Maybe you are on your own for the first time and have discovered that eating out is expensive and take-out is tiresome.  (College bound? Newly married? Loss of a spouse? Recently divorced? etc.), or maybe you just think it’s time you learned how to cook (or cook better) - darn it!!  You desperately need a small repertoire of dishes for daily dining, but you can barely manage instant coffee. Sound like you? Then this is the class for you.

Chef and Lead Instructor Jill Garcia Schmidt is an engaging cooking instructor with a true passion for teaching folks to cook. In this informative class, she will assume you know nothing---absolutely nothing---about cooking and she’ll take it from there.  Chef Jill will get you on your cooking feet and on your way to preparing simple, delicious food in not time. Promise.  

We will learn about basic cooking equipment and menu planning plus essential culinary skills like basic knife skills and more.  You'll also help with some of the cooking activities as Chefs teaches you basic dishes that can easily be varied and that will take you well beyond Ramen Noodles and Spaghetti-O’s. (C’mon….you  know who you are!)  Plus, you'll get to tie on an apron and assist  with some of the cooking activities, too.

You got questions?  Chef Jill has got the answers … plus the experience, skills and patience to teach you how to cook. Yes, you CAN do it! A great Christmas gift idea!
