Make a crispy and aromatic soffritto for paella base. Achieve texture and flaky lamination on croissants. Delicately combine without breaking the elements of the sauce. Properly temper your chocolate for a glossy finish and a satisfying snap. Front Range has many classes to help you develop these skills and others you want to hone. No desire to be a professional chef is required. All you need is the desire to spend some time relaxing and enjoying yourself.
Now that the post-pandemic restrictions are gone, it’s time to go out and learn new skills. You can take classes by yourself, on a date, with your best friend, with a group of best friends, with your kids (grown up or not), and even with your co-workers. There are some classes that are perfect for any of these groups to savor in the New Year.
Cooking according to dietary needs
Chef Jessica Bella has focused on creating nutritious meals that accommodate dietary preferences and restrictions that clients and their families may have. We take this to the next level by offering a cooking class experience. Classes can be customized regarding date, time, number of attendees, and class focus.
Recreational Cooking and Baking Classes
One of Boulder’s most famous daily cooking classes, Food Lab wants to help people connect with what they can do in the kitchen. Her three-hour themed classes range from nights in Napa to date nights in Paris, Spanish tapas, paella, and Moroccan cuisine. We also have children’s workshops during the holidays and after school, as well as children’s birthday parties with add-on experiences for adults. Food Lab products can sell out quickly, so book in advance. At-home learning for both kids and adults is available, inspired by the necessities created by the pandemic.
