Rec & Ed partners with Ann Arbor’s chef to offer new cooking classes

ANN ARBOR, me. – Ann Arbor Community Education and Recreation (Rec & Ed) partnered with chef Natalie Marble to offer virtual cooking classes this spring.

After moving to Tree Town, Marble started a recreational cooking school, Ann Arbor Cooks, after owning her own catering business in Washington, DC. She brings 20 years of culinary experience to her virtual classes at Rec & Ed.

“I like teaching cooking classes because cooking together creates a community for me – a community with which I can share my knowledge and experience in order to create self-confident and qualified home cooks and to make cooking more accessible and fun, regardless of age or ability . This community is even more important in times of COVID when we cannot gather in person, ”Marble said in a press release.

Community members cook and bake alongside marble during adult class, highlighting dishes from around the world, including Japanese gyoza, Thai pad Lake Mao, French macarons, and Italian gnocchi.


Families with children can sign up for a baking class and learn how to make a fruit tart from scratch.

Community members who sign up for three classes in one registration will receive a $ 10 discount off their grand total, Rec & Ed said.

Registration is now open and can be done through the Rec & Ed website.
