Cooking Classes

Welcome to Hudson Valley Cooking Classes~ Our classes are taught by Holly Shelowitz, Culinary Nutrition Educator.
For close to 2 decades, Holly has inspired thousands of people get into their kitchen and cook. Holly’s hands on and demonstration classes are taught in the beautiful kitchen located in the showroom of Rhinebeck Kitchen and Bath and is stocked with the highest quality kitchen tools from Warren Kitchen and Cutlery
Holly’s classes focus on fresh ingredients prepared to bring out maximum flavor. Throughout the class, Holly gives lots of helpful nutrition information, time saving tips and knife skills to make it easier for you to get dinner on the table and lunch in your box with grace and ease. You will learn about herbs/spices/ingredients and condiments that make the simplest ingredients taste like a restaurant meal. Spend time in your kitchen daily and you will be rewarded in many ways. Gather with friends and family around the stove and table and your life will be blessed.
Hands on Classes provide a 2 hour cooking lesson, where everyone participates side by side, chopping slicing and stirring up a fabulous meal. At the end of class, we sit around the table enjoying the fruits of our labor. Class size is limited to 10 people for maximum attention for a wonderful class.  BONUS** When you take an in person class, you receive a gift card for 10% off a purchase at Warren Kitchen and Cutlery.
Demonstration Classes provide you the opportunity to lean back and learn while Holly or a guest chef demonstrates step by step how to make each item on the menu, while you watch. Both hands on and demonstration classes include delicious tastings of the menu  that’s prepared. Bring friends and make new ones as we chop, slice and stir up a great meal together.
