Hands-on Cooking Classes

 My focus is on approachable recipes
that are designed to inspire you and give you confidence in the kitchen.


Classes are small, four to eight people,  and take place in my home in San Rafael.

Each class includes hands-on instruction. all ingredients, a packet of recipes,
and the meal we enjoy together at the end of class.


Private cooking parties are also available in my home or yours.
