FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I generally like to go through a short questionaire to determine what kind of experience the student is looking for whether they are looking to have one-on-one classes as they look toward a future in the culinary industry or if they are looking to host a doubles date night cooking class.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have 13 years of professional cooking experience, over 25,000 hours in professional kitchens and 14,000 hours with a kitchen knife in hand.  Spent countless hours training new employees to cook in a variety of restaurants giving me the opportunity to learn how to teach all kinds of personalities in any number of ways.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

First Lesson starts at $35/person/hr in order to determine a good fit. 

Every Lesson thereafter is $50/person/hr

$35/hr discounted price for parties of 5 or more.

Grocery cost not included.  Tools Included.

Ask about our Kitchen Essentials Bundles Starting with The 3 Books Every Kitchen needs,  advanced packages available.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look for a teacher with at least 10 years in the industry.  This is a good amount of time as they should have some tricks to teach you that you won't find in a cookbook or from your friend at the office.

Ask them about their tools policy. Things like if you need to provide tools, knives especially.  If you want to provide your own knives that's fine and even encouraged, but ensure your knives are well-maintained.  Sharpness is 90% of the battle.

Look for a passionate teacher.  If your teacher doesn't sound excited on the phone, don't expect them to be in person.  If you really want to learn how to cook, look for someone that talks to you about lessons with more excitement than you have.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

A good client should consider the space available for use as well as what they plan to make; ie. If you don't have a kitchen island, you don't have space for a pasta making class.

Consider your cooking experience and what you'd like to learn as well as the timeframe you're looking to learn it in.

If you're looking for consistent classes you should consider carving out 3-5hrs for lessons ideally 2-3times a week. (suggested for those that want to take their foodie status to the next level)
