Teaching a cooking classLooking for a great gift for a friend who loves to cook, or one who needs to learn the basics? How about a unique idea for entertaining? A private cooking class with Chef Royal is perfect for all occasions. You can opt for a one-on-one session with Royal, or host an entertaining and educational party. You will come away with some useful tricks of the trade, a better grasp of culinary technique and best of all, some new favorite recipes.

For newer cooks, Royal’s class on the foundations of cooking is a great starting point. He’ll inventory your kitchen, checking for the right tools, equipment and pantry staples that make cooking easier and more fun. He’ll provide a list of recommended kitchen equipment so you can add pieces when you’re ready. His list of pantry items means you will always be able to pull together an impromptu meal for surprise guests. For more experienced cooks, Royal can focus on a specific cuisine or technique you’d like to learn. 

All classes end with a fabulous four-course meal that students prepare while receiving hands-on instruction from Chef Royal. See the list below for ideas.
