The Naked Bite 4-Week Custom Cooking Courses are perfect for adding a great new repertoire of skills and recipes to your kitchen. These classes also include education about ingredients and health tips that will inform you on how to make better food choices when you are out in the world.

We also offer one-time Private Cooking Classes, or for larger groups, Cooking Parties

How it Works

  • 3 hours of instruction each week, for 4 consecutive weeks
  • Hands on classes held in your kitchen, the environment you will cook in the most
  • Participants will learn various cooking techniques as well as options and ideas about how to use the same recipe in multiple ways, exchanging veggies and spices for a whole new take on the same approach.
  • Great for accelerated learning and a more intimate setting for 1 – 4 participants
  • Each class focuses on one category, choose 4 total*: Salads, Dips & Sauces, Side Dishes, Main Courses, Breakfasts, Desserts & Baked Goods
  • Customize each class by choosing 3-5 recipes within each category (See sidebar of this page)
  • Chef does the shopping, teaches, and cleans up. You cook and eat!
  • Groceries are billed separately, but you keep the leftovers (prepared food and groceries)

*Additional classes may be added to the Course once you have started your series.
