Private cooking lessons/// Tailored to your skill level, your interests, your kitchen equipment. I can work with the complete novice on basics like knife skills, or with the more experienced cook who’s looking to try new things! Lessons can be skill or recipe/menu based. Also available: grocery shopping classes! Learn how to select foods, buy the right amount, and navigate your way through the market.
Group cooking lessons and parties/// Get a group of friends together and take a cooking class with me! Based out of the San Francisco culinary event space Cookhouse, I can do demos, or a hands on lesson.
Custom recipe creation/// Already a popular service, this is great for those of you who don’t live in the SF Bay Area. If you’re hosting a dinner party, attending one, or just want to surprise your significant other with a special dinner, I can write a recipe tailored to your skill level, budget, kitchen equipment, etc. I’ll work with you to consider every different angle: other dishes that might be served, dietary restrictions, and more!
Menu planning and design/// Full menu planning available for parties and for weekly meals alike. I’m also happy to work with you on food styling and set up, so that your guests will walk in and be WOWed.
Small event planning/styling/// When it comes to hosting a party that impresses, it’s all about the little unexpected details. Let’s talk about how we can make your guests feel like you went above and beyond (even when you didn’t).
Custom invitations and cards/// Paper-based and digital invitation and greeting card services available. Paper cards are all hand crafted with meticulous care.
Hand lettering/// Not quite calligraphy, but definitely not your everyday scribble. I love working with brides who want that hand lettered touch on their invites and placecards, but don’t want to blow the budget on a traditional calligrapher. This service is also great for thank you notes, holiday cards, etc. Ask me about my rates and for lettering samples!
Basic graphic design services/// Especially geared towards new bloggers, I can help you design a new header or about page graphic to give your blog a little oomph.
Blog/social media consultation/// New to blogging? Want some advice on how to treat it like a business? Need tips on how to grow your readership? Let’s connect.
And on that note, thank you. Yes, you. I wouldn’t and couldn’t be doing all this without the support of the community here on vmac+cheese. You guys inspire me in ways you can’t even imagine. Thanks for making it so fun to write here everyday, and helping me have the courage to do all this! Cheers to the future…so far 2012 is off to a rollicking start!
PS — Will be back later today with a fun little color post, though I completely acknowledge, that’s not quite as exciting as this!
