Chef Larsen thrives upon teaching children how to cook healthy meals in order to increase their confidence. In this class, she will visit your home and entertain groups of up to five children for the afternoon while teaching them some of the most valuable skills they can learn! Cooking is a wonderful way for kids to build confidence in themselves, yet many working parents simply don’t have the time to teach their children the basics of culinary creation. This is where Chef Larsen comes in! Don’t worry about having to clean up a dirty kitchen afterward, as she will make sure that everything is left in the same condition it was found in!

The small group size ensures that each child gets the individual attention and instruction they need and deserve. She carefully instructs her pupils in the timeless art of creating healthy and delicious meals. Each child is responsible for creating four separate dishes, including a main course, a vegetable, a desert and a bread/granola item that they can take home to share with the whole family!

Cooking is an important life skill, and it is Kathleen’s goal to put a smile on each and every child’s face that takes her class. Parents are absolutely blown away by the results they see as well. “I get testimony after testimony from parents saying their kids are more interested in cooking,” Larsen states. “They’re so proud of themselves that they can make dinner… That’s what it’s all about!”

It’s all about the grill and enjoying summer’s bounty. In this class, we’re grilling steak tips, chicken, shrimp and seasonal vegetables and Jeff will share tips and techniques such ... moreas brining, that ensure these babies come out tender and juicy. We’ll make four different sauces to mix and match--an Argentinian chimichurri reminiscent of Marlene’s five-week Patagonian sojourn, Asian style soy-lime sauce, kale pesto and Sriracha butter sauce so that you’ll have plenty of options for your next barbecue! In keeping with the theme, we’ll make a warm salad of grilled Romaine lettuce with walnuts and blue cheese and finish up with tropical fruit kabobs with a killer rum sauce. Yeah, it’s summer alright!

What's on the menu?
Grass-fed Grilled Steak tips, Sustainably-farmed Shrimp, Organic Chicken and Seasonal Vegetables with various dips served over organic rice, Grilled Organic Romaine Lettuce with walnuts and blue cheese, Tropical Fruit Kabobs with Rum Sauce (Gluten-free)

In this class, our chef will instruct you on the timeless art of constructing fresh and delicious pasta! The majority of Boston cooking classes tend to not focus upon authentic Italian ... morefare, so this is a real treat, as just about everyone loves pasta!

You will learn how to make different kinds of pasta here, such as tortellini and gnocchi. Tortellini has a very distinctive ring shape and is typically stuffed with all sorts of delicious fillings from various cheeses to different kinds of meats. Gnocchi is a small kind of dumpling that is generally thick in texture and flavored with various herbs. 

Menu for this class:

Italian Salad in Parmesan Crust Baskets

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese 

4 Kinds of Pasta

Chicken Marsala 

This is one of the most intriguing food classes in Boston you will ever find! Not only do you have the opportunity to learn directly from Chef Walker’s experiences and travels, you ... morewill literally learn how to take apart an entire animal!

While most butchering classes will only teach you how to obtain certain cuts of meat, in Chef Walker’s class, absolutely nothing goes to waste. You work with every part of the animal, from head to tail, learning the best preparation methods for each and every cut of meat you obtain.

The whole butchery not only promotes a greater respect for the animal you are utilizing, it encourages creativity, as you will be working with cuts of meat that may not be familiar to you! In this class, Chef Walker brings people together for incredible moments of education mixed with information and of course, fun.
