Mediterranean Cooking Classes


Learn how to cook Mediterranean cuisine! Classes are approximately 3 hours and are centered on the preparation of a complete meal. First you’ll have a demonstration from our Instructor Chef and the rest of the class will be hands on. Each lesson covers five recipes of your choice.


Classes can be held in any home, hotel, condo or  kitchen. If you don’t have kitchen facilities you can take a class at our kitchen. We are also happy to travel beyond the boroughs to teach, and traveling costs are based on your distance from downtown Manhattan. Our classes are held in English, Hebrew or Spanish.


All menus are tailored to suit the tastes and skill level of each student. The menus are suggested, but we can tailor the perfect one for you. Please select one salsa, one appetizer or soup, one entrée, one dessert and one drink on the suggested menus. We also teach Thai, Mexican, Kids. Kosher, vegan and vegetarian options are available.


We can offer you a class 7 days a week, mornings and evenings. As a courtesy to our instructors, we require a 48-hour notice (by phone in case we do not receive the email) to reschedule any booked class.


Totally hassle free classes, you just cook and have fun!!!
