I provide virtual and in-person customized cooking lessons and personalized meals for foodies of all ages and abilities. I teach private lessons as well as small group workshops (www.teachingtable.net/events for current listings). As a former educator and a trained chef, I understand how to prepare both my lessons and gourmet yet approachable food!

I've had Laura prepare two different dinners for two special events and I couldn't be more satisfied. She's terrific to work with, from suggesting menus to allowing for allergies and general quirks to the actual preparation and service of the meal. We all loved her food as well as her mood. At the first dinner, one of the guests was unexpected delayed by an hour and she was still able to serve the meal an hour later in perfect condition and with a completely easygoing manner about the delay. I would certainly hire her again. More...

Amazing dinner!! Laura worked with me patiently while we picked the menu and gave advice based on the season and freshness of ingredients. Once she walked through the door she was hard at work and delivered an amazing dinner. Every guest told me how much they loved the food. Look forward to working with Laura again in the near future.

My signature dish would have to be my Nonna's Gnocchi. I make these in a variety of ways, using potatoes, sweet potatoes, squash, pumpkin and even broccoli stem. They always come out fluffy and decadent with an herb brown butter sauce.

I offer a phone consultation to each client to get to know their preferences, dietary needs and goals for their specific event or lesson. I then propose a variety of dishes and cooking techniques from which to choose and tailor the dishes based on their needs.

What I love most about my work is witnessing the confidence my clients gain from their cooking lessons!

As a teacher turned chef, I wanted to marry my two passions of food and education into one and inspire others to cook more, shop less and waste nothing.

I am a thoughtful chef instructor. I prepare cooking lessons to meet the needs of my clients and consider how the student will learn best and feel challenged and accomplished with what they have created.

Currently, all Teaching Table services are being offered remotely. We offer private cooking lessons, at home cooking parties for remote groups (6-50 email addresses/households) and a range of workshops updated monthly (see www.teachingtable.net/events)

We only offer remote/virtual services and are not seeing any customers in person or visiting any homes.
