Bring a group of friends, family or staff members together for a fun cooking experience: learn new recipes and enjoy tasty, healthy food. Students learn to create health-supporting recipes using whole foods as ingredients, as taught by personal chef Laura Moore. Classes will include opportunities for hands on food preparation if requested, and all students enjoy samples of each recipe made in class, plus take-home recipe handouts. Lesson fees vary based on menu complexity, cost of ingredients and instruction requirements. Please contact Chef Laura directly with booking inquiries.
