About Chef Janice Thomas

Chef Janice Thomas has over 20 years experience in the food industry. In addition to owning her own catering company for 14 years, Janice has been teaching cooking classes for many years in Arizona, Oregon and Wisconsin. Studies at the renowned Cordon Bleu in Paris and with well-respected chefs in France, Italy and China have enhanced Janice's repertoire. Extensive travel in Mexico afforded the opportunity to cook with a variety of local chefs, where she developed a love for the distinctive southwest flavors. Thus was born Janice's specialty in food fusions.

Janice states, "Combining the flavors of many cultures results in an explosion of taste delights."

We are committed to excellence in service and instruction. Learn by experience in classes structured as hands-on workshops. Have fun being a part of a great culinary adventure!

What Savory Spoon Has to Offer

The Savory Spoon cooking classes have been designed with the home cook/entertainer in mind. If you are interested in learning new techniques and recipes that can be recreated in your own kitchen, please come join us.

The majority of our classes are "hands on" classes. Each class is 2 1/2 – 3 hours with 12-16 students per class. Chef Thomas and her staff create menus to address the interests of all levels of cooks. After the meal has been prepared by the students, with the help of our chefs, you will sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Each table will be set with French linens, candles, and fresh flowers. A full wine selection from our cellars will be available for purchase by the glass or bottle.

The majority of our classes are taught by Chef Janice Thomas. Other classes are taught by our in house chefs, as well as visiting chefs from around the country.

  • "Hands On" and Demonstration Classes
  • Regional to International
  • Morning & Evening classes
  • Gourmet Lunch and Learn (demonstration)

The Savory Spoon also offers a wide array of private events including:

  • Private events which can be tailored to meet you entertaining needs
  • Corporate Team Building Events
  • Family Reunions
  • Bridal Showers/Birthday Parties

Please contact us to help you plan your special event.
