Learn to FLIRT with food! After numerous friends asked me to teach them how to cook without using recipes, I decided to offer private cooking lessons in the Los Angeles area for those who want to come home and whip up a fabulous meal that’s not limited by cookbooks! Each class is customized to accomplish whatever you want to learn. Below are a few examples of class offerings. For more details and pricing, click here. You can also email me at Lindsay @

  • Building a Basic Pantry—the most important step towards cooking without recipes. In this class, you send me a list of what’s in your current pantry, what type of foods you want to cook, then we meet at the grocery store and create your perfect pantry!
  • Cooking 101: Perfect intro class for the truly newbie home-cook.
  • Creative Cooking I: This class is for people who are pretty comfortable cooking with recipes and want to learn how to use recipes as a guide and add their own personal “Flirt Factor.”

    Food Flirt develops recipes DIFFERENTLY.

      My mission is to inspire people to “flirt” with new products and new flavor combinations. That’s why each recipe I develop has at least one unexpected element meant to pique consumers’ curiosity and entice them to try something new. Can you say Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies? Or Tequila Pineapple Pork Kabobs? Food Flirt creates and photographs original recipes for food brands, commercial bakeries and restaurants, cookbooks, cooking shows, special events, etc.

    CULINARY VIDEOS: Promotional, product reviews, & cooking segments

      Video content is more popular than ever. Food brands hire me to host and produce promotional and cooking videos or to be an on-camera brand ambassador. Most recently, I appeared on a series of cooking segments on KTLA for Farmer John, cooking up the holiday dishes and interviewed celebrity chefs Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger on behalf of Cacique Cheese at Taste of the Nation, Hollywood.

        Hi Barbara,

        Thanks for the question … the correct amount is 1 3/4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips. I will make sure they update that on their website.

        Thanks for letting me know and enjoy the cookies! They are addicting 🙂
