If you are here more than likely you are looking to learn how to cook, to improve your cooking skills, or maybe to have a different kind of event with your friends and family - and if so - you are in the right place.
It is an honor to have the possibility to teach you how to cook. I believe that cooking is a skill that will make a huge impact in your life. Besides, my cooking classes are interactive and fun, you can invite your friends and family and we will start a party!
Key things that sets our cooking classes apart:
Flexibility: You will have the flexibility to select a cuisine to cook, a skill to learn or a nutrition workshop with hands-on activities.
Individuality: No class is created equal. Classes are designed based on your personalized profile. We will create a class based on your cooking skills, your expectations and your learning goals.
Cooking classes are customized for teams, couples and friendly family competition.
Bring us your cooking and eating challenge and we will give you a cooking class that will support you!
Few things that you might want to know:
Locations: Our cooking classes are held: In your home, in any facility with a kitchen - such a club house, business office, retreat venues - or in one of the cooking schools where we are affiliated in the South Florida area.
What our cooking classes are NOT:
They do not require expensive nor special equipment
They are not cooking lessons with unusual or hard-to-find ingredients
They are not bland meals without flavor
They are not boring lectures
If you can relate to any of these situations - from real people that we have worked with - we will be able to support you and CREATE a cooking class designed just for you:
I love to cook but I get frustrated because I need to please a picky family, we all like different things and have different nutritional needs!
I like to cook, and I cook at home, but I don’t know how to use a knife properly. I want to have better cooking techniques and knife skills.
I want to include plant-based and gluten free ingredients in my meals and maybe eventually go vegetarian or even vegan.
I want to feel comfortable substituting meats for plant-based ingredients, and make dishes more substantial than a salad!
I want to cook fish with ease. I only eat fish out cause is always a disaster when I try to cook it at home!
I just want to have fun in the kitchen and learn creative alternatives from what I am cooking now!
I eat healthy but my family does not. I want them to see and taste that healthy can be delicious and easy to make!
My dad/mom/spouse is diabetic and have high blood pressure, we need to eat better at home!
We eat out too often and we are getting sick of it!
My fiance is a meat eater, and I consider myself a "pesquetarian"; I want her to learn how to make a few fish dishes and for us to learn how to make dishes that we will both enjoy!
I love to cook but being a stay home mom of three is not easy and I find myself getting frustrated when meal time comes by so fast and I end up grabbing the same packaged foods too often!
I want to add nutrient dense ingredients and make meals that will nourish my cells.
I want to be a smart grocery shopper; I would like to go in and out of the market and get the BEST ingredients for me.
I want to have easy access to my pantry, fridge and freezer. I have a lot of stuff that I don’t use or don’t even know I have!
I want to follow an X diet and I have their book, but the recipes are complicated. They don’t give me the menus and I want to know how to combine the recipes to make full meals for my family.
I would like to change my diet and I don’t even know where to start! There are soo many options...the Raw Vegan diet, Vegan diet, Vegetarian diet, Alkaline diet, Keto diet, “Eat for Your Blood Type” diet, the “How not to Die” diet, the No-Sugar, Salt, Oil diet!
I love sweets. I want to make desserts that are not bad for me and that I can eat them without guilt!
