"You'll never know everything about anything, especially something you love." Julia Child

Cooking with Class with Deb Buzar



Fall Menu Suggestions - Bespoke Classes 2020

When you prepare the entire menu, the class generally lasts for 4 hours including the time to enjoy your meal.

Class format can be changed depending upon how long you want the class to last. I am available to prepare some of the menu items for you in advance of the class. The classes can be as hands on as you elect. These menus are also available for catered meals as well.  Contact Deb for specific pricing information.

I have included some popular seasonal suggestions to guide you with your menu selection.  You can mix and match your three-course menu, or we can discuss other options that you will enjoy.  These selections change frequently.  When finalizing the menu, I may make suggestions to ensure your experience the best it can be.  I reserve the right to change ingredients subject to availability and contact you for your approval of alternate suggestions.

Please select one item from the list of salads, soups or starters, then select an entrée with a side starch and vegetable and lastly, a dessert.

Prior to your class, the kitchen will be set with cutting boards, aprons, knives and recipe packets for each guests.

I will prepare a welcome bite for you to enjoy upon arrival. Please select one from the following:
