Cooking with Class with Deb Buzar

Personalized Cooking Classes and Parties  

Each class is custom designed.  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.  If there something you would like to try and it is not listed here, let me know and I will try and include it in your menu.  Extra charges may apply depending on premium ingredients such as lobster or prime steaks or seafood.  When finalizing the menu I may make suggestions to insure 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.
