We teach the science of cooking and modernist techniques in our high tech garage kitchen, aka The Gitchen. The ultimate goal of cooking is to make your food taste as good as it can while also making it aesthetically pleasing. Modernist techniques allow you to improve the flavor of ingredients and manipulate and present ingredients in ways not possible with conventional techniques. In our classes we will teach you the science behind the techniques and why they work, which will allow you to improvise on your own when you are back at home. The only requirement is curiosity!

Class testimonials:

"I had a great time with Bold Food.  You don't have to be a "foodie" to take this class--all you need is an appetite and an open mind.  I have a better appreciation for what goes on behind the kitchen doors, especially in how we think about innovative techniques and new flavors and textures.  Muffie is an enthusiastic and engaged instructor--there is no doubt her passion is food and she wants to share it with you!  Do yourself a favor and take a class!" - Anderson Ip, Bold Food customer

"The Bold Food class I attended was as much a science class as a cooking class but not like the science classes I remember from school.  It was more like recess!  We got to play with our food and get creative.  While Muffie explained modernist techniques, she allowed us to experiment with various ingredients and novel tools and appliances.  And afterward we got to assemble the picture-perfect dish that tasted as good as it looked." - Dana Bolstad, Bold Food customer
