The best part of winter in New England is cozying up to a warm fire with a hearty, home-cooked meal! Learn how to create traditional, warming recipes that are easy to recreate in the comfort of your own kitchen. Why bundle up and battle the elements to eat out, when you have the skills to create a three-course meal at home?
In this lively, hands-on cooking class you will learn how to utilize the produce and products of local farmers and artisans. Guided by Chef Cleo, you will create an exciting three-course meal based on seasonal, local food, and increase your expertise in the kitchen through new knife skills, techniques, and flavor profiles.
Come ready to roll up your sleeves and get cooking! See below the dates, times and menus.

Cleo was born and raised in Washington, DC. She attended McGill University in Montreal and has a BA in Cultural Anthropology. After graduating, she moved back to DC and began working at local restaurants, such as Againn, a British Isles-inspired gastro-pub and Komi, a high-end Mediterranean restaurant. She has spent 2 summers as the Head Chef for the Hog Island National Audubon Society summer camp in Maine, working with local farms to bring fresh food to the Island and to happy campers. Cleo is thrilled to have the opportunity to cook and teach at Boston Public Market, with the whole Market to source from and the whole of Boston to serve.
At first glance, it might seem a strange road from cultural anthropology to cooking, but food and cooking are integral to the expression and transference of culture. As they say: culture begins at the table. By concentrating on serving local, sustainable foods, Cleo hopes to elevate the experience of the diner and to make a positive impact on the local food community.
