Farm to Fork Cooking Classes with Chef Eva

Chef Eva has no scheduled cooking classes for 2017. At this point, only private classes can be reserved. Private classes and culinary retreats will be the focus in the first quarter of 2017. A private class consists of at least five participants or minimum of $540. Additional participants over five is $90 each. For more information call 903-645-3232.

Once again a new year has arrived and with it the opportunity to expand your culinary boundaries by participating in some of the most unique cooking classes available in north Texas. Many have returned to take several classes a year and they in turn bring their friends and family members making it a special tradition. Chef Eva's reputation has grown by word of mouth from satisfied class participants and with the publication of each new article about our family farm. Southern Living designated it as one of "America's Secret Farm Hideaways".

The Dallas Morning News said "In the course of the classes, amateur cooks take turns exclaiming at the revelations chef Eva casually drops. Not only do you push back from the Greer's table with appetite and taste buds sated, but you also go back home to your own kitchen with refreshed pleasure in the process".

Texas Co-Op Power magazine designated our farm and Chef Eva's cooking classes as a place for a learning vacation. "During the whirlwind three-hour class in the spacious, well-lit kitchen, we watched Eva prepare beef roast, lamb chops, pork loin, butternut squash, potatoes, mint sauce, gravy, roasted fruit and toasted pound cake. She handled this complex dance with practical ease, even managing to involve us in pureeing, seasoning, turning, beating and mixing. Delectable smells permeated the kitchen, and we dug appreciatively into the finished dishes. Chef Eva made it fun and had us convinced that we could cook like this ourselves".

Many have scheduled private classes to bring together family or friends. Some rent all the cabins and make it a weekend event. The menu possibilities for these classes are very flexible.

About Our Cooking Classes

  • Culinary Expectations[+]

    Building off the success of the each year's scheduled and private cooking classes, Chef Eva has great expectations for the 2017 culinary season at the Greer Farm. In the first quarter, she has reserved these months for private classes or culinary retreats. Her classes offer a broad spectrum of culinary experiences that meet almost every food desire. Each menu prepared in consultation with you will be carefully balanced to include parings of dishes that focus on the class theme.
  • Cooking with Chef Eva[+]

    Chef Eva opens her chef's kitchen to share her culinary expertise with those that want to expand their culinary talents. Situated on a real working farm it is not difficult to get caught up in the "farm to table" spirit that prevails on our family farm. Each class highlights the fun and magic of cooking. If you just want to learn the basics or if you want to go fancy and surprise a special person in your life, cooking classes at the Greer Farm are a culinary event you will never forget. Every class is a hands-on experience. There are no overhead mirrors or video screens. Our classes include laughter, questions, conversation, and eating. We want to show you how great food begins and feel the passion and commitment we have to food, including that grown on our family farm or by other artisan producers. In addition to the scheduled classes throughout the year at the farm, we offer private classes to groups and individuals by prior arrangement.
  • Private Classes[+]

    Chef Eva offers private cooking classes in addition to those scheduled. These crossed the spectrum of different groups. Some were families that wanted a fun time to bond, others were friends wanting a time away from their normal life to unwind and their were corporate groups that needed a team building session, but were tired of all the boring, bridge building, corporate bonding retreats that too many companies thrust their management and employees into. Consider something different: a retreat that includes a farm stay, relax in log cabins and take a private cooking class. The Greer farm is the perfect environment to bring a group together, rent log cabins and spend time cooking, eating and renewing friendships. There is nothing that makes people bond quicker than good food. Private classes are $540 minimum for a group up to six and $90 for each additional person over six participants. We have a wide selection of sample menus for you to consider or a special menu can be designed for your group.
  • Who Is Chef Eva?[+]

    Chef Eva was born and raised in Belize, a small country on the Caribbean coast of Central America. She is a graduate of Loyola University and The Houston Art Institute (Culinary Arts). For a number of years, she was a consultant to Pilgrim's Pride Corporation developing recipes, including their newsletter. Her recipes have appeared in advertisements in Good Housekeeping and Southern Living. Chef Eva's private dining and catering services are renowned. For more than a decade she has been teaching cooking classes at the family farm, for a local community college, and other venues. Chef Eva's Latin American upbringing, European parental influences, and two decades of world travel with her husband bring a unique experience to the kitchen that is not easily duplicated. We hope to see you at the table!

Farm to Fork Cooking Classes at the Greer Farm have become a tradition for many. It’s an activity that enables you to get away for a few hours or a weekend if you choose to stay in one of our lakeside log cabins or the loft apartment while learning about different kinds of food and how to prepare it. All classes are hands-on participation, not a lecture presentation. Come prepared to be involved, learn, laugh and enjoy the great food you prepare.
