Cooking School

Prepare for a different class experience. Here at BTS really believe in bringing back the art that is cooking. Katie’s goal is to bring new ingredients and flavors to your kitchen, show you that cooking can be simple and help participants “build their own culinary intuition”. Classes are a casual experience that combine instructor demonstrations with hands on class participation. Everyone will walk out the door with new recipes and great tips and techniques to use at home and great coupons to shop BTS for the ingredients you’ll need to recreate the dining experience at home.

You’ll learn how to use local, seasonal produce when possible and the delicious creations of food in new, interesting, entertaining and healthy ways. Our classes are focused on using fresh food with a minimalist approach to cooking. Katie won’t wow you with the latest bells and whistles for her kitchen but we will serve up some amazing dishes that anyone can make themselves. It truly is amazing what you can make with simple fresh food. Katie’s classes are unique, fun, affordable and designed to offer something for everyone. All of our classes focus on deliciously simple cooking menus, dishes and techniques.

We are currently adding several classes. The majority of classes are “kid friendly”. If you would like to take a class with your child 8 years or older please call to make arrangements.

All classes are currently held in the wonderful basement kitchen at the First Congregational United Church located at 429 Main Street, McGregor, IA. Classes are not affiliated with First Congregational United Church

Classes make great gifts! Questions? Call BTS or, of course, stop in. Thanks for your interest and see you soon!

Cost: $30-$100 per person/ per class.
