So, you’ve been looking for fun cooking classes? I’m very happy to announce that I am offering a pre-paid gift certificate for private, in-home culinary instruction, for all “kids” ages 6 to 100 (even those “kids” over 100 are welcome!)
Here’s the deal: you just go to the link below (my ‘Square’ business page - Wanderlust NW Catering Co.) and purchase the certificate in increments of $75. Each $75 certificate is good for a private 2.5-3 hour cooking lesson for 2 kids age 6-13, or 1 ‘adult’ age 14 & up. This includes all of the ingredients / materials for the class. Gratuities are totally optional. You can buy a certificate for as many as 10 adults or 20 kids! (up to $750 per certificate) if you wish to host a larger group, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We then schedule the class at your convenience (anytime before May 15th, 2019.)
I want to emphasize this point: You do NOT need a “professional” kitchen to host a small cooking lesson at home. Literally any home kitchen will be great! I am willing to do a class as small as 1 adult / 2 kids at a time. Or get some friends together - more students equals more fun, but this makes it very easy on you to schedule a fun, informative, & personal cooking lesson. See list of class ideas below (or think of a custom class idea or some technique you have always wanted to learn!) Of course each class ends with a delicious meal created by the students!
Some details on filling out the form: This link is just the payment form, so you can put yourself down as both the ‘Recipient Name’ & ‘Your Name’ - I’m going to be mailing a hard copy gift certificate to the actual recipient, so if you want to surprise somebody, put their mailing address in the ‘Personal Message’ box and they will receive the hard copy in the mail (I won’t put the $ amount on the certificate, just how many people are pre-paid plus instructions on how to contact me to schedule the class.) If you want to receive the physical / hard copy of the certificate, put your mailing address in the ‘Personal Message’ box. (If there is any confusion, please contact me before you purchase.)
