Feeling creative?  Are you ready to cook your own paleo meals but don’t know where to start?  Do you lack confidence in the kitchen?

We offer private cooking lessons, customized to suit your tastes.  Chef Tricia Lewis, founder and owner of Gourmaleo, has almost 20 years of professional culinary experience and loves to share her knowledge with beginners and advanced foodies.  Learn tips from a pro in the comfort of your very own home: these intimate classes are designed entirely around your specific needs!

Private paleo cooking lessons also make a great gift for anyone: new parents, newly engaged couples, or a girls night!

The Basics

Step One:  The process starts with a phone call to learn what your goals are in the kitchen.  Love Asian food but no idea where to start?  Do you have food allergies?  Not sure if you own the right kitchen equipment?  We’ll cover it all on the phone ahead of time.

Step Two:  Chef Tricia will customize recipes for you and email you a grocery list of ingredients to buy.  The majority of these will be simple items you can find in any grocery store.  You also have the option to skip this step and have Tricia shop for, or with you, at an additional cost.

Step Three:  Chef Tricia arrives at your home and the lesson begins!  Plan on cooking everything yourself.  This is not a demo class.  Tricia will guide you through the entire process, but learning means doing it yourself, and it’s FUN!
