In-home Cooking Classes and Market Tours
Custom designed classes or hands-on cooking team builds in your home, office, or other location (where facilities permit) Mexican ingredients and recipes are my specialty. Start with a tour of your local Latin market, learn about ingredients, then we'll head back to your kitchen to have some fun! (salsas mandatory, Margaritas optional!)

Classes with Pre-teens and Teens
Prepare your child for a healthy independence. Whether going off to university or to inspire healthy after-school snacking, learning to cook is a basic skill no young person should be without! One-on-one or small groups preferred. Classes are fully customized based on age, group size and goals.
"I had a great time at a cooking class with Margaret. She made me feel excited about different recipes, and the outcomes were amazing, too! Thank you, Margaret!"  
- Rowan Duim, 12 

"Margaret came to our home for a day of preparing a 4-course meal with my grandchildren Henry (12) and Immy (10). The children had decided that they wanted to cook Italian so Margaret prepared a menu that suited their requests. Margaret did all the shopping and arrived with the ingredients.Then, the fun began. Margaret taught the kids correct and safe handling of the chefs knife. They grated, chopped, peeled, sliced, stirred, and learned the correct terms for each part of the process. They proudly served the complete meal to our family of 6... and it was delicious!  When they returned to Boston they were able to recreate the dishes independently and with culinary flair. They loved the experience!"
