We have relocated our classes to Chef Dawn's residence and have limited the number of attendees to four and think you will find the cooking experience easier to translate to cooking in your own home and the dining experience to be more comfortable and less institutional
As Foodies we believe you learn by doing so all classes are completely hands-on. Get ready to jump right in. Chef Dawn will guide all participants through the steps to prepare and complete a dish. One group doesn't work on the appetizer and another on the dessert so you leave only knowing how to prepare one item on the menu. Once completed the dishes will be enjoyed by all in the dining room. As always, a take home recipe booklet will be provided.
DOABLE and DELICIOUS is our philosophy. Food can be made complicated and be accompanied by a list of ingredients long enough to fill a shopping cart, but we also know that great food can be made with little time or effort or ingredients. “Fancy” is delicious and a treat every once in a while, but we don’t consider them the norm as Foodies. We don’t want to discourage you from cooking by presenting a three page recipe. We want to encourage you to dive right in and look like a superstar.
Our goal is to provide a great social experience and enough knowledge to confidently return to your own kitchen and duplicate our class efforts or… leaping lizards… delve right in and create your own masterpiece.
It doesn’t matter if you have no knife skills or are unsure of the difference between a microplane, a microphone or a mandoline. Groups usually consist of the novice as well as the experienced. It all balances out. If you can’t cut an onion, we’ll teach you. If you are afraid to tackle this daunting task we’ll pass it on to someone else in the class.
In order to guarantee freshness, we purchase food for all classes the day before so we ask that you make your reservations 48 hours in advance. We hate to tell you a class is closed because we have already been shopping. Alternatively, there is a minimum number of students required for a class to take place. Don't procrastinate only to find out we had to cancel a class you really wanted to attend. Be sure to make your reservations as soon as possible. If you are thinking about it, call today. We are confident you will enjoy the evening.
Pre-registration is required for all classes. You can register for classes by filling out our online registration form and someone will call to get your confirmation info.
A credit card is required to guarantee your place in class.
If a class is full, we will be happy to place you on a waiting list and when we get 4 people on the wait list we will open an additional class.
There is a 48 hour cancellation policy to receive a credit for a future class. If you cancel with less than 48 hours until class time, no credit will be issued. Feel free to send someone to take your spot. Food has already been ordered for the class and cannot be returned.
If Foodies cancels the class for any reason, we will contact you by telephone or e-mail and issue a full refund.
Varies by class. Please refer to the on-line or printed class schedule.
Enrollment is limited.

I had a great time. I even ate my vegetables!! I would probably sign up again on my own for a techniques course on bread baking or pie making and would love to do another group activity in the future. Dawn and Todd were the perfect hosts and teachers and it was a very relaxing experience. Thanks a lot. - Marilyn
First off, thanks so much for a WONDERFUL class night. I don't think I've ever been exposed to so many unfamiliar food items at one time when I wasn't eating the food of another culture. I had a great time and loved expanding my culinary experiences! - Michelle
I absolutely loved the class tonight and know I will use every one of the recipes again and maybe for a party in the near future. - Terry
