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 Friday, Saturday and/or Sunday evenings, as we also conduct a variety of private classes 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. Both our Italian & Thai cooking classes cost $65.00 per person.

April 2015 Update:
Spring has sprung and a wondrous variety of some great seasonal eats are showing their faces in abundance. Asparagus, leeks, fennel, beets, artichokes & arugula are pretty much everywhere to be found, while we're just starting to see the beginning of rhubarb & the real vine ripened strawberries. Ah, the life of a professional eater!

Gardens are being prepped and starters lovingly tended & protected indoors for the nightly temperature drops. Starting to think again about cranking up the drip system and having all garden systems operating at full speed ahead. Just praying that we don't get a frost that "decapitates" all of the fruit trees that are in full bud, let alone freeze up & blow out drip lines!

It's also that time of year when we'll reveal the dates for the 2016 Cortina d'Ampezzo ski trips. Once again, we'll be looking to do 2 separate week long trips and already have sold
1 slot in the 1st week & 2 slots in the 2nd week. As these intimate ski trips are limited to just 8 people, keep your eyes peeled on your inbox for 2016 dates & pricing being released at the end of March or beginning of April. If you ask some of the past attendees from the trips over the last four years, it's an event of a lifetime and not to be missed.

April 2015 broke a record of a different sort. For the 1st time in over a year, we didn't sell out the complete roster of classes within the usual 30 minutes or so. However, within about a week, we were back to our usual SOLD OUT basis. This is also the second month of our new cooking class schedule format. In trying to balance the needs of our business versus the requirement for a happy & healthy family life, we ceased holding any Sunday evening classes at the beginning of March 2015. In place of the Sunday classes are the Happy Hump Day classes on Wednesday evenings. These weekday classes start at 6pm and still allow for an early finish on a "school night". So far the mid-week classes have been a very big hit and constantly in demand.

Whether your interest is to actually learn new dishes & techniques or just come to class to fill up on some of Tiziana's gastronomic wonders, our current client base has learned it typically takes a blazingly fast finger on the "send" button to actually land a seat in class. For those with a quick draw, they landed a seat before most of the April 2015 classes sold out. And as of this writing, yes, we are completely SOLD OUT with nary an open seat for any of our scheduled classes in April 2015. Just click the link to see the slate of class offerings that were scooped up for this 4th month of 2015.

If you were denied a class seat for April 2015, you have a unique opportunity or at least one that we have not seen for over a year. We released our May 2015 cooking class schedule back on 3/16/15 and only sold out about 2/3 of the available seats. So while it's a bit of an anomaly, it has created the possibility to actually nab a seat without the usual feeding frenzy. So if you didn't try to grab a seat in May 2015 due to being fed-up with never scoring a seat or you are new to Fuel for the Soul, we still have plenty of seats in a wide variety of classes during the month of May 2015. Here's a peek at what's on tap for May 2015. Check out our Facebook page for an updated listing of available seating during not only May 2015, but for any given period of time.

As my crystal ball doesn't tell me what future cooking class schedule releases will bring, I do know that typically by the time you come to our website to peruse the class schedules, there are usually no seats available for any of our cooking classes. As our client list has grown to over 2,400 people, the best way to avoid being shut-out is to get on our mailing list. These are the folks that get first crack at bookings for any newly published classes.

A perusal of the schedules for April 2015 & May 2015 will give you a good idea of the types of classes one can expect during these transitional spring calendar months. If one of the open May 2015 seats doesn't work for you, the next opportunity to nab a seat in one of our cooking classes will be on Monday April 20, 2015 at 4:00PM. This is the official release date & time for the combined JUNE/JULY 2015 cooking class schedule. Stay tuned!

PLEASE NOTE: As a reminder, the cost for our Italian or Thai cooking classes are $65.00 per person. We raised our 2015 pricing 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 increased and is now $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.

So remember, the best way to get a leg up on booking a class for 2015 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.
