Why don't you join me for a class? I teach all over the country, preparing my recipes and giving lots of tips, techniques, and encouragement (not to mention tasting samples of every dish).
Everyone is welcome, from beginning cooks to professional chefs. And each class, whether hands-on or demonstration, is infused with lots of stories, information, and a dash or two of humor. It's a great way to meet new friends or to do something special with your best friend or spouse.
Depending on the location, classes are available in the morning and evening and usually last 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Please check my calendar for a class near you. Hope to see you soon!
