chalkboard menuCooking Themes for Private Classes

Our private classes are based on cooking themes with a complete dinner menu to make your class an experience that can easily replicate at home!

We have chosen many traditional recipes and have re-worked them to bring a healthier and a bolder “taste impact” to your palate.

Cynthia will work with you to customize a menu that suits your group’s tastes, talents and any dietary requirements. Approximately 4-5  dishes will be created and enjoyed for the group lunch.

The majority of the ingredients will be sourced locally.
