Hello my name is Mrs. Lisa. I am the instructor for this course. I teach baking classes for the department of recreation for my city to children with ages ranging from 5-15. Over the last almost 30 years I have taught cooking, baking and nutrition education to ages ranging from 2-92 years old, privately and in group settings; in person and virtually. My love for baking and cooking started out as a child in the kitchen with my Grandmother.  I went to Immaculata University where I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in food and nutrition science and minored in child development. I've been a practicing Registered Dietitian since 1993. I am currently working on a Masters in Nutrition in Marketing. Besides a formal education, I’ve also taken a series of culinary classes at the former Le Cordon Bleu-Boston, and many others. Mastering everything from French macarons, to Julia Childs Beef Bourguignon to tamales made from scratch are some of my biggest accomplishments in the kitchen. I own and cook from an ever growing library of cookbooks. Everything that I’ve learned along the way, I’ve shared with others as a food blogger, foodpreneur, educator, recipe writer and more. 

My style as an educator is to use evidence-based teaching and learning skills and make education fun and interactive along the way. My ultimate goal for each class, is to share my passion and enthusiasm and help learners build their confidence and knowledge base of not just cooking or baking, but the importance of respecting food and food science’s place in the kitchen as well as how we function as humans beings.

I love to cook, bake, travel and do anything else that involves spending quality time with family and friends. I am known for throwing great dinner parties. Food brings people together in kitchens and tables across the world. So many discussions happen here, from simple to complex. I've traveled with family all over Europe and the Caribbean and have so many more to explore. I am a wife and Mom of 1. Our Daughter is a Medical School Student. I’m very proud of my family, my life’s work and seeing the transformation of my students from the beginning of each class or session to the end. 
Young Chefs should be encouraged to prep toast and cut whole fruit ahead of class with their caregivers. Time spent should be no more then 5-10 min.
Bread/Toast Cut/whole fruit (purchased cut fruit can be used for class as well ie: apple slices) Spread-peanut butter, hazelnut, cream cheese etc Cut chesse/sliced meat Butter knife or spreader

25 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
A Parent should be on the premises to assist young chefs in the kitchen if needed. Parents should be available in case of accidents or emergencies. Outschool policy is that parents remain off-camera and only the enrolled learner may participate. Because of the nature of cooking and baking classes and safety, all cameras must remain on and learner and cooking area must be in focus. Families need to notify the instructor ASAP about any potential allergies. Most times, substitutions can be made for many. Each family is responsible for knowing what ingredients their family can have. Please contact the instructor for any questions.
