Cooking Classes in Tampa, FL

personal chef tampa

Justin-Thyme Personal Chef Service provides exciting individual or group cooking classes to the Tampa bay Area!

Learn secret techniques used by professional chefs! Your personal chef will guide you through the principles of fundamental cooking methods that you can depend on for a lifetime! We came up with our interactive cooking classes to teach a wide range of cooking styles, techniques and ingredients to individuals or better yet, groups of friends!

Our cooking classes have since evolved from a hands on instructional session to a new type of dinner party focusing on restaurant style plate presentation along with useful tips and behind the scenes tricks used by professional chefs. The concepts and professional techniques learned will not only improve cooking skills, but also strengthen confidence, creativity and imagination.

The cooking class begins with a discussion of the days' menu along with a run down of the "prep list." Students then learn to chop, dice, whisk and cook their way through the recipes of the day, with the chef providing experienced hands and guidance. The work for the individuals is simple and exciting. After the food preparation is complete, students get to enjoy the fruits of their labor. The class is wrapped up with a brief open discussion where students have a chance to ask any questions about the day. Clear and easy tips on shopping and handling for new and exotic foods and flavors are provided, as well as entertaining and wine pairing ideas. Each cooking class is about 3 hours. All requests are considered.
