New Year Cooking Classes!


Happy New Year!!! With the start of 2015, I’m excited to share this new class line up. These are conducted at Marcel’s Culinary Experience in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.   I am starting another series of “Breakfast Now, Dinner Tonight!”.  It’s a class that’s perfect for busy moms.  First, I serve you breakfast at 9:30am which you’ll enjoy while I demonstrate your evening meal.  Not only will you be provided with the recipes for the class, but you’ll also be supplied with a ‘dinner starter kit’ to use as the foundation for your evening meal.  The class will wrap up by 11am with plenty of time to get any half-day kids from school and you’ll already have the makings of a healthy dinner in hand!  What a great way to start the year!

In the calendar below, you’ll also find midday demo classes in January (Savvy Slow Cooking & What to Cook on a Snowy Day), February (recipes from a recent trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina) and March (co-teaching with my mentor, my mom).  And don’t forget the college kids class in January!

I hope to cook with you soon!
