- Julia Child
Our classes were a hit! We'll resume after the summer season is over. Classes will be available for purchase as holiday gifts. Please join our Friends of La Boca email list on the homepage to stay in the know about all things La Boca!
We offer a changing schedule of lessons to choose from (see below to view & book)
While the subject/focus of the lessons vary, the format stays the same:
-Each class will begin with an introduction to the kitchen, an overview of the lesson, background information about techniques and recipes and a question and answer session.
-Then, the adventure of the day. You can be involved as much or as little as you like with the 'hands on' learning. Some like to get their hands dirty and others want to sit and watch the live cooking show- it's entirely up to you! Total hands-on learning is supported, but not required.
-You'll learn recipe specific techniques and some chef tricks to make your home cooking easier.
We provide refreshments throughout the class, and following class, we'll eat together! Class time (including the meal) is 3 hours for two people and 3.5 hours for four people.
You leave with what you made, along with some supplements to help you recreate the experience at home.
Bring your burning questions, and your curiosity! We love to help people become better cooks and it's our pleasure to field 'how-to' questions throughout your lesson.
Let us know in advance how we can make this lesson most valuable to you! Whether you have dietary restrictions to consider, or want to learn more about how to eat locally- whatever your interest- communicate it to us in advance and you can have the most tailor-made lesson!
Your class is private. Whether you book the lesson for you, or gift the lesson, it's your time and no one else's. This makes for a really special experience that is truly yours to customize as you wish. If you're gifting the class, please select a date in the future and inform the recipient that you/they can reschedule the date for a time that work for you both/all.
