What’s Been Happening with A Fine Fit?

I am posting this update as you may have noticed I’ve dropped off the radar for a little bit over the past few months!  With COVID and the associated restrictions, business as usual has been a thing of the past.  However, with the drop in business, I have spent more time with the kids (learned just how hard it is to homeschool my children), had a chance to experiment with specialty cooking (see my 50 days of vegan on insta!), have been upgrading my skills (more in this to come) and, most significantly, we as a family have chosen to finally make a move that we have dreamed of for many years – to a beautiful old home in the heart of the forest surrounding the University and golf course by Central Ave! 

The new property is a beautiful acreage with a giant garden and greenhouse that I am itching to incorporate in the future for “garden to table” style classes.  But the house needed/needs a lot of work and so for the past 3 months my husband and I fell into a steep learning curve as we figured out how to contract our own renovations during a pandemic.  It has been stressful, and fun, and exhausting and wonderful all at the same time. 

The good news is we are now moved in as of mid-October, and the not so great news is that we are still waiting on our kitchen cabinets (which I intend to stain myself!) before we’ll be finished. Here’s what our setup currently looks like:

Our kitchen is a mixture of boxes and plywood currently. Not ideal for hosting cooking classes 😉

A Fine Fit does hope to be up and running by December for Christmas events – if all goes well! In the meantime, for all of you who have enjoyed my custom classes in the past, or are itching to use your gift certificates, I am currently offering “Chef in your Home” style dinners for small groups of 6-10 (we would need to ensure adherance to COVID-19 safety guidelines of course). Connect with me if this is something you’d like to explore more!

I also have gift certificates available for the perfect Christmas gift!  Send me an email or call me at 708-3509 and I would be happy to hook you up!  

Oh and I am excited to announce a foray into virtual cooking classes coming soon! Once the kitchen is all set I will be offering cooking classes that will allow you to sign in from home and join me in a journey of delicious food creation online! More details to come on this in the coming weeks and months so stay tuned!

I must say that with the whirlwind of the past few months and 2020 being the tumultuous and unpredictable year that it’s been, I am so looking forward to getting back to some sense of normalcy and being back in the kitchen and doing classes is a great place to start! I miss these classes and I miss all you wonderful people who have attended over the years! It’s truly one of the main joys of the work I do.

So here’s to a great 2021 as we forge ahead and celebrate the good that is in our lives.  …And of course celebrate great food along the way as well!
