Chicken Thighs with Parmesan Risotto, Sweet & Spicy Shrimp with Island Rice, and Swiss Steak & Mashed Potatoes

February 21 at 3 PM – FRENCH COMFORT FOOD

Most of us think of fancy fussy food when we think of French Cuisine and while it excels at this; some of my favorite French recipes are pure comfort especially on a chilly winter day. Join me to learn some of my favorite French comfort food recipes. On the menu: Ham & Gruyere Croque Madame (the best perhaps fanciest grilled cheese I make), Coq au Vin with Buttered Egg Noodles (probably the most well-known French stews), Creamy Cauliflower Gratin, and Chocolate Mousse. 

March 7 at 3 PM – TECHNIQUE CLASS: SAUCE

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “Mother Sauces” and wondered how can this help my cooking.  Learning the basics of sauces, the “Mother Sauces,” and some of its most popular derivatives allows simple meats or vegetables to shine! A sauce can completely change a standard piece of chicken into so many flavorful options. This class is not menu oriented but rather focuses on sauce-making techniques. You’ll learn: how to make stock and a basic pan sauce, Sauce Espagnole (derivatives: Bordelaise and Chasseur), Hollandaise (derivative: Bearnaise and Choron), and Bechamel (derivatives: Mornay and Indienne).

March 21 at 3 PM – BRUNCH: ELEGANT & EASY ENTERTAINING

By far, my favorite way to entertain is brunch! There are truly no boundaries on what you can serve and spring is the perfect season to begin with Easter and Mother’s Day right around the corner. Polish off your champagne glasses and pull out some platters – we’ve got the recipes to make your brunch beautiful! On the menu: Asparagus Proscuitto Pastries, Avocado Toast with Smoked Salmon & Poached Eggs, Maple Bacon Sweet Potato Hash, and Peach Upside-Down Chiffon Cake.
