Gather a group of ten or more friends, clients or colleagues and take a class with the Beverly Hills Farmgirl!

You’ll spend two to three hours learning new cooking skills, knife techniques, shopping tips and meal planning tricks…all while cooking a fabulous five-course feast. You and your guests will receive a booklet of recipes, a free copy of Summertime Anytime: Recipes From Shutters on the Beach, and a chance to shop at the Farmgirl Store for the utensils, cookware and serving items used during the class.

What You Get
Classes are 2 to 3 hours, depending on the menu, during which time we will prepare at least four dishes from start to finish. All menus are custom designed to suit the tastes, skills, and kitchen equipment of you and your guests.

Classes are typically held in my kitchen in the West Los Angeles area during a weekday morning or evening. Or, allow me to come to you! I will bring all the ingredients and cookware necessary to do a class in your own kitchen. Additional charges may apply depending on your distance from Los Angeles.

Students can choose from a variety of sample menus by theme, or have the recipes tailored to their individual tastes and instructional needs. Each student will receive a booklet of all the recipes at the end of class.

Includes groceries, prep time and lunch or dinner. Alcohol is not included. Additional costs may apply if your kitchen does not contain basic pantry items or if your menu choices require specialty ingredients beyond the scope of the sample recipes. To find out more, please contact Dana.

Gift Certificates
At-home cooking classes make a great birthday, graduation, holiday or wedding gift! The recipient will receive an e-card including a message from you (see sample gift certificate e-card here).

    I am a foodie but cook very little (although what I do cook ain’t half bad)
    Do you have classes in which a beginner would feel comfortable?
    I don’t intend to work at a restaurant but I would like to be more creative in my favorite room..the kitchen.
    It’s all about adding to the joy of my life.
