Would you like to eat healthy meals at home, but can’t find the time to cook or don’t know the first thing about cooking healthy or cooking at all. Let Christine help. As a former project manager, she applied her mad organizational skills to the kitchen with the goal of eating healthy meals at home—most of the time. Gone are the days of a fridge and pantry filled with convenience, prepackaged foods or stopping to “pick something up” on the way home from work.

Why Cook at Home:

  • You are what you eat. No hidden ingredients.
  • Healthy home-cooked meals contain less calories than typical restaurant meals.
  • Spend quality time with your family cooking; teaching your kids important life skills.
  • Reduce your environmental footprint.

In her Practical Kitchen class, Christine will teach you how to stock and organize your kitchen, plan meals and prep recipes, so you’ll be eating healthy and tasty meals in no time. She will teach you the basics including batch cooking, simple knife skills and kitchen tools that will help you prepare meals quickly for your whole family to enjoy. Classes customized to best meet your cooking needs.
