Kitchen Confidence Series

learning kitchen confidence
Roll up your sleeves, we are going to dive deep and get you comfy and confident in the kitchen!

What’s it all about?

  • Small class size, five (5) max. adults
  • Easy going, not rushed
  • Series only, Tuesday evenings in January (not sold as individual classes)
  • Even if you know nothing about cooking, this series will give you the skills and confidence to prepare and cook a wide range of foods. From cooking eggs through to cooking a full dinner. Learn to cook for your family and friends, confidently. 
  • This isn’t about becoming a chef, it’s about being able to cook really good food, without fear.

A quick run-down of events each night:

TUESDAY, JANUARY 4 | Knife skills | Pantry essentials | Kitchen tool essentials | How to grocery shop | Kitchen/fridge organization | Vegetables (to practice your new knife skills)

TUESDAY, JANUARY 11 | Stocks and soups | Chicken and egg cookery | Cooking with spices and herbs | Pan sauces

TUESDAY, JANUARY 18 | Fish cookery (baking, poaching, sauteeing) | Pasta, grains, and rice | How to make balanced and healthy meals using these ingredients  

TUESDAY, JANUARY 25 |  International cookery (Indian, Moroccan, Thai, Italian) | Meal prep and organization

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 1  |  Our last night together, we’ll go recipe-free and play the whole night by ear! We will fill in any gaps or inquiries not covered in prior weeks. We will use your new skills to create a dish on a whim, I call it Kitchen Improv!

Please note: this is a basic outline of the series, subject to change.


Who is this class for?

  • Anyone looking for a life skill that will help you save money, eat better and enjoy yourself in the kitchen
  • Beginners to cooking, even if you’ve tried and ‘failed’ in the past. It’s a confidence builder
  • Graduates from college who will now have to cook for themselves
  • Couples moving into their first home. Cooking for just themselves 
  • Anyone who is passionate about food but not sure how to make it themselves
  • Anyone looking for a full hands-on experience that will give them the technical foundation to strive at home

Class size limit: 5 adults  |  Class will be held in Shelagh’s brand-spankin’ new kitchen
(1803 Berkeley Ave., St. Paul)
