Cooking Classes

“No one believed the pies made with that dough were gluten free. I was amazed and impressed. Seriously. Try it.” – Evan Kleiman of the “Good Food” podcast about Annie’s pie

I love cooking; it is history, it is art, it brings communities together, and is obviously delicious. Having cookbook author Barbara Swell as a mother was a fantastic culinary education (we teach most of our classes together now, too!), and I also learned by running a cafe & bakery in Ireland, working with chefs on small farms in Italy, as well as apprenticing with a cheese maker on a mountaintop goat farm in Italy. Most of my classes are focused on Northern Italian cooking, cheese making and cooking over fire. They are all gluten-free and can be made to accommodate other dietary restrictions as well. At Log Cabin Cooking, we mostly teach classes to groups of 4-10 people upon request. Please get in touch if you would like to arrange a class for your group!

I regularly teach week-long cooking classes at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC, as well as at Log Cabin Cooking in Asheville, NC.
