Take your palate on a world tour this summer and join Chef Maude Eaton at Williams Sonoma in Palm Beach Gardens for a summer cooking class. These classes kick off on July 5 and take place throughout the summer. Attend a single summer cooking class or sign-up for the series — you won’t be disappointed.

For those who know Maude, know that she will immediately welcome you in.  Her passion for food and teaching will be seen throughout the class and her high-spirited energy is contagious. Maude makes cooking simple and fun — and you’ll be entertained throughout. Perhaps, that’s why I’ve been following her around for the past 10 years – and trust me, I’m not the only one. If you’re interested in taking these classes, I’d recommend signing up early, as they will fill up quickly.

To make a reservation, please call Williams Sonoma at The Gardens Mall at 561.799.2425. Space is limited.
