Cooking Demonstrations

A Cooking Class...in your own Home!

Established in 2002, Culinary Inspirations (www.culinaryinspirations.com) is rapidly becoming the nation’s largest in-home provider of cooking entertainment.  Culinary Inspirations Instructors are Professional Personal Chefs who have a passion for teaching and have completed the training necessary to earn the title of Instructor for the Culinary Inspirations Company.  You can be assured that your Culinary Inspirations Experience will be an enjoyable, memorable and unforgettable affair.  Chef Gary
 is a Certified Culinary Inspirations Instructor.

A coordinator provides their home kitchen and gathers friends for a Cooking Class or Inter-Active dinner party. The coordinator and Chef Gary work together to plan the class choosing from a curriculum based on special themes or developing a customized program.

While teaching the two hour class, Chef Gary, mixes a blend of Culinary Inspirations’ culinary techniques, insights and his own unique culinary experience.  The informal setting of the home allows students to participate, ask questions, and taste the finished dishes. Beautiful full color recipe cards are provided so that students will then be able to recreate the menu and experience at home.
