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.

Hands on Classes provide a 2 1/2 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.

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.

Chocolate Making Workshop Tuesday, June 20th 6:30-9:30
I recently traveled to a small organic cacao plantation in Costa Rica- to immerse myself in the magic of chocolate making.
To learn how chocolate grows, the alchemical process it goes through from the bean to the bar was such an amazing experience for me. It took the level of my cooking classes so much higher and I’m so excited to teach them!
Learn about the superpowers of cacao your health and well being and how to use them for your health and well being.
And the coolest part? NO WHITE SUGAR!!! Yeah baby!!
Your blood sugar doesn’t have to go WACKO while you enjoy CACAO. Cool right?
In this hands on chocolate immersion class, you will be so thrilled as we make dark chocolate right before your eyes using whole cacao beans. OMG it’s so magical.
