I demo EVERY recipe. I DO NOT use pre recorded videos and talk over them as a way to teach classes. We all work together. -This recipe is easily adaptable to fit different eating/meal styles (ie: Greek yogurt can be used instead of mayo, meat is optional, low sodium taco seasoning vs regular is readily available etc). -Learners should have some basic experience chopping, dicing, assembling and mixing. -We will cook the pasta in class. If you have a concern, please assist during class with...

Hello my name is Mrs. Lisa. I am the instructor for this class. 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 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 25 years old and currently in Medical School to become a Forensic Pathologist. 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.

Parental guidance is needed in assisting the learner in the kitchen as students will be using knives, and other kitchen equipment. We will use stoves and other cooking equipment. Parents should be available in case of accidents or emergencies and ensure the learner knows how to properly operate the kitchen equipment. We will discuss safety in class. All cameras must be on during the entire class so that I can support and assist each student in their cooking/baking experience as well as oversee their safety. Outschool policy is that parents and unenrolled learners remain off-camera and only the enrolled learner may participate. 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 message the instructor for any questions. Learners will be instructed in food safety and kitchen safety during class.
