Hands On Instruction From a Chef


By Cari Martens

Love cooking, and want to know more? Find it difficult to get to a class or want more hands on instruction than you can usually get? How about bringing the lessons right into your own kitchen? We’re seeing it more and more – personal instruction from a chef as a way to find new ways and recipes to cook.

The Boston Globe highlighted the growing trend recently, featuring Glam Foods and Chef German Lam. The article says that Lam helps “with knife skills and saute techniques, and with intangibles, including his philosophy: enjoying what you’re doing.”

One of the fascinating insights in this trend is that people want to learn more than the basics of measuring. They want to learn to use their senses in cooking, to be able to smell and taste and know what is missing.

Lam’s lessons start at $150, which includes instruction for up to three dishes.
