Founded by Madeline Dudek, a former chef at Gramercy Tavern and NYC high school teacher, A Plate of Mind strives to not only teach valuable and exciting cooking skills, but to boost the kitchen confidence of our rising chefs.
Perfect for Valentine's Day or just any special night, enjoy a 2-hour cooking lesson taught by Madeline (either in the comfort of your own home OR virtually). We will make a full meal (dinner & dessert) for two, then can sit down and enjoy a romantic dinner.
Classes are tailored to your specific interests and skill sets. Once purchased, consult with Madeline to decide on the type of cuisine you'd like to learn to make.
Examples include: seasonal American cuisine, homemade dumplings or pasta, vegetable focused meals, or even recreating dishes from your favorite restaurant. Madeline will make it happen!
If you can't go out this winter, bring the meal home and have date night in. She'll help you create the dinner and dessert, you just have to provide the wine.
