“The (Fourth of July Barbecue Fiesta) classes are fun and efficient! Kristina puts together a great menu and details how to do everything! I learned some cool techniques and left with a full and happy tummy.”
review from Margerie
“I took the Seaside Supper class, and not only was it awesome and informative- but it really did inspire my next dinner party. I threw a pinterest-worthy dinner while working a full-time job and after-work mommy duties without breaking a sweat because I followed her guide. It felt incredibly satisfying! Thanks, Kristina!”

This intimate Wine Lovers class will explore various flavor components and how to pair them with a delicious flight of wines. This class will teach the philosophy of world-famous sommelier, Marnie Old, of wine pairing do’s and dont’s. You will also learn how to put together a sophisticated evening of wine-tasting, homemade pastas while learning kitchen techniques and other tricks on pulling together a virtually stress-free dinner party.
Nothing celebrates summer more than a weekend by the sea. Add some delicious seafood and chilled wine against the salty sea air- well, that’s just lovely. In this class, we will show you different ways of preparing lobsters and crabs, delicious fresh fish and other tips on making an effortless seaside bash.
Apart from celebrating America’s independence- Fourth of July is a nationwide celebration of barbeques, campfires and family get-togethers. In this class, you will be shown how to create a fun and easy feast filled with crowd favorites such as Asian-styled Pork Ribs and chili-marinated steaks, and other campfire-dishes.
Join us as we prepare to usher in summer with a solstice garden party. Enjoy a cooking class followed by a seated lunch. We will source local, seasonal ingredients to create a delicious summertime menu.
