"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."
With those wise words in mind, head on over to Chef Alyssa's Kitchen to learn how to feed yourself, and others, with some darn good cookin'. She offers a variety of classes ranging from beginner to intermediate plus, and in topics ranging from Basic Knife Skills to French Cuisine. Classes involve learning technique and, of course, devouring what you've made. Although Chef Alyssa looks young, she has a wealth of experience. She's cooked at the James Beard House (the foodie equivalent of "making it") and she was previously the executive chef at Fern.
