New Fall classes are being scheduled and dates will be announced soon!
What people are saying about these classes:
"Chef Marko's Elegant Restorative Soups class was amazing. It goes without saying that the Saffron Kobacha Squash Soup, the Exotic Mushroom Soup and the Emerald City Soup with oregano, lime, and avocado were delicious. As important was Chef Marko's belief in the the ability of the food to restore and heal us. In my case the soups brought healing to my digestive system. One of my favorite lessons of the class was learning how make a basic vegetable broth and learning how to finish off the soup by balancing ingredients to enhance the flavor. I'm looking forward to taking another class." Kathy Goodwin
