These specially developed lessons bring my experience as a chef and an educator to bear in an engaging and inspiring session. We'll spend our time together learning not only how to make the dish, but exploring its background, history, or origin. Every lesson is peppered with professional tips that you can use beyond the making of this single dish.

Tell me what you'd like to learn, whether it's a certain cooking technique, a specific recipe, or a general "I want to learn how to..." and I'll prepare a personalized lesson for you. All the know-how combined with gentle instruction, interesting side notes, and unique tips just for you. Gain confidence in preparing food and tailoring it to your individual preference and taste.
