Cooking Classes

We have been working hard to put the finishing touches on the Cooking Classes called the Fine Art of Cooking Series offered through Orson Gygi in Salt Lake City, Utah. This series goes through the entire First Timer’s Cookbook expounding on the principles and techniques and giving more detailed information as well as giving students hands on practice with original recipes to demonstrate exactly how things are supposed to look, smell and taste like.


Here is a sneak peek of what the class is like, from our friend Stephanie Ford’s Blog.



Want to join the class?  You may have to wait a little while since we have sold out for the next

couple of months, but get signed up now for the series starting in June!
