"Marlene and Jeff are great instructors and even better hosts. I was completely at ease working with them. And the food was great!"
David G. (Jamaica Plain)
"I consider myself a good cook and wasn’t sure what exactly I would learn from this cooking lesson. But learn I did. There were some technical tips, some food buying tips, and I made dishes that I had never made before which was great and expanded my repertoire. The atmosphere was congenial and supportive. And the food was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend Marlene and Jeff’s cooking classes and plan to take some more!"
Mary M. (Roslindale)
Marlene is Director and Instructor at Home Chef Workshop, whose mission is to teach and bring healthy, gourmet cooking into homes, offering a slower and sustainable lifestyle. She is also a jazz musician who appreciates improvisation in music and in the kitchen.
Jeff is a graphic artist and former wine consultant who has helped many a lost soul with wine pairing and buying tips that don't break the budget. His wry humor and eye for aesthetic detail are evident in his cooking, presentation, and sense of décor.
Jeff and Marlene will share their love of world cuisines culled from travels in Asia, Patagonia, the Himalayas, the Andes, the Amazon jungle, and most recently, their cycling trip through the French Dordogne region, home of foie gras and rustic gastronomy.
