My name is Deb Buzar. I knew I wanted to share my passion for delicious food and cooking with others ever since I graduated
from Culinary School over 16 years ago. I enjoy helping others learn techniques that they will continue to use to create
something delicious and special for those they care about.
To me, cooking is as much about the care, love and attention that goes into the preparation of a dish, as it is about the
ingredients and technique used to create it. Preparing a fondly remembered dish
or even reading a recipe can bring back wonderful memories of the time spent with those we love as well as to the places we
enjoyed it. You can travel the world by trying recipes and techniques from distant places. Recipes and cooking can take you
where ever you want to go. I have taught over 9,000 students since I began teaching cooking in 2003.
I currently teach cooking classes out of my home in Franklin, Michigan as well as from my clients homes in neighboring
communities. I want to share all things culinary with you.
I offer customized, hands- on or demonstration style cooking classes and cooking parties for adults,
teenagers and young children in my kitchen or yours.
1) Private Cooking Classes In My Kitchen in Franklin.
These classes are designed for those that want a very special experience in my home, in Franklin. These classes are for as few as
two people and can accomodate up to six people. Prepare to be pampered while you have a very special cooking and dining
What to expect:
The day you arrive for class you will be welcomed with complimentary beverage and snack to enjoy while you cook.
The kitchen will be set up with with knives, cutting boards and aprons to use during class.
I will give you instruction on how to prepare your selected menu. You will do the actual cooking.
When the food is ready, you will retreat to the dining room where I will serve you your meal.
Each participant will receive a packet of recipes of the food they created in class that day.
Wine pairings for your menu can be added at an additional cost, or you are free to bring your own wine.
I can arrange to have party favors for your guests if you like as well.
Lunch time classes with a set menu last 2-2.5 hours and are available Monday through Friday.
Daytime classes with a larger variety of menu selections are available during the week as well as on the weekends. These classes last 4 hours.
2) Divide the Dishes. This can be done in your home kitchen or mine.
I will provide you menu selections that are based on what it is you would like to learn. Once you decide how many portions of
each dish you would like to prepare, I will provide you with a shopping list with ingredients you will need to bring with you the
day of class. I will provide standard scant amounts from my pantry to complete your menu.
You will prepare the selected recipes with my instruction. You provide the containers
to package up your food, as well as proper coolers and refrigeration needed to store your food and serve at a later time.
3) Cooking Classes or Parties In Your Home Kitchen.
Let me come to you. I will bring the knives, cutting boards and aprons as well as the recipes
and any tools you do not have to complete the menu of your choice. Depending on the size of your group, I may need to hire
additional chefs and helpers to keep the event running seamlessly.
