I recently gave a cooking demonstration for the Art Department at Boston University, which was the first time cooking was included in their program. I found the energy from the students palpable, their excitement for the cooking process inspiring. Not surprisingly, the interest was equal in both young men and women.

The demonstration lasted well beyond the one hour agreed upon, morphing into a full fledged party that everyone was reluctant to let end. As a result the whole class at Boston University is campaigning to include my cooking lessons to the Art program.

My previous teaching experiences include:
  • Instructor, Connecticut Culinary Institute, where I taught gourmet hobby classes in several areas of cooking.
  • Instructor, demonstration classes at Wild Oats, a natural food market in West Hartford CT.
  • Instructor, cooking classes for Berlin Adult Education.
  • Instructor, cooking classes for Manchester Community College
  • Instructor, cooking classes for Bristol Adult Education
I hope to inspire the same enthusiasm, for the art of cooking, in people who have always wanted to learn but though too difficult to try. Please contact me if you would like to arrange a cooking lesson.
