We have space for up to 10 people in our classes. Please reserve your space within 4 days of class. and let us know if you have any FOOD ALLERGIES please!

We can also schedule a private class if you would like to hold a class for your own group of friends/family. Pick a night that works for you, and we'll even make a specialized menu to suit your taste! It is also possible for Chef Lisa to come to you. Just give us a call and we will do our best to accommodate your culinary needs.
