What you'll learn in this seafood class:

Shellfish is one of the easiest proteins to cook, but something that many home cooks fear, when it comes to choosing, storing, and preparing.

Let's demystify together!


Choosing, Cleaning, and Cooking Mussels, Clams, and Shrimp


  • Mussels Provençale with Garlic Toasts
  • Linguine with White Clam Sauce
  • Spanish Garlic Shrimp

  • Kosher salt and a pepper mill
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Crushed red-pepper flakes

  • ½ pound tomatoes, fresh
  • 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 large shallot or small onion
  • 1 fennel bulb (sometimes called “anise”)
  • 2 cups white wine, any kind (don’t buy “cooking wine” from the supermarket; ghastly stuff)
  • 1/2 pound linguine or capellini pasta
  • Grated Pecorino Romano or Parmigiano (optional, for serving)
  • 1 baguette or other crusty white loaf
SHELLFISH (buy half this amount if you are only serving 1-2 people)

  • 1 pound shrimp (wild, please!), the largest size you can buy (peeled or unpeeled)
  • 2 dozen small clams (littleneck or vongele)
  • 2 pounds mussels

  • Cutting board and a knife
  • 1 large frying pan/skillet
  • 2 medium to large pots, with lids
  • Cookie sheet or baking sheet
  • Tongs
  • Assorted mixing bowls


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

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

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

4) If you want to cook alongside friends or family, please invite them to join you, using the link below.

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.

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.
