Cooking Classes

We LOVE Connecting through Food and Sharing... come along on a

personal "Closed Door" session with

Chef Tony & Chef Sonia Marciante

Over 4 years of offering these fun classes, we've learned a couple things...


  • You don't have time to cook as much as you like at home...

  • You don't know WHAT to do when you get a bunch of food and it's time to cook...

  • You may need some help with PLANNING your food for the can you shop most effectively?

  • What do you do with the leftovers?  (Hint: Plan 2-3 uses for each purchase)

  • and How do I know how to buy FRESH fish?


All this and way more will be answered in your Small Group class with Chef Tony and his amazing wife Sonia.  (Sonia has over 20 years in the Restaurant Industry as well!)


Our main class happens several times a month, and we also offer PRIVATE classes if you have the need for more direct coaching.
