Many local chefs and restaurants are now hosting cooking classes – folks like Jerry Pellegrino at Waterfront Kitchen, Neill Howard at Corner Pantry and others – classes are very popular. They are fun and interactive, you get to learn a new skill and usually taste what you prepare. Cooking classes make great gifts! I’ve taken many and I always learn something new. With the holidays quickly approaching (OMG, have you ordered your turkey?? I love Thanksgiving most of all!) more and more classes will be happening over the next few months.

Donna Crivello is one of those chefs in town with a great deal of experience as both a chef and restauranteur and she will offer two cooking classes in November and December. She’ll show participants how to prepare delicious dishes, share the finished creations (accompanied by specially-selected wines) with the class and also provide all of the recipes. Each class will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and the per person cost is $50. Space is limited. Reservations can be made by phone at 410-532-7611 or by email at [email protected]
