Professional Chef MaryRuth Rera teaches basic culinary techniques, as well as more advanced classes and specialty regional cuisines for the cooking connoisseur.
Chef Rera brings over 20 years of experience and expertise to her cooking classes. In 1997, she trained at the Scuola di Arte Culinaria Cordon Bleu in one of the world’s best known food destinations, beautiful Florence, Italy. There, Chef Rera learned the importance of preparing and eating freshly made food with only the highest quality ingredients. She returned to the U.S. with a lifelong passion of cooking delicious meals and sharing them with others. In 2001, she brought her passion and joy of cooking to fashion designer Ralph Lauren and his family, where she was his private chef for eight years.
The North Drive Cooking School focuses on the art of cooking at home, whether it’s for two or twenty. The hands-on courses will provide the necessary skills to cook more often and give you the techniques to prepare new and delicious dishes with confidence. In this relaxed atmosphere, each two-hour class will allow you to cook in a small group, while enjoying the camaraderie of others. Afterwards, we will sit at the table and dine together, family-style. You will be provided recipes for each of the dishes you learn. And should there be any leftovers, they are yours to take home!
