D’Lish Demos and Classes


IMAG0531Prepare for a different class experience. Here at Local D’Lish we really believe in keeping things as simple and D’Lish as possible. Our goal is to help participants “build their own culinary muscles and intuition”.  Our classes are a casual experience that combine instructor demonstrations with class participation. Everyone will walk out the door with some new recipes and great tips and techniques to use at home. We will learn how to use local, seasonal produce and the delicious creations of local food artisans in new, interesting, entertaining and healthy ways. Local chefs, caterers, foodie gurus and experts will share their ideas, artistry, techniques and talents. Our classes are focused on using fresh food with a minimalist approach to cooking.  We won’t wow you with the latest bells and whistles for your kitchen but we will serve up some amazing dishes. It truly is amazing what you can make with simple fresh food.  Our classes are unique, fun, affordable and designed to offer something for everyone. All of our classes focus on deliciously simple cooking menus, dishes and techniques.

We are currently adding several classes. Is there a class you are interested in but it is full? Email us at class.localdlish@gmail.com and we will help you to get into the class of your choice.
