Cooking Classes…the PERFECT PARTY!

Chef Anna Gordon has been teaching Cooking Classes for over 10 years. She started as one of William-Sonoma’s Technique Class instructors and soon became one of their top Cooking Class instructors as well as Trainer for all the other Instructors. Our Chef loves to see the lightbulbs go off in eyes as people understand the subtle nuances and joys of cooking. With her hands on Organic approach to teaching, Chef walks the students through step by step explaining the thoughts, techniques and explanations as to why things work. Her knowledge is laced with her humor. A smile is always a part of the service because Chef Anna believes that everyone should experience the joy of cooking and sharing delicious meals with friends and family. She emphasizes that the love and joy of cooking goes hand in hand with creating successful and delicious foods. This is her passion…to share the love of cooking.
