Cooking Classes

Mary Valle is a home chef and published cookbook author who loves sharing her passion for cooking, and in particular all things Mediterranean.

Mary offers private cooking classes in the comfort of your own home for just yourself or a small group of friends.

It makes sense to be learning how to cook in your own kitchen as this is where you will be preparing meals: in a home kitchen. Mary will discuss your needs, what you would like to learn and for how many people you cook for, whether that is for one, two or more.

In her hands-on cooking classes, Mary shares her techniques and tips so that you can walk away feeling confident to reproduce the recipes, adding your personal touch. All classes are tailored for your individual needs. Whether you are a beginner or looking for some inspiration for weeknight family dinners, Mary can assist.

Mary’s passion and focus in on the Mediterranean cuisine – it is fresh, healthy, comforting and diverse. All dishes are inspired by the current season’s produce so as to ensure the meals are as fresh as possible.

Classes run for 3 hours and in this time we will cook three dishes. All classes include enjoyment of all the dishes cooked during class as well as copies of the recipes that are cooked on the day.

Following the class, Mary is always happy to answer questions and any concerns about the recipes; she is also only an email away.

Mary’s classes are also the ideal gift idea for a kitchen tea, hen’s day or other significant celebration.

Note that ingredients are not included; you will receive a shopping list for the ingredients for you to purchase.

It is the responsibility of the participant to make sure all equipment is safe for use for the cooking class.
