Cooking Classes

"Home Cooking.  

That’s where it all begins.  


So whether you have some experience or absolutely none at all… have no fear… 


Mamma Dorina is here to help!"

Cooking Class

Dorina’s Kitchen offers basic cooking classes as well as authentic Italian cooking classes for the home cook. Dorina will teach you easily reproducible recipes and methods including what a handful of this and a pinch of that is!


To be a good cook it takes more than just following a recipe. So we aren’t just here to demonstrate.  Our classes are interactive so you can see how things should look, smell and taste throughout the cooking process.

Whether you are cooking for a large family, friends or for yourself, we will teach you simple recipes and methods to make you feel comfortable in your own kitchen.


Dorina is available to host cooking classes in and around the Lower Delaware/Ocean City Maryland area and in the Washington, DC area.(for other locations just ask!)

All class types are usually 2-4 hours depending on the class menu and number of people!

“It has been (and will continue to be) the best cooking experience I have encountered. Dorina’s recipes, and her ability to share them (with a wonderful ‘gift of gab’) makes one eager to run home and prepare each and every one of them. The ingredients are healthful and create very tasty dishes! The classes are fun, and each member has the opportunity to take part in the cooking process. Had I discovered Dorina years ago, I certainly would have become a better homemaker (although it’s NEVER too late) I must say, I am so proud to share my new recipes with family and friends, and the ‘little tricks’ Dorina has shared with us along the way. Bravo, Dorina!!!”

“I took Dorina's Functional Home Cooking Course through the local adult school last fall. I have continued to take weekly classes since then. Dorina's emphasis is on cooking quick, nutritious meals using wholesome ingredients. Her forte is Italian cooking but she has a broad knowledge of foods and other styles of cooking. Her classes are well organized. Topics touched on during class include the choice of ingredients, possible variations and substitutions, nutrition, tricks of the trade, and tips on where to shop. Dorina is friendly and engaging and her classes are informative and enjoyable. Her class is the perfect starting point for someone with little experience in cooking who wants to learn the basics. Her class would also be valuable for a person with some experience in the kitchen who wants to broaden their perspective.”
