If the food that comes out of Joyful Kitchen, a boutique cooking school in Wellesley, tastes as good as the kitchen looks, then it must be a magical place. Chef and owner Amy Lipton runs classes out of her gorgeous and welcoming turquoise and orange home kitchen designed by Swellesley advertiser Abeles & Associates architects with interior design by local Wellesley business owner Katie Rosenfeld. The kitchen will also welcome hordes of visitors during its stint as part of the Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club Kitchen and Home Tour on May 7.
Classes are kept small (about 8-10 students) and are all about hands-on-learning and feasting. Her formal training is grounded in classic French cuisine, and she also lived and trained in Japan for four years.
Amy recently returned from a week-long culinary excursion in Havana and has brought back plenty of ideas and recipes to try out in her classes. And for those who miss their weekly fix of Downton Abbey, not to worry loves, she offers a class that will have you cooking like Mrs Patmore in a trice.
