What People Are Saying!

Pam's class was such fun! She was extremely informative and gave us so many useful tips. She clearly explained the things to watch for while cooking our salmon so that it came out perfectly. I know I will use her tips in the future. She was a warm and personable teacher.
A really great cooking experience.

~Margaret B., online class

Pam was an engaging, knowledgeable and enthusiastic cook with excellent communication skills. We had a relaxed, fun class and rewarded with delicious dishes, recipes and the desire to return for other cooking adventures. Without hesitation, I recommend taking any of her classes.
She is a cooking wizard!
~Patricia M., in-person class

Connect with others over the joy of food once again! Treat yourself to a cooking class experience.

You will learn restaurant-quality menus, and the skills to confidently prepare these special meals for family and friends in our in-person demo + dine and online cook-along cooking classes.

I'm Pam, half-century home cook, recipe developer, former restaurant pastry chef, and cooking instructor. I fell in love with the cuisine of the PNW thirty years ago, and I love to teach you how to bring it to your table, no matter where you live.

All experience levels are welcome and supported at our class workshops. You'll meet new friends, and we'll have fun in a casual learning environment. I hope to meet you soon!

Class Formats

Online cooking classes are cook-along in format. Students will receive an ingredient list, recipes, and equipment list 5-7 days prior to class. Classes are limited to 12 devices, so you get lots of individual support and attention.

In-person classes are demonstration in format, and include a light meal of the food we prepare and a glass of wine which you will enjoy in a country setting with a grand view of a vineyard, a lake, and across the southern Willamette Valley, just outside Eugene, Oregon. (Address provided upon paid class registration.) In-person classes are limited to six students.
