Event Details

Introducing the Gadgets n Gizmos series, cooking class parties where we feature one or more of our fave kitchen appliances at home. We have fun with our toys but best of all, they make it easy for us to create sumptuous dishes when we're busy.  Playtime! 

Smoke it!
gizmo: stove top smoker
Creamy Asparagus soup with smoked salmon, Smoked Salmon Avocado salad, Fried Vegetarian Spring rolls, Raspberry Chocolate tart (with gluten-free option)

We love our stove-top smoker because it only takes twenty minutes to smoke Omega 3-rich salmon and we’re serving these beauties two ways just because we can.  We start with an asparagus soup inspired by a French meal Marlene had years ago, topped with smoked salmon and crème fraîche.  Our second course will be Fried vegetarian spring rolls followed by our main feature, Smoked salmon and Avocado salad. We finish with a Raspberry Chocolate tart.

*Note: We wiill do our best to keep the ingredients/menu exactly as written, but substitutions may be made occasionally due to market availability and our desire to find the freshest produce possible.

The Refined Cook

It’s clear Marlene and Jeff have a passion for food and for sharing everything they know about it, from interesting ingredients, to cooking techniques, to the whole dining experience. It was not just learning, but lots of laughing too!

-Tina P. (Roslindale)

Marlene & Jeff are founders of The Refined Cook, whose mission is to teach and bring healthy, gourmet cooking into homes through fun culinary social events (a.k.a. cooking class parties), offering a slower and sustainable lifestyle. In addition to being culinary educators, Marlene is a jazz musician who brings improvisation both in her music and in the kitchen; Jeff is a graphic arts designer, and a wine and whisky consultant and auctions purveyor. Class menus are eclectic, reflecting their love of world cuisines 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.

The Refined Cook experience is Creative, Beautiful and Fun, because we believe home- cooking and dining should be a pleasure to all our senses and a means to build community. For more info, visit
