A hands-on cooking class. A light, simple dinner will be served while our sweet treats bake; students are also welcome to brown bag food.
Join Jen Nurse for a hands-on baking course featuring cookies from around the world. We’ll learn a new twist on Mexican wedding cookies, discover the addictive crunch of Italian Krumiri and the ginger-scented joys of Swedish pepparkakor, and make arguably the most chocolatey creation of all: Pierre Hermé’s World Peace Cookies. Bring a to-go container and depart with a head start to your holiday baking!
Jen Nurse is passionate about demystifying cooking and baking for the home cook. A lifelong love of the kitchen pulled her away from a long tech career to open an award-winning boutique bakery in Seattle. Back in her native San Francisco, Jen has worked as a chef and recipe developer for clients ranging from food trucks to Michelin-starred restaurants. The chance opportunity to teach a cooking class two years ago led to her life’s great “Aha!” moment; she now teaches kids and adults throughout the Bay Area to make simple yet sophisticated food.
