Culinary Maestro

Jeremy Reinicke

Chef Jeremy takes a “back to basics” approach to cooking whole fresh foods. He passionately believes whatever you eat should taste delicious, and that preparing food should be fun and relaxing. He wants to take your culinary skills to the next level and improve your health while doing it. As a classically trained chef, Jeremy knows the art of cooking but likes to keep things simple and loves to teach and celebrate his students’ successes. Chef Jeremy has a broad food background, from Chef Instructor at Le Cordon Bleu to Restaurant Manager to Culinary Education Manager for the largest healthcare provider in Minnesota. In his early days, he worked at Tim McKee’s Solera in Minneapolis and Robert Mondavi and Julia Child’s “COPIA” in Napa Valley. Chef Jeremy’s students love his sense of humor and engaging teaching style, and he definitely has a fan club. If you take a cooking class, you will be sure to find out what his kitchen pet peeves are. When not in the kitchen, Jeremy loves being by the water. His favorite spot is at his cabin in Wisconsin or taking his boat out on the local lakes. And, of course, he loves checking out the cuisine at any restaurant.


  • What age do you recommend participants be?

    This course is designed to engage eaters 6 years and up. However, we would never stifle interested “little chefs” that are younger than that. They will just need more assistance from the “big chefs” in their lives. Chef Jeremy focuses on teaching safety in the kitchen and simplifying cooking techniques to make this course valuable to all. Even the most experienced home cook may pick up a thing or two.

  • Do I need any special equipment to complete this course?

    No. All the sessions are designed to be doable in a kitchen equipped with the basics. Additionally, chef shares loads of tips and tricks to address any issue participants may run into

    Yes! All our recipes have options to be modified to fit a Dairy-free, Gluten-free, and/or Low-FODMAP eating style. Plus, you’ll find many excellent vegetarian, pescatarian, and vegan options. This course is focused on honing your cooking skills. So, if you don’t like, or can’t eat an ingredient, you can swap it out for something that works for you. You’re in control.
