Learn to Cook with Me
Do you love the recipes on this blog but wish you could get some face time with me to ask questions? Would you love to be able to open up your fridge or pantry and see endless options for delicious and nutritious meals right before your eyes? Do you want to have fun and meet cool people and learn new stuff? Yeah?! Awesome! Because I’m teaching cooking classes live in Los Angeles! In these classes we will cover basic cooking fundamentals as well as tips and tricks that will save you time and money all while creating scrumptious dishes that will tantalize your taste buds.
What You Can Expect from Delightful Table Cooking Classes
My cooking classes are a hands on experience where you will get to practice everything you learn. I firmly believe that when it comes to cooking, doing is the best way to develop lasting skills. Cooking is an art and there are some things that have to be felt, tasted and seen with your own eyes to understand. Cook books can take you pretty far and so can videos but there’s nothing like rolling up your sleeves and doing it yourself. I will be there every step of the way to coach you, answer questions and make sure that you are getting as much out of the lesson as possible. We will not use recipes during the class so that you can focus on developing what I call “the touch”. The Touch is the ability to know when the oil is hot enough, when the food is properly seared, how high or low to have the heat and how much salt and seasoning is needed. Becoming comfortable with these basics will allow you to get creative when you get back to your own kitchen and are trying to create a dish on your own.
Format of Cooking Classes
When you arrive, you will be checked in and shown to your work station. You will have all the tools you need to cook our meal. We will do some introductions and then we will dive into the cooking! I will guide you through cooking the entire menu with your classmates. Most of the cooking will be done by you with a few group activities. After we’ve cooked ourselves a feast, we will sit down to enjoy a delicious meal. Feel free to ask more questions and swap tips and tricks with your classmates. You will most likely have leftovers so bring your containers! After class you will receive a detailed email with recipes for all of the dishes we made. Of course, feel free to follow up with me if you have questions!
Classes are held at The King’s Roost in Silver Lake. When you sign up for a class you will get detailed info and contact information about the class you will be taking.
Cooking Classes Are Fun!
