CLASSES



Phillis' classes are "home-cook" friendly and teach techniques that easily adapt to other recipes. The end goal? To encourage students to have fun in the kitchen!

(view classes in calendar format)


PRIVATE COOKING CLASSES


For a 3 hour private HANDS-ON cooking class for 1 to 3 people in your kitchen I charge a fee of $300 plus the cost of the food - you handle the clean-up.

For a 2 to 2 1/2 hour DEMONSTRATION cooking class for up to 12 (additional fee for each person over 12) are $475 plus $100 for my assistant plus the cost of the food - we clean up through serving dessert. Can be held in your home (or held at the Boys and Girls Club in Solana Beach or Encinitas for 20% more for the rental fee, or 30% more if held at the La Jolla Community Center - all locations have full demo kitchens.)

I will plan the menu with you, develop the recipes, print them so each person receives a copy, shop for all the food, set up, demonstrate how to cook each recipe, serve the food and provide an entertaining and informative event.

If you have a gourmet group, a birthday dinner to plan, a club meeting or just a bunch of friends who like to get together the demo classes are lots of fun. If you have a particular skill you want to learn or practice or if you want to brush up your cooking skills the hands-on classes are the way to go. The theme of the class can be anything really - Knife Skills, Easy Everyday Dishes, Grilling Techniques, Italian, French, Thai or Indian Cuisines, Cooking Fish, Cocktails and Hors d'oeuvres - I've even done a class on Cooking with Blue Cheese!

Even if this description doesn't fit exactly what you have in mind but you have an idea of what you would like in a class, contact Phillis and she'll work out the details! For more info or to schedule, email philliscarey@aol.com or call (760) 942-1756.
