After numerous requests from readers & instagram followers I am so excited to share that I will be starting mini workshops at Noni’s Place. The focus of the workshops will be to cover various areas of cooking and entertaining. These workshops will be for all levels but mostly targeted toward the home cook who needs a little help and inspiration in the kitchen. I am neither a professional chef nor a graduate of culinary school; instead I have years of cooking experience in my family home to my current home. Along with cooking I have developed a strong love and knack for the entire entertaining process including setting up tables, floral arrangements and other DIY aspects that add to the ambience of a gathering. Having worked for many years in public relations for luxury brands I handled many niche intimate events that further developed my experience and love for elegant place settings and tablescapes. I love stylish entertaining and most people often feel the whole process is too daunting. I will be showing you easy ways to entertain beautifully with everyday items just by getting a little crafty and creative. I am so excited to share my ideas with others who are ready to boost their cooking and entertaining skills!
What happens in the workshops?
Each workshop will have a theme that integrates cooking and an aspect of entertaining. Themes are customizable based on individual needs and requests. Each workshop will last from 1 1/2 to 3 ½ hours depending on the theme of the menu and set up. Most workshops will include three dishes (appetizer, main course & dessert), but can vary according to the theme. For example, if it’s a cocktail party we will focus more on appetizers and beverages rather than a three-course meal. Participants will go home with copies of what was covered for future reference. I would like to keep each workshop with a maximum of two to three participants in order to keep an intimate and casual vibe. I have a humble sized apartment and we will work on my kitchen counter. This isn’t your “culinary school” set up where everyone has their own stove; it’s more of a collaborative effort together as a group. It’s a completely open forum and relaxed environment.
If you are interested in signing up or finding out more information on themes, how it works, or just to say hello, please email me at: email@example.com
Looking forward to hearing from you!
