So what are the Courageous Cooking Sessions?

One-off, bespoke experiences built to inspire creativity and skills in the kitchen!  For you, your family/friends, or your team!

Virtually connect with your people, and share your love of cooking together during this time of physical distancing.  Get together, reconnect with your social circle, and cultivate nourishing experiences from afar.

All of the workshops we offer are available one-on-one, in small groups, or for larger virtual gatherings (such as corporate virtual meetings, retreats, etc).

You and your people can ask all the questions your heart desires.  With ZERO judgement.

Our mission?  To access you inner courageous cook, one lesson at a time.  Also?  Who doesn't want to cook virtually in such a marvelous, and historic kitchen during a global pandemic AND protect some history while we are at it?

How will this all be delivered?

 * You and/or your group will meet us on Zoom!  So we can see each other, watch your techniques and give feedback.  You'll be able to ask questions, and get instant response from us!

* One week before you or your group's experience, we will send you the shopping and equipment list needed to execute your dishes beautifully!  

* ALL workshops will be recorded so that you will get a recording of everything to keep and send to the people you bring with you!

* Workshops will be 2-2.5 hours depending on you and your gruo

* All individual classes come with a small care package from our favorite spice company Burlap & Barrel.

* We're happy to organize sending unique ingredients to your group (for an extra fee) so you can just sit back, and relax knowing they will have a care package, and everything they need arrive at their door step. 

We cater to all sizes of groups
One-on-One or Singular Households
One other zoom window can join the workshop.  So your entire pod, in the same location can get involved!  Bring the kids, your friends, family, whatever feels safe to you.

For the same price. Ideal for individuals and households.  
Small Group

Great to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and other milestones social distancing with friends.  Or gather a group of friends you haven't seen in a while and cook together!

You can have up to 10 zoom windows join.  (Participants can be more than that! Just 10 households.  If you're less humans, worry not.  We make it worth your while in spices from our friends at Burlap & Barrel)
Larger Groups, Corporate Events, and Team Meetings
Have a larger gathering you want us to do?  WE Can!

Larger groups, simply message us!

For team experiences and corporate gatherings, we are flexible on the ideal size and numbers!  We can build break out rooms, host friendly competitions between departments.  You tell us about your corporation and we'll build a perfect package for you!

Just SOME ideas for your personalized cooking workshop

You'd be bored if we shared ALL our ideas here. :) 
Handmade, Gorgeous, Foolproof Pasta

Always wanted to master the art of fresh pasta?  And play with color and flavors?

Well, never fear!  Makenna is here!  She's a graduate of the Cordon Bleu and a small pasta academy outside of Genoa.  And she *knows* her pasta.

Together we'll make two types of pasta:  beetroot & laminated with flours and fresh herbs.  Then we'll make two sauces.  A bright herbaceous sauce for the beetroot, and a light lemon-y cream sauce for the laminated.

 Moroccan-Inspired Lamb Shoulder, Tomato & Crispy Chickpea Salad, & Fluffy Couscous.

Need a little spice in your life?  Let's travel to Morocco and try new spices and flavors.

We'll marinate the lamb, make some elements of the salad, start the lamb, finish the salad, make the couscous, and then wait for the lamb. This is perfect for a gathering of family or friends!

While this class will only be two hours, the lamb shoulder will take a bit longer to cook. Perfect for a mid-afternoon 'dinner' or late night supper.

Apero Hour!  The Art of the Almost No-Cook Meal

Want to feel like you're dining at a marvelous Italian restaurant al fresco?

I hear you.  Us too.

That's why we created this class.  While it leans towards French inspired flavors, the idea here?  To have a low-cook meal, to share with your pod.

We'll make a cold tomato soup  (Makenna's much beloved tomato cream which ironically has no cream). We'll talk charcuterie, we'll talk cheese, and we'll talk plating.  We'll also make a mushroom walnut paté.

Want something more customized?  Have something else in mind?  We can do pretty much anything you can imagine.  Just send us an email to hello at la peetch dot com  if you want to chat before booking.
While you might not be able to visit La Pitchoune or the South of France right now...We can bring the magic TO YOU.

*  Learn a new skill from the seasoned pros at the Courageous Cooking School.

* Schedule a time to organize your pantry, and help us plan a new collection of spices, vinegars, etc.

* Plan a virtual get together.  Invite your family and friends.

* Have a team meeting to forget social distancing, bond with your team, build camaraderie, and wonder at the historical kitchen.
