Now Open-From Scratch Cooking School


In our kitchen you are always welcome. After years of giving advice to my clients on how to eat, I'm so excited to be getting in the kitchen with you. Too many times have I heard from my clients that growing up they were not welcomed in the kitchen or never encouraged to help prepare meals. It breaks my culinary heart to hear those words. I have such fond childhood memories that revolved around being in the kitchen that I believe that was why I chose to become a professional chef as my first career.


With this in mind, the intention of our cooking classes are to be fun and educational. No experience is required, we will teach you the knife skills required to accomplish the recipe we are teaching. What is awesome about taking a cooking class with us at From Scratch Cooking School, is our focus on nutritional education. Not only will you learn to cook deliciously healthy meals but you will learn the health benefits these foods will provide your body. 

I believe adults and kids will try new foods if they understand the impact these foods will have on their health AND if it tastes amazing.

View our upcoming class schedule at If our locations or class times are inconvenient for you, let us know, we love to travel and would be happy to offer a class in your home, school or business.

I look forward to seeing you in the kitchen,

Dr. Stanley
