Ever read a recipe and think, “HUH?”
I love the wide range of recipes and cooking techniques I find online, but for a new home cook, it can be overwhelming and intimidating just to get started.
What’s a pinch? How do I season to taste? When will I know if it’s fully cooked through? Should I cover the pot? Will my friends get sick?
Cooking is supposed to be fun, but when you don’t know the basics, it can seem like more stress than it’s worth to learn. After all, how many times have you gone to the grocery store, stocked up on ingredients and vowed that THIS IS THE WEEK I’M GOING TO START, only to throw everything away? (Ok, not those chocolate chips. Those got to stay.)
You are not alone. Even the best cooks have been there.
If you’re totally over these excuses and ready to get into the kitchen, I can help. I teach busy professionals the basics they need to be a successful home cook. My clients have a desire to want to learn to cook, but they don’t have the time to spend hours pouring over cookbooks or watching Youtube videos online. And they definitely don’t have time to screw the whole thing up, or give their girlfriend food poisoning.
Maybe you want to learn to cook to impress a date or to finally put your new kitchen table to use. Maybe you want to stop spending so much on take-out, or you’d really love to learn so you can cook healthier and be more aware of what’s going in your body. Whatever the reason, I can take you from zero to cooking FAST.
Here’s how it works: we’ll have a kick-off call so I can understand your goals. Don’t worry if you’ve never cooked before — many of my clients haven’t, and there’s nothing you need to know in advance. Together, we’ll come up with a plan customized to you and your current skill level, then schedule a kitchen audit so I can take a peek at your tools and recommend basics that you’ll need for our lessons.
From there, it’s time to get cooking! I’ll come to your home and cook alongside you, so you get comfortable making magic happen in your own space. No awkward cooking schools. No judgmental strangers. No stress of keeping up with the class. You’ve got this.
It’s simple to be impressive, so let’s get cookin’ baby!
