A Note from Catherine St. John

Another Fall is upon us and we have even more classes to offer you. We are going to try and offer some daytime classes during the week as we have
been getting lots of requests for this.

Looking for a shorter fun series of classes that will give you new ideas for weeknight meals? Try Weeknight Suppers. This eight part class will be offered on Wednesdays from 11:30AM-1:30PM. We will pack a lot into a two hour hands on class and at $49 the price can’t be beat.

Look for many new ethnic cooking classes and for the first time we will be offering a few parent/child classes like pasta making.

For years we have done a Tuesday night series: Tech and Theory of Cooking, Science of Good Cooking or our series based on Ruhlman’s Twenty. We are shaking things up and will be offering a $40 Monday night two hour demo called Cooking School. This class will focus on a particular ingredient, technique or type of cooking. On Thursday nights you will have the opportunity to take the same theme class, with different recipes, in a three hour ($75) class format to really cement the methods, techniques and improve your overall confidence in the kitchen.

Chef Ellen Velez will be back with a great series on Tuscany, along with some gluten free cooking classes. Betty Shewmon will be returning with 3 classes on healthy Mediterranean foods that are so full of flavor you will forget you are eating healthy. Chef Brian Kabb will be joining the team and he will be bringing years of cooking experience to the kitchen. Look for evening and daytime classes from Brian. Local Chef David Holland from The Copper Pot Catering will be offering two classes on Pumpkin Carving. We will have one adult carving class and

one kids carving class. These are sure to be a

We welcome back Anna Weisend for 3 weekend baking workshops. And, what would our schedule be without bread baking with Kathy Lehr?

We have plenty of holiday classes in November and December to give you lots of ideas. We will be doing a Dry Run Thanksgiving class and a class where you can come make some pies to serve at Thanksgiving.

Chef Anne Haynam will be back with four new Friday Night Date Night classes; these are always a sellout.

Looking for something to do for a company outing or a private event? Make sure to put us on your list. We can do groups up to 12 in Hudson and up to 35 in our Cleveland kitchen. Call or email us to find out
more. Dates for the holidays book up fast so make sure you contact us early so we can tailor your event to your needs.

New this Fall we will be offering in home cooking classes. Can’t come to us, then we can come to you. We can set up an in home visit to see what would work best for you and you invite your guests to your very own in home cooking class. This is great for dinner groups, a family get together and other fun gatherings. Email me at to get started.

There are so many new classes in this brochure, I am sure that you will find something that will pique your interest. We look forward to playing with you in the kitchen and thank you for all of the continued support!
