Chef's Notes for Sweet Classes:
Please print and take a look over the recipes. Baking is a science. It does work best of you pre-measure all of your ingredients before class with a scale. If you don't have a scale then the cup equivalents are listed on the recipe sheets.
Chef’s Notes for Savory Classes:
Please print and take a look over the recipes. Omit anything you don’t have, can’t find, or don’t like. Feel free to substitute anything you do like or have lying around. Please print your recipes ahead of time. It’s always nice to have something to take notes on.
Get your cooking station set up before class. Set out the pots, pans, bowls, etc that you may need.
Again, the class time will include all prep work, cooking, baking, etc. We will show you from scratch the entire menu although all of our ingredients will be pre-measured.
We suggest that you pre-measure all of your ingredients as well.
