Yes, you could take a cooking class from one of those “big schools” – you know, the ones with the fancy utensils and overly poofy chef’s hats. But how much can you really learn by simply watching from a table with 30 other people? Research (okay, my psych-major daughter) says that if you’re like most people, the answer is almost nothing. My classes, on the other hand, are 3 hours of fun, food and hands-on learning, in a very small setting (1-4 students). They range from the very basics, to the very advanced!
- Gift Certificates are available and make wonderfully unique gifts for:
Weddings/Anniversaries: remember, food is love!
Graduations: send your grad into the world with the ability to cook more than instant ramen
Birthdays: a fun and different way to celebrate – same delicious food, but no restaurant crowds or noise!
Mothers/Fathers Day: so much better than another tie or manicure
Class prices start at $240 (total) for 1-4 people (divide that by 4 people and it comes to only $60 per person) and that includes all food, recipes, and approximately 3 hours of hands-on instruction. All of the food you prepare is yours to take home...be sure to bring some "to go" containers!
Please note that beginning January 1, 2024, the price for classes in my La Jolla kitchen is now $240 (or $60 per person, based on a 4-person class). I’ve tried to avoid raising my prices for quite a while, but as we all know, the price of everything has skyrocketed, and I no longer feel that I have a choice when it comes to balancing those costs with continuing to make sure all of my classes use the freshest ingredients. It has always been my goal to keep my classes accessible to everyone, and I am so grateful to all of you who keep coming back to my kitchen! If you’ve already purchased or booked a class, no worries - this price increase will only impact future bookings. Thank you so much for understanding, and I hope to cook with you soon!
How about a party at your home?
Wouldn’t it be nice if all you had to do for your next party was choose the date and the guest list (okay, easier said than done) and the rest would magically be done for you?? Call EATSIES and that’s exactly what will happen, with me as your trusty fairy godmother!
I’ll bring the party to you with a hands-on cooking class, where your guests will not only learn to cook, but will actually prepare the entire meal! Buying chips and dip is SO last year.

"I’m torn between wanting to tell everyone and wanting to tell no one about Chef Teri…. My 11-year-old and my 14-year-old recently took 2 cooking classes with Chef Teri, each with a small group of their friends, for a total of 4 different classes and 14 different girls. All the girls had a blast, and they came home with the confidence and skills to cook these items for themselves. We’re talking fresh, healthy, delicious, ethnically varied food that you would learn how to make in an adult cooking class. I’m a big fan." -Tara N., La Jolla, CA
