Cooking Classes

Valentine Cooking on the Farm

What a fantastic Valentine weekend cooking in the farmhouse at Appleton Farms, Ipswich.  Fantastic food, friends, and enthusiasm all around!

2014 Winter ‘Pot Pie’ Cooking


This is the time of year we all wait for in New England…..sweet, ripe, juicy tomatoes pouring in from local farms!  What a treat to use these in our “Tomato” themed cooking class…..fantastic!



Cooking Classes on the farm at APPLETON COOKS!

Our July Crop-To-Kitchen harvest & cooking demo at Smolak Farms. Red currants, raspberries, beets, and cucumbers all stars of the show!

Fun at the Compass Rose Inn


Another successful ‘APPLES’ cooking class but this time at Veasey Park in Groveland.  This place is one of my favorites….private, tucked in the woods, and good vibes all around.  Thanks to the fun, eager, and inspired group who participated…..I thoroughly enjoyed teaching and cooking with you all!   Our cozy candlelit dinner was a perfect ending to a special evening!

The Barn

Last night was the ‘kick-off’ class at the beautiful Gould Barn in Topsfield.  Thanks to all those who joined me in the kitchen….and kudos for preparing a wonderful ‘APPLES, APPLES’ menu……my pleasure to have you all for the evening.  New England in fall is pretty special anyway, but there’s something about celebrating the local apple harvest in a 300-year old restored barn, dining with new friends and eating homemade cider doughnuts as an appetizer and dessert…..neat!

Happy Cooking, Carolyn
