Join Katie in her Two Aprons Cookery kitchen in Lexington, Massachusetts, for small group cooking classes that are fun, entertaining and informative. All levels of experience and all ages are welcome. Recipes are well-tested and the goal is for you to leave with the confidence to try these recipes at home. Hands-on participation is encouraged, though not required. You’ll not only learn how to prepare the recipes but gain equipment recommendations, shopping tips, make-ahead suggestions and kitchen hacks – even the most seasoned home chefs will learn something new. After about 2 ½ hours of instruction we’ll gather around Katie’s dining table to eat (and discuss!) all the dishes we’ve created. Looking for a private class? Check out my private event offerings.
VIRTUAL CLASSES ARE HERE!
Pad Thai + Garlicky Green Beans
Thur, June 4, 5:30-7 PM
Join me for a virtual class where we’ll cook dinner together, at home. Take the class by yourself or get your family members to join in. We’ll start at 5:30, make Pad Thai and then Garlicky Green Beans, then you’ll be ready to sit down and eat your dinner in the comfort of your own home around 7pm. The dinner serves about 4 people and can be made vegetarian. Once you sign up, you’ll receive the recipes as well as a shopping list, equipment list and instructions for any prep to do beforehand. Zoom link will be sent out the day prior to the class. Pricing is per family.
30(ish) Minute Meals
Wed, March 18, 10:30 AM | Thur, March 19, 6:30 PM
Who isn’t short on time when it comes to getting dinner on the table? In this class we’ll make a variety of recipes that are quick, healthy and packed with flavor. All perfect for weeknight meals. The recipe I’m most excited about is One-Pan Cherry Tomato and Basil Linguine – noodles cook along with the sauce at the same time in the same pan….does it get any easier or quicker than that? Big Salad with Grains is a super adaptable salad that combines lettuce with grains, roasted vegetables, raw vegetables, avocado, hardboiled eggs and nuts – it’s a true dinnertime entree salad. Other recipes are Parchment-Baked Greek Salmon & Zucchini with Feta, Oven-Baked Chicken Fajitas, and finally Butternut Squash, Spinach and Lentil Curry.
Homemade Ravioli + More Italian Favorites
Wed, April 15, 10:30 AM | Thur, April 16, 6:30 PM
In this class we’ll be cooking up a feast of Italian favorites. Starting with a Tomato Basil Tartlet, a delicious Bolognese Sauce (that doesn’t require all-day simmering), homemade Spinach & Cheese Ravioli, Roasted Broccoli with Gremolata and ending on a sweet note with Tiramisu. The homemade pasta is definitely the highlight! It’s so fun learning how to make the dough, rolling it out, then filling it with the spinach and cheese mixture. Hope to see you for this class in the Two Aprons cucina:)
Kids Cooking Class – April break
Mon, April 20 / Wed, April 22, 10:00-1:00PM
Do you have kids that like to bake or cook? Or maybe they haven’t done much in the kitchen, but want to have some fun and learn a bit?. Then sign them up for this kids class offerred during the April school break. We’ll be cooking up DIY Calzones – kids will make a cheese filling then add ingredients of their choice like pepperoni, mushrooms, peppers, etc. Since this is a lunchtime class, they’ll eat their calzones during the class for lunch. Then they’ll bake a mini Banana Bread loaf which they can take home followed by Vanilla Cupcakes and Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. They’ll frost and decorate the cupcakes, learning some fun techniques along the way. Note this class is open to kids 7 and older. Please notify me of any food allergies prior to the class at email@example.com.
