About
Enjoy a private and authentic cooking class in a local Detroit home with your host Lynne. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Your cooking class will take place in your host's home kitchen. After cooking, you will enjoy your meal together. An avid cook and entertainer, Lynne was inspired by her parents who were both excellent cooks, and has been in the specialty food and wine industry for decades. Lynne prefers eating at home than going out and has been cooking farm to table meals before it was a thing. She has always had a small herb and vegetable garden and shopped at local farmers’ markets. Fresh and high quality ingredients are essential to her cuisine. Lynne offers Mediterranean inspired cuisine that is flavorful and simple. Lynne and her husband live in a great space in Detroit that they enjoy sharing with friends. The best part of hosting for her is meeting new people from all over the world.

What to expect
  • Meet your host Lynne at her home in Detroit, a unique residence that used to be a bank built in the 1920s with a lovely patio. Sip on a refreshing drink as your host shares stories about living in Detroit before joining her in her kitchen, to learn to cook a Mediterranean inspired seasonal meal. As much as possible, Lynne uses fresh, local produce from her vegetable garden or that she purchases from farmer’s markets. During your hands-on cooking class, learn to knead, roll and grill flatbread, create a delicious salad and learn techniques involved in making sauces that accompany your main dish. A confidence-inspiring cook, Lynne encourages you to cook based on what you taste, see and smell. You will learn to cook three dishes from scratch during your cooking lesson that lasts about 1.5 hours. After cooking, sit down at the table to share the fresh, seasonal meal you helped prepare with Lynne. Your menu might include dishes such as sautéed summer corn with shitake mushrooms and garlic, trout from Lake Huron with a cilantro chimichurri and grilled flatbread with a yoghurt and cucumber sauce. Lynne knows a lot about wine and offers a natural wine pairing with your food.

Our evening was a blast! We learned to cook a mouthwatering, fresh, vegetarian (our choice) meal that was a delight to all of our senses. The colorful dishes were light with these wonderful and unexpected flavors. She broke down the steps for preparation so that we can recreate these delicious dishes at home for ourselves or for guests. Our cooking lesson was amazing and really hard to top, but being able to sit and enjoy our meal with our lovely host, Lynne, in her incredible home was priceless! We were even able to talk Mike, her equally delightful husband, into joining us, which rounded out this magical evening. The wine was pretty great, too! Does it sound like we are pleased? Absolutely! We would recommend this fabulous experience to anyone and everyone.
