Welcome to Country Garden Cuisine Cooking School. The Country Garden Cuisine cooking school is located in an 1847 historic home, just outside of St. Charles, Illinois.

Country Garden Cuisine is the culmination of a dream. The school opened here on the farm in 1999, previously I taught from a retail-based cooking school for ten years and before that as a home economist. Here on our 1800’s farmstead I have combined together a passion for gardening and a love for food. Our setting is one that is quickly disappearing from the Chicagoland area, and by holding classes in an 1847 home I can preserve the feel of where real food comes from, the land. I can invite our students and guest to step back in time to a simpler era, if just for a few hours, to take time for themselves in our hectic world and to come together to learn.
