Fuel for the Soul aims to shatter the myth that only professional chefs, with years of training & experience in the kitchen, are able to master the creation of wonderful foods. Our mission at Fuel for the Soul is to not only make our artisan gourmet foods available for you in the retail marketplace, but teach you how to prepare your own high quality, fresh, wholesome meals on a daily basis.

Come join us on a magical journey into the culinary world of Chef Tiziana. Each month we offer a fantastic new itinerary for globe trotting via our series of intimate, instructional Thai
& Italian cooking classes. We’ll unearth exotic flavors from various parts of the world and breakdown recipes into simple, easy to replicate menus. Our scheduled classes are typically offered on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings, in addition to a variety of private classes hosted each month. All of our classes or dinner events are held in our recently built company HQ located in Boise's North End. Each class offers you the opportunity to prepare new recipes and learn a plethora of cooking techiques, as well as share a full 3-5 course meal with friends new & old. Our Italian & Thai cooking classes, as well as any special classes for Middle Eastern, Persian, Mediterranean Melange or "Asian Fusion", cost $65.00 per person.

Thanksgiving is now a recent memory in the rear view mirror, November is just about over and the temps outside indicate winter will soon be on our doorstep. It was a glorious fall this year and sure hate to see it go in lieu of winter. But time marches onward and we find ourselves now smackdab in the Holiday Season of 2016. Our Sphere of Mania is without
a doubt upon us. Not only is this the time of year when there is an onslaught of private event requests on top of our scheduled class offerings, but our time commitment in the commercial kitchen exponentially increases in order to keep up with retail products selling through the roof during this time of the year.

Don't get me wrong, we're not registering any complaints here. The alternative of sitting idle & twiddling our thumbs is not something that would work well for us. And quite truthfully, our higher stress levels and having to burn the candle at both ends was in fact exacerbated by our own brilliant decision to book a 17 day family vacation right in the midst of the Holiday Season. Duh! Oh well, you live & learn. But then with both boys grown up & the nest soon to be empty, there really wasn't any other decision but to take this vacation as a whole family while we're still able to do it. So off we go on an adventure to Vietnam. A little different way to spend the Channukah/Christmas Holidays & New Year......nothing like shaking it up a bit!

During the month of December 2016, despite our extended absence, we were still able to offer 5 scheduled Italian classes and a whopping 7 private events during a 17 day span. Whew! And while everything has been totally SOLD OUT for an extended period of time, in case you've never been able to join us for a class before, I've included a link to the cooking class line-up for DECEMBER 2016. This way you can see what had been on tap for the month and the type of class menus offered during this time of year, as we transition our seasonal cooking from fall to winter.

As we head into the New Year, the first couple of months will once again feature a very limited slate of cooking class offerings. This is partly due to our family holiday vacation encroaching on the beginning of January and then Tiziana leaving at the end of the 3rd week of the month. It's that time of year when she once again heads home to Cortina d'Ampezzo to lead our two one-week Italian Dolomiti ski trips. On top of Tiziana's 3+ week absence, we also have 8 private event bookings in the first 3 weeks of January 2017. The result of all of this "other" activity was a very paltry offering of only 2 scheduled classes for the entire month. Thus we decided to combine the schedule for January & February 2017 and cobble together a total of 8 classes.

During the months of January & February 2017, there will be 80 seats up for grabs between the 8 classes. Two of the evenings will feature Thai cuisine, while the remaining 6 classes will showcase a variety of Italian fare. Not a plethora of opportunities, but hopefully enough to satiate the appetites of those remaining in Boise during the winter weekends. Just click on the JANUARY & FEBRUARY 2017 link to see what classes might tickle your fancy.

Booking your class is a snap. When you find an offering of interest to you, just give Joel a shout. To make a reservation for one of our intimate cooking classes, you can send your
e-mail request to joel@fuelforthesoulboise.com OR give Joel a shout by phone (Cell: 208-781-0852 or Office: 208-342-7118). Please be sure to list the class date & # of seats desired in your e-mail. And always best if you have a 2nd choice for dates noted as well, in the event the class you want in your #1 slot is sold out.

PLEASE NOTE: All of our cooking classes, whether Italian, Thai, Middle Eastern, Persian, Asian Fusion or Mediterranean, remain priced at the reasonable cost of $65.00 per person. We have held our 2017 pricing at the same cost as charged during the last 2 years. Pricing last went up in 2015 by $5.00 per person to help offset increased costs, which resulted from our desire to purchase only the freshest seasonal ingredients from local producers & family owned vendors based in our community. We truly believe in supporting the small businesses of the Treasure Valley & this sometimes means paying
a bit more for high quality local goods produced in a more sustainable & responsible way. The fee for private cooking classes also remains at $650.00. This is a flat fee that covers up to 10 people for a private cooking class made up of your own family and/or friends.

And remember, the best way to get a leg up on booking a class for 2017 is to make sure you are on our mailing list. You'll receive a preview of the upcoming class schedule & thus the best opportunity for booking a seat before the classes are released to the general public.
