Prize is a $25 gift certificate toward a future class and an award certificate.

Participants will be making various dishes for a meal of their own design, and along the way, demonstrating their kitchen skills, like knives, measuring properly and how to select salty, crunchy, sweet, acidic…etc. to enhance flavors.  Valerie guides and assists to ensure the best outcomes and gives tips for skills enhancement.

Each participant will be making an appetizer, a main entrée, and a dessert.  They will need to make 3 of each round, one for judging, and two for themselves and their adult guest (if there is one).

Everyone sits down to dine together on their unique and flavorful meal. One parent/guardian can join the ending dinner for additional $15. Enjoy food, fun, and new friends. A minimum of 3 participants needed to run this session and it only costs $49!
