Bring the flavors of the tropics into the kitchen! We’re making desserts with pineapple, coconut, mango, and banana to share (or not!). Kristyn will be cooking alongside you, sharing instructions, tips and tricks throughout class. The class is your time to ask questions, ask for feedback, learn a little something and most importantly, have fun!

To Prepare for Class: Patrons will simply purchase ingredients & gather their kitchen equipment from the provided recipes. For a more relaxed class, we recommend prepping your ingredients ahead of time (chopping, measuring). This is not required, however, as you will be guided through every step of preparation. You may also join us to simply watch along!
