I love cooking and I am very enthusiastic about it. I still get excited over a beautiful cut of beef or the perfume of fresh cut basil. My teaching stems from my natural joy of cooking and using fresh ingredients. I'm patient, fun and I truly enjoy teaching my students to cook.

I also offer small party cooking classes where I teach 3 course dinners. These classes are limited to groups of 4 and are booked by using 105 minute session.

2 menu item classes for up to groups of six are booked using the 120 minute session

Please call for group rates of more than 6.

About Chef Stevie M.

Hi! I'm Chef Stevie. I’m a graduate of Walnut Hill College, one of Philadelphia's oldest Culinary arts schools. I loved my classes because every day was a new opportunity to see, touch and learn something new.

Teaching the art of cooking is one of my passions. Food brings people together and I love that about cooking for others.

Even after 20 years, I still get excited about exploring different cuisines. My classes are fun and informative. My students tell me that my zest for cooking is contagious and that they find themselves being more creative in other aspects of their life.

I've taught community cooking demos, groups and individual classes. I also enjoy cooking for small intimate gatherings. I’ve even had the pleasure of learning Molecular Gastronomy. Check out Wikipedia if you are interested in learning more about Molecular Cuisine.

When I'm not cooking, I enjoy growing my own food, raising chickens and enjoying nature.

FYI-Group classes are available; please contact Takelessons for pricing. Let’s get cooking! Cheers

Excellent session. Stevie comfortably helped a diverse range of skills through an Indian cooking class where everyone learnt something new and the final product was outstanding. Well done!

Cooking with Chef Stevie was an experience I will never forget. I am very technology challenged, she patiently troubleshooted my audio issues with me until success. While cooking she explained pros and cons of baking techniques at a level I could understand. Cooking with her I could see someone that has honed in on her style and knowledge about cooking. Her comfort made me comfortable and successful at baking. Family and coworkers loved the bread we made together.

Chef Stevie was amazing!!! From the planning stage to the day of full implementation, Chef Stevie was completely involved, making sure each element of our baking session met our desires. She was personable yet completely professional. Her knowledge as a chef was remarkable as she guided the entire session with helpful “pro tips” that made the experience that much more engaging and effective. Her use of online technology was stellar. She was able to display her cheerful and lively disposition in one screen while demonstrating each step of the baking session in another screen, giving us that personalized touch from start to finish. I recommend Chef Stevie without reservation. I’m looking forward to another session soon!

I loved the teacher, she was amazing and gave great tips. The only thing that wasn’t great was trying to connect online.

She was wonderful and easy to work with. We had a bit of a problem to get online but she and I stayed calm and got it worked out! She did alot of research on my altitude which I appreciated! The food tasted delicious! I am looking forward to our next lesson!

I used to eat take-out every night and generally felt overwhelmed whenever I walked into the kitchen.
I never knew that cooking could be fun until I met Chef Stevie. She's highly skilled, passionate, has a great sense of humor, and her classes are easy to follow. My cooking ability has definitely grown in our two semesters together.
Thanks Chef Stevie for your help!

I had a great time as Chef Stevie and the baking lessons. She had an initial conversation to understand my goals and expertise before creating a plan that was suitable for me. I had previous baking experiences but wanted to push myself beyond the basic comfort levels I was used. The lessons were tailored for me. The lessons became more complex as they progressed but Chef Stevie helped me throughout the entire process. Chef Stevie explained what were doing and to have fun in the process. We made some great baked goods including Buttermilk Biscuits, Whoopie Pies, Double Layer Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Filling, Lemon Meringue Pie, Apple Blossoms, Chocolate Eclairs, Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, and my new favorite Chocolate Molten Cake. My friends and family really enjoyed the results. They can't wait until I make more. I am glad that I took the lessons and Chef Stevie helped me become a better baker.

I crafted weekly menus for my clients. I sourced my ingredients from the Organic Butcher, Seafood on West Main; with fresh herbs from my garden and veggies from a local CSA. I sourced supplies on Saturday and prepared the dishes on Sunday for pick up that evening. Fresh, local and prepared superbly. My clients were students, professionals and families that preferred freshly prepared restaurant style meals to take out.
