Cooking Classes

I’m Karen Gros, a culinary instructor, avid foodie, health advocate and travel enthusiast.  I teach cooking classes in our Provençal-style home in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and lead small group tours to various regions in France, Greece and Italy.

I get inspired when I travel and bring this inspiration back to the kitchen.  Seeing the abundant produce at our local farmers’ market also feeds my inspiration.  The father of my children is an organic vegetable farmer, and our commitment to locally produced ingredients runs decades deep.

My passion is all about delicious food and feeling great.  As Virginia Woolf quoted, “One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”  So let’s have fun creating delicious, savory meals at home “from scratch”.  As a wellness advocate, I also offer healthful ways to prepare delicious veggie-centric meals that enhance vitality, energy and happiness.

Cooking Class Descriptions

Cooking classes are held on a regular basis throughout the year in both Eureka Springs and Kansas City.  I offer both a demonstration class (for those who like to sit & watch) and hands-on classes (for those who like to participate).

I’ve been teaching cooking classes since 2004, and love sharing and inspiring others.  Often the learning goes both ways, as participants sometimes share their favorite ways to prepare a dish.

The seasonally inspired menu changes every month.  Locally grown and raised ingredients are my priority, and include traditional French classics, as well as menus artfully adapted to maximize health benefits (without sacrificing flavor).  Menus are gluten-free unless otherwise indicated, and can be adapted to vegetarian and plant-based diets.  Learn to prepare homemade recipes using top quality, healthful ingredients.
