Cooking Classes


My summer project for 2015 was a huge success! I taught a series of cooking classes designed for the practical professional, focusing on skills and techniques to use for weeknight cooking. The classes were held June 16, July 17, and August 4, at Prequel in Washington, D.C. {Prequel was located at 918 F ST. NW from March 2015 – January 2017.}

The hands-on classes were each approximately 2.5 hours in length, and during that time, we talked about efficient cooking, from technique to ingredients. Participants also enjoyed a glass of wine with dinner and got to know each other. One of the most unexpected parts of the classes for me was how fun and engaging all of the participants were. One student summed it up best, saying, “I would take a cruise with this group any day!” Another student’s only critique of the class was, “I wish there would have been more time to get to talk to the other people!” I hope to see all of the participants again soon!

Here are some photos from the classes.

I am thrilled to announce that I am teaching cooking classes this summer in Washington, D.C.! I am partnering with Prequel to bring DC professionals practical classes that fit into their lifestyle. Sick of starting the week at a food truck? Me too!* Come to a class and get some ideas for new staples. Enjoy dinner and a drink while you’re there, and take home lunch for the next day!

My first class is “Summer Recipes for the Work Week” and you can purchase tickets here. If the classes are successful, and other stars align, I hope to be able to bring you more classes with Prequel. If there is a class you would like to see – including additional classes with me – let Prequel know!

BONUS: My Development Associate, Nora, will be live-tweetstagramming the events, and I am looking forward to a great time. #NoraTweetstagrams. I will update this page with pictures and notes as we go.


* But I could eat gyros 5 days a week if left unattended.
