“I’m here to help!” is chef and food educator Marissa Joinson’s upbeat motto – and she means it. No matter your age, ability, or dietary needs, The Intuitive Kitchen is Joinson’s way of making home cooking less daunting.
“Whether public classes or private events, I love to bring play, laughter, and a light approach to a fundamental human need,” says Joinson, who uses her expertise to build folks’ confidence and comfort in the kitchen, acting as both instructor and cheerleader every step of the way, from roux to scrumptious sauce.
With an emphasis on seasonal produce (think winter squash for January) and a healthy slant, Joinson’s classes are tailored to what her students are looking for, whether that’s kid-friendly snacks and smoothies or the basics of seafood cooking. The traveling chef brings the ingredients to your home for programming like Cooking Parties – her most popular offering – encouraging groups of friends to get crafty in the kitchen. Joinson also accommodates virtual classes and hosts T.I.Kids Parties for young chefs. Through a partnership with the Gloria Gemma Foundation, The Intuitive Kitchen contributed to a wellness program emphasizing clients’ various health concerns.
If your New Year’s resolution involves cooking more – and you’re in a roughly 50-mile radius of Joinson’s Warren base at Hope & Main – it may be time to enlist a pro. “I’m happy to work and play in any kitchen, whether indoor or outdoor, with anyone, novice or experienced!” TheIntuitiveKitchen.com
