Want a lesson in cooking? I LOVE to cook. I was lucky enough to grow up with my Grandmother and Great Grandmother, and they were both excellent cooks. Over the years I have cooked my way through most of the cuisines of the world. And, I've cooked for special circumstances like: **100-200 people at camps and outdoor schools; **cocktail parties for the rich and famous; **weddings; **classes on cooking on a limited budget; **outdoor and campfire cooking; **open houses and other parties.
I've taught many beginner cooks to make the recipe of their dreams! Sign up for a class with me, let's decide on the menu you want to make, and I'll help you make it right in YOUR kitchen. I'll be with you virtually--all the way through the preparation of your recipe!

"Ezra is an amazing teacher! Being able to take classes from a master chef has been a real treat both for myself and my family. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and is able to explain techniques in a very concise way. His thoughtful and engaging instruction starts with basic cooking skills and advances to more difficult techniques. I finally feel comfortable making more complicated meals. He is also very patient and takes time to make sure that you really understand the nuances of preparing each dish. Would HIGHLY recommend his classes to anyone that is looking to acquire basic skills, on up to very difficult dishes. He is a true talent!!!"
