Newlywed Cooking Class

Looking for a creative gift for an upcoming wedding?  Book a custom cooking class for the happy couple! 

When a couple cooks together, it's not just about the dinner, it's about building routine and foundation for their new family and creating a sense of home. Give the newlyweds the gift of healthy cooking!

In this customized, in-home cooking class, the happy couple will learn to make use of all the beautiful kitchen tools from their gift registry. They'll learn how to wield a knife like a chef, how to get organized in the kitchen, and how to build quick, flavorful and balanced meals so they have more time and energy to enjoy their evenings together.

Unlike couples classes at a cooking school, the couples can schedule this class at their convenience and customize the menu to suit their tastes. Newlywed Cooking Class is also unique in that there's a focus on health and nutrition and an acknowledgement of the typical time crunch most busy couples face at the end of the day. So let's make it fun, easy and flavorful!
