Everyday Gourmet Cooking Classes
As long as there have been families, the gathering place has always been the kitchen. Rediscover the simple pleasure of a family meal – fresh, healthy and delicious food shared with the ones you love. Such meals do not need to be a special occasion; they can become a stress-free, everyday ritual, even for the busiest families.
Everyday Gourmet cooking classes offered by Intimate Events Catering exclusively at the Kestrel Woodinville Wine Cellar, teach you to make healthy, creative meals – from scratch and nearly scratch – requiring no more time or effort than the use of processed, prepared foods. One class will convince you that “getting dinner on the table” need not be a chore or a complex process requiring hours in the kitchen. For the experienced cook, we offer new and creative recipes and ideas to help you break out of your rut. For those new to the kitchen or self-proclaimed “non-cook” we will help you embrace the concept that Everyone Can Cook.
In addition to being a fantastic gift for any home chef, our cooking classes are the perfect date night or girl’s night out. Consider grabbing a few of your friends and make it a couple’s night. We also create custom classes for bridal or bachelorette parties and have an extensive background in gluten and nut free cooking.
We invite cooks of every level and background, encouraging everyone’s hands-on involvement and development of their own food intuition. No matter your previous experience around a kitchen, you will leave a more confident and inspired cook – able to prepare vibrant dishes from scratch using fresh, seasonal ingredients. We always plan an interesting variety of dishes made with fresh ingredients. It is a “hands on” class; everyone has an opportunity to work in groups and prepare one of the dishes on the menu.
The unique aspect about the classes is that we encourage everyone to use their intuition about cooking, to “connect” with the food and “feel” what ingredients it needs. For many, the kitchen can be an intimidating place. We hope to transform that uncertainty into excitement and creativity.
Taking Everyday Gourmet cooking classes at Kestrel Wines is relaxing, stimulating and highly creative. Not only do we hope to educate and inspire but also create fun. Besides cooking in teams, we get to sit down and enjoy the meal we have prepared. We relax over a glass of wine, it is a great opportunity to meet new people and reconnect with old friends.
