cooking lessons

lifelong learning

Whether you participate in a public or private lesson, learning to cook not only helps your food taste better, but it builds confidence in the kitchen. The more confidence you have, the more likely you will enjoy yourself during an evening of cooking healthy foods with your family, trying a new recipe, or hosting that dinner party! Lessons are the perfect way to explore the culinary world. Plus they are SO much fun! (Scroll below for group lesson calendar).

private custom lessons

Grab your significant other or a posse of friends for a custom private lesson in your home. We can customize a cuisine genre and menu that fulfills your culinary goals. I’ll be the guide, but YOU will do the cooking! Group size can range from 2 – 6 people depending on the kitchen size. Pricing depends on menu and group size.

“Couldn’t wait to share our recent experience with Erica and Tiny Town Culinary.  We did an in-home cooking class and had the BEST time making delicious food. I even learned great new cooking skills after being an avid home cook for over 40 years. Can’t wait to try another of her classes!”  –
