A hands-on in-person cooking class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer. This class is limited to 12 students. Review our registration and cancellation policies here. Proof of full vaccination is required at the door. Masks are recommended.


Do you have a cast iron pan? You should have a cast iron pan. They are versatile, affordable and virtually indestructible. You can bequeath them to your great-grandchildren. This isn’t something the common non-stick pan can boast. 

Yet, cast iron can be intimidating. People may worry about the maintenance. Or they may only feel comfortable doing simple sautes in them. 

Time to broaden your repertoire! In this class Marie will show you how to take care of the pans, how to season them and considerations when using acidic foods. 

Bonus: every recipe will be made using both cast iron AND a different pan. This will allow you to really see the difference the cooking vessel makes.
