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, Mediterranean Melange or "Asian Fusion", cost $65.00 per person.

Watching autumn unfold this year has been a real treat. Absolutely gorgeous weather, some badly needed precipitation and clean, crisp, cool air. Now coming up on the last week of October, as we get ready to close out the month and head into November 2016. With the fall season now squarely on our doorstep, the featured menus have decidely turned more in favor of comfort foods, as we transition & get ready for cooler/colder weather fare. So far the remaining garden goodies have not been killed off by a frost. Fingers crossed.

In addition to the 2 Private Cooking Classes slated for November 2016, we are pleased to present a slate of 10 fantastic scheduled classes, including 2 Thai & a treasure trove of 8 Italian offerings. That's the good news. The bad news for those of you who may be a bit behind the curve & yet to book a seat in class during the month is that we've almost sold out seating for November 2016. As of 10/22/16, we still have 1 seat for our Thai class on Sat. 11/05, 1 seat for the Happy Hump Day Italian class on Wed. 11/09 and lastly a block of 3 seats for our final class of the month (Italian) on Wed. 11/30. I've included a link to the class line-up for NOVEMBER 2016, so you can see what we had on tap for the month, as well as the menus offered in the classes with seating availability.

If you weren't able to get your class of choice for November or simply were too busy to commit to an evening next month, now would be the time to check-out the next round of our cooking classes. We have a fabulous, albeit VERY limited, line-up of classes to wrap up the year. Between our family vacation to Vietnam and a slew of Private Cooking Classes & Holiday Events, the pickings will be few & far between.

During December 2016, we'll only be serving up a total of 5 scheduled classes, all of which will be Italian. With only 50 seats at the kitchen bar during the month of December, not a whole lot of opportunities to find a class that is perfectly suited to your palate or pursuit of new kitchen ideas. So if ever there was a time to pull the lever on a class, now would be the time to do so. Take a look at the schedule for our DECEMBER 2016 classes and see which one of the 5 menus might fit your needs and/or desires.

Once you find a class of interest to you, just give Joel a shout. To make a reservation for one of our intimate cooking classes, you can contact Joel via cell at 208-781-0852 or send an e-mail request to joel@fuelforthesoulboise.com. Just be sure to list the class date & # of seats desired. 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.

And as a heads-up, the "inventory" of cooking classes for both January & February 2017 will be similarly small. Classes won't resume in the New Year until Wednesday January 11th and less than 2 weeks later Tiziana will be winging her way home to Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy. She'll take off her toque and don helmet & goggles as the tour leader of our weeklong ski trips. On top of her tour duties, she'll nab a few days of visiting with family & friends. Thus, our February 2017 classes won't begin until Friday February 17th. I think you get the idea.....between the start of December 2016 and the end of February 2017, we won't have more than 5-6 cooking classes per month.

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 2016 pricing at the same cost as charged during all of last year. Pricing did go 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 2016 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.
