General Class Descriptions
Hands-On Classes.From soup to nuts, Pans on Fire offers hands-on classes covering an ever-changing range of cuisines and cooking styles. This means YOU'RE doing the cooking! With the keen guidance of experienced instructors, you'll prepare a three or four course meal in most classes. THEN, everyone sits down to eat! Menus focus on easy-to-find ingredients and time-saving steps. Minimum class size for most classes is 6. Most evening classes are paired with wine or beer and last about 3 hours.
Demonstrations. From time to time, Pans on Fire hosts executive chefs, restaurateurs, cookbook authors and others. Learn the tips, tools and techniques of these culinary specialists, most of whom will lead heavy tasting to full-meal demonstration classes. Avg. 2-3 hours.
Flash Classes. Once or more per month, Pans on Fire runs a Flash Class program on a culinary topic--maybe a way to use a prolific zucchini harvest or ideas for seasonal appetizers. These demonstration programs are usually an hour in length and include recipes and tastings.
Kids in the Kitchen. Programs for juniors, tweens and teens, as well as for younger children when accompanied by an adult are offered year-round, including kids camps during the summer months. Class length, topics and tuition vary.

In our hands-on classes for safety and sanitation reasons, we ask that you wear long pants, a shirt with sleeves, and comfortable, closed-toe shoes.
