Chef JoAnna will help you coordinate a menu to suit your event and your budget.

The location is yours to choose.

  • If you'd like to have a private cooking lesson party at your home (or anywhere you'll have access to a kitchen), Chef JoAnna will bring all the ingredients and tools we'll need to prepare the food. We can use your service platters and utensils, or you can rent whatever is needed from Chef's wide inventory of hot & cold serviceware.

Services always include lesson planning, local travel, recipe booklets, time spent grocery shopping*, advance preparation, 4 hours of hands-on instruction, use of any specialized equipment, and clean-up. All participants can borrow my toques & aprons. It does not include disposables, beverages or optional gratuity. *The cost of groceries is additional and varies depending on what you prefer. For example, if you request organic foods, gluten-free bread/pastry, or vegan ╥dairy╙ products, that will increase costs. I typically shop at Sprouts, Publix or Kroger, and would be happy to go to Whole Foods or another specialty market upon request. Groceries can be reimbursed on the date of the lesson. I'll phone you from the grocery store to check on any last-minute needs.
The cost of groceries is additional, reimbursed directly. Wine pairings can be suggested, but you must purchase alcoholic beverages on your own.
