Did you know that Apple Pie, Clam Chowder, Texas BBQ and Boston Cream Pie are some of America’s favorite dishes?

American cuisine is based around regional dishes which are inspired by local ingredients, culture and ethnicity. For example, in New England, many popular dishes are based on fishing and seasonal fruits and vegetables such as pumpkins, apples and berries. Travel across America with Miss Liz, owner of Food Jules, to learn how to create these famous regional dishes.

Students work in teams to prep, cook and bake while exploring the food and culture of a different USA region each week. We will bake apple pie, cheesecake, boston cream pie cupcakes and we’ll cook clam chowder, chicken pot pie, chili and much more!

ALL OF OUR CLASSES ARE NUT FREE and ALLERGY FRIENDLY.

Registration and payment is due by Feb 14th. Use this link to sign up today! Email liz@foodjules.com with questions!

Fall Cooking Camp starts in October!

Our next cooking camp starts on October 4th! Registration ends Sept 14th.

Autumn is quickly approaching so join Miss Liz in the kitchen, where we’ll prepare some warm, healthy and comforting meals. We’ll make hearty soups, chili, lasagna, muffins and even pies. Each week, this hands-on class will teach students the skills necessary to make these wholesome, savory meals using seasonal ingredients.

Food Jules featured in GlutenFreeConnecticut!

We have some very exciting news to share… Food Jules was recently featured in Gluten Free Connecticut.

What a great website! Filled with information on Gluten Free friendly Restaurants, Bakeries, Facilities, articles on workshops and classes for those with Celiac or Gluten Sensitivities. It’s a dynamite resource for finding all the information you need when on a Gluten Free diet. It’s also a great place to learn about other food allergies.

We are thrilled to be included on this amazing website. Check it out here. Here is a quick snapshot of what you’ll find…

“If you have a child with celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or any food allergy, you know how hard birthday parties can be. But Liz Cerrato, owner of Food Jules in Monroe, CT,  is making it easier. She provides healthy, allergy-friendly cooking classes for kids of all ages, via birthday parties, private lessons, girl and boy scout workshops, after school enrichment classes, and even summer camp! 

Liz aims to teach children about nutrition and healthy eating habits while fostering a love and passion for wholesome food and cooking.  Her passion for both cooking and teaching ensures that no child is excluded from the food preparation or the party!  Menu choices range from gluten free, nut free and dairy free, to any dietary restriction you want or need.food jules liz

Liz started Food Jules shortly after her son Julian passed away as an infant. Helping to enrich the lives of other children through healthy foods is her way of honoring his memory.  If you have a celiac or a child with a food allergy, and you’re lucky enough to live in or near Monroe, definitely give Liz a call. Her dedication to helping our kids learn and enjoy wholesome foods is really special, and we are thrilled to have her in the Gluten-Free Connecticut family!
