Culinary Arts Studio



Food can be a gateway into understanding a culture from the inside and breaking down stereotypes. People eat many of the same ingredients  eggs for instance  but they prep them differently.

Instructor Nadja Peschke will give you just a taste of her travels  India, Nepal, Norway, Germany, France, Italy, Spain  and the recipes she has collected. Her German heritage has "always lent an open-minded sense of food preparation and tastes."
