Towards New Horizons

A goal is a desired result that a person or a system envisions, plans and commits to achieve: a personal or organizational desired end-point in some sort of assumed development. Many people endeavor to reach goals within a finite time by setting deadlines.

 

Goals can be long-term, intermediate, or short-term. The primary difference is the time required to achieve them.

Private Cooking Lessons

Group Cooking Classes

Learn to cook in the company of friends, and enjoy the company of friends while learning to cook. Chef Mike will bring all the necessary food ingredients and supplies, and will lead the group in a collaborative preparation of a customized gourmet culinary experience. Every group member will receive a list of recipes and, under Chef Mike’s guidance, work together in a relaxed and social atmosphere to prepare unique dishes.

 

Participants in this party will take home tangible skills and ideas that can be easily applied in their own kitchens. Group classes are ideal for a unique “girl’s night out”, couples gatherings, bridal showers and team building.

 

*All classes are BYOB, but every menu will have suggested wines that pair well with the dishes from local wine shops or celebrated wine experts.
