What you'll learn in this culinary (meals) class:

Instead of ordering out, why not learn how to make an excellent shawarma platter (with all the trimmings!) at home?

  • Homemade Flatbread
  • Shawarma (Lamb, Chicken, and/or Cauliflower-Chickpea)
  • Chopped Salad
  • Tahini-Garlic Sauce

How these virtual classes work:

1) After registering, you will be sent a link to log into the class at the appointed date/time. 

2) One day before the class you will be sent a copy of the recipes we'll be making, so you can cook from them again after the class.

3) Classes are 90 minutes and will have a maximum of 10 households attending each session. 

4) This is a great opportunity to cook alongside friends and family! You can invite them to register their own households to join in the class, using the link in your confirmation email.


Because grocery shopping is not so easy these days, here is a sneak peek at what you will need in case that is helpful. This is enough food to feed 4 people:


 (enough for 4 people)

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and a pepper mill
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast (about 1 packet)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose-flour
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 large red onion
  • 1 pound fresh tomatoes (cherry, grape, or any good looking tomato), 
  • 1 bag romaine hearts
  • 1 pound lamb shoulder or boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 2-inch cubes
  • ½ cup tahini
  • Hot sauce (any kind, optional)

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

School Notes:

You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

There is no sit-down meal for the following classes:

The Baking Basics

Holiday Candy Workshop

Bubbles and Truffles: Candy Making for Adults

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden worktable that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy

We have a firm 48-hour cancellation policy to ensure that we have enough time to re-fill your seat with another student. For cancellations prior to the 48-hour mark, we are happy to offer credit for a future class. 

Non-refundable, credit only.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are not able to offer credit/refund for last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand these things do happen.

Missed Class Policy

What can I do if I have to miss a class during a Boot Camp?

We understand that finding 6 consecutive weeks on your calendar to book a Boot Camp can be challenging, but because of the volume of Boot Camps we offer, we cannot offer you a make-up class if you cannot make one or more of the classes. As a consolation we have two options, for those who need to miss a class within a Boot Camp series:

1) Send a friend in your place (and make them cook you a meal based on their new skills, as repayment!), or

2) Opt for our "Plan B" program:

You are welcome to attend any of our classes that still has an open seat 48 hours before it runs. That way you can take another class and we are just filling empty seats, as opposed to giving you a seat in a future class that would otherwise have been paid for. This does require that you keep tabs on our schedule to see what is available (the number of open seats is part of every class listing)

Plan B does not have any expiration date; just be in touch with me directly when you find a class that works for you.
