Unfortunately, we are closed.

It's been a blast teaching classes, but because of other pursuits, we can't give the appropriate time and effort to classes that customers would deserve. We have no plans to reopen, but we never say never.

I teach simple cooking in your kitchen.

People around the world prepare and eat simple, nutritious meals every day while staying healthy. I teach that cooking in your kitchen in small, hands on classes. I travel out of Davis Square, in Somerville, MA

    I'm Sam. I love to cook. I love teaching.

    I love fine dining, but my real passion is for the food of the common man. My interest is in dietary staples; food that regular people cook and eat every day. I frequently find that these foods, especially internationally, are traditional, soulful, nourishing and easy to make.

    I've traveled to Italy, Spain, Israel, England, Namibia, South Africa, Mexico, and Brazil and I want to share what I've learned with you.

    Sam Feller Cooking

    "Sam has an amazing recipe up his sleeve for lemon-basili-mascarpone-pasta, which I've found can be combined with chicken for absolutely delicious results. It requires very simple and fresh ingredients which Sam showed me how to cook with an easy stove-top method I had never tried before. This is now one of my go-to favorite dishes, and it takes less than 15 minutes to make..."
