Katie's online!

Connect with Chef Katie during a live 2-hour cooking class for only $20 per screen (not per person). Class begins at 5:30 pm.
Katie will email you recipes, a grocery and equipment list along with a Zoom link and helpful tips on getting connected. Gather all the ingredients and tools in your own kitchen, then watch while Katie demonstrates right alongside as you work. January classes include:

Winter Sweets: January 21

Chef Katie’s Winter Fruit Compote mixes fresh and dried fruits and is a great accompaniment to the rich Dark Chocolate Bread Pudding.

Pizza Party!: January 27 & January 28

Please note that this is a 2-night class and you must register for both classes.

Learn how to make 2 different kinds of pizza: 1) Butternut Squash, Sage Goat Cheese and Pickled Onion, and 2) Herb Roasted Zucchini, Italian Sausage and Braised Leeks. Make the pizza dough and prep a few toppings the first night, then finish the toppings and make pizza the second night. Each recipe makes 3 pizzas.

Because our class and event experiences are planned on pre-registrations, fees are non-refundable if cancellation received less than 10 days before the event date. Refunds for reservations made by credit card will reflect a deduction of the transaction fees. Registrants are always welcome to send someone in their place if unable to attend.
