Food and drinks


Join former Chez Panisse chef and longtime cooking instructor Shelley for an hour-long cooking class. You'll come away with something delicious to eat, and boosted confidence in your cooking chops.

Choose from one of these three dishes for your group to make:

1) French Onion Soup
Together we'll make French Onion Soup. Learn the magic of slowly caramelizing onions, and turning them into soup that is luxe and luscious. And you’ll learn the origin of “crouton” when you float that cheese-laden delight on a bowlful.

2) Key Lime Pie
Learn to make delicious Key Lime Pie from scratch. This silky, sweet-tart confection is easy for any level of cook to master in one hour.

3) Penne Pasta with Spicy Red Sauce
This Sicilian Red Sauce is so southern Italian. You’ll learn to coax big flavor out of a few simple ingredients, and master a recipe that is yours forever. We’ll make several quarts of sauce, and eat it with penne, Pecorino, and gusto.

The class includes:
- Recipe
- Shopping list
- An hour of live Zoom instruction
- A delicious dish to eat
- Boosted kitchen confidence
- Chef's kisses from friends and family whenever you make the dish

I can adapt recipes to allergies and vegan needs, and make suggestions for Kosher preparations.
