What to Expect:
Harvest Kitchen classes are entirely hands-on rather than demonstration and are taught by Jean Jones, MPH, RD and Sherry Swanson. In each class, you’ll learn how to prepare 4 recipes from start to finish. We are passionate about using fresh, local ingredients and you’ll learn where to source and select the best that Connecticut has to offer. You’ll learn new cooking techniques, tips and tricks. You will finish each class with new skills, fond memories, and a greater level of confidence in the kitchen and maybe even a few new friends. Class size averages 12 people. We supply all ingredients, tools, aprons, and of course, recipes. A full meal and three wines are served in regular cooking classes, with a hands-on cooking time of about 90 minutes.

What to Wear for Cooking Class:
Comfortable clothing and flat, closed-toe shoes are required for your safety and comfort. Please avoid high heels, sandals and long loose sleeves.

$75.00 per person. A full meal & wine are included in the cost. Additionally, you keep your wine glass, class recipes, and apron.
