As a new year begins, Marcel’s Culinary Experience (http://www.marcelsculinaryexperience.com), a gourmet retail store and recreational cooking school in Glen Ellyn, Ill. (Chicago suburb), has welcomed local chefs Heidi Kise and Cherise Slattery to its teaching staff.
“We’re thrilled to have Heidi and Cherise join our culinary team, as demand for our classes and private events continues to grow. Each chef brings unique skills and experience that we look forward to sharing as we develop new class topics and event themes in the months ahead,” said Jill Foucré, owner of Marcel’s Culinary Experience.
Kise, a Wheaton resident, is a graduate of San Francisco’s Tante Marie’s Cooking School and Illinois State University. A former restaurant chef and food stylist, she is also a caterer and member of the adjunct faculty at Kendall College, Chicago. Her upcoming classes at Marcel’s include sessions on sauce- and pasta-making as well as the basics of Thai and French bistro cuisine.
St. Charles resident Slattery is a certified pastry chef with degrees from Elgin Community College and Northern Illinois University. She sells her line of all-natural pastries at local farmers markets in the western suburbs. Her first quarter classes at Marcel’s will include several offerings for kids of different ages and a sweet dough workshop for adults.
Marcel’s has more than 60 classes scheduled during the first quarter of 2015, with both hands-on and demonstration classes during the day and evenings seven days a week for cooks of all ages and skill levels. Virtually all include a meal, plus beer and wine for adults attending hands on classes.
Marcel’s also creates food-oriented parties, private group classes and other special events for groups of 10 to 60 people. Options range from cocktail parties to demonstration and participatory cooking classes for all ages and skill levels.
