Affirmation is good, very good.

  As a new small business one of our greatest assets is the word-of-mouth advertising you have given us.  Though social media can trigger mixed emotions; thanks to many of you it has helped our reputation grow.  If you have “liked” our Facebook page, thank you.  If not, please take a moment and do so.  If you come to a class and happen to take a few photos; please do share.  We will soon have 500 likes on our Facebook page and almost daily someone mentions to us a photo or comment they saw on our page.  If you are telling your friends about us without social media, we appreciate that too.  Thank you so very much for helping us grow!

Our New Number

IMG_0957Our business now has a new telephone number: (850)264-2308 (local to Tallahassee).  Please note your records and use this to contact our school or Chef Jessica.  If you prefer we can also be reached via email:  info @ KitchenAble.net  (without the spaces).  Thank you!

Introducing Plate and Palate

Plate PalateIf you have attended at cooking class at KitchenAble; you have probably heard Jessica say “It is culinary art, not culinary science” (Except when it comes to baking).  Hopefully you have also noticed that as the cooking cottage has evolved we have included many beautiful pieces of art from local artists and artisans in our décor.  Both food and art encourage us to be creative, relax, and bring enjoyment to others.

We are so excited to announce that we will now offer you the opportunity to enjoy a unique artistic experience at KitchenAble that involves both food AND painting.  On September 24 we will have our first Plate and Palate ClassSuzanne Conner, one of the incredibly talented featured artists at our cottage, will guide participants as they create an original painting and afterward a delicious gourmet lunch will be served.  The class fee of $55 will include a full meal, beverages, and all necessary art supplies.  For this we will have a very French theme as we enjoy food and music from France while creating our own Eiffel Tower painting.  We hope you can join us but please don’t delay when you register– space is very limited!
