Private Cooking Lessons
I offer two kinds of gourmet cooking classes.
The first class option involves teaching you how to cook the meal we prepare in a "one on one" setting.
The second is a more formal cooking class available for parties of up to six individuals.
Formal cooking classes are offered for parties of two to six individuals. A four course menu of your choice will be arranged prior to the class. The menu's are based on our seasonal menu's with interest into a culinary style you want to explore. Then the classes are scheduled on a day and time of your choosing that coordinates with our current schedule openings.
NOTE: Once the day and time is set it cannot be altered.
Training & Qualifications
I am Justin Von Braun, Chef Owner of Von Braun Private Chefs. I have been in the restaurant industry since I was really young and have been a private chef now since 2008. From Fine Dining to Molecular Gastronomy labs and Gastro Pubs, I have trained with some amazing chefs and food scientists. My true passion lies in food science and understanding not only how certain chemical compunds change the way we taste and experience food but how they contribute to color, fragrance and how they affect each individuals body and chemical makeup.
Why I do this
I do this because I love food but more over I love people. The perfect pairing for an amazing dish is an eaqually amazing person to eat that dish. Yes I strive to make my food a work of culinary and scientific art, but I also strive to design dishes and menu's that people want to keep coming back for.
