Wooden Spoons is a studio kitchen in Central Iowa and is the home to hands on Culinary Workshops and Cooking Classes for all food lovers in Ankeny, Des Moines, and beyond, catering to the needs of beginners, foodies, and culinary experts alike. I am Deb Cazavilan, the chef and instructor at Wooden Spoons, and would love to welcome you into my kitchen. You'll find a warm friendly atmosphere with lots of interaction and great conversations with friends, new and old. . . centered around our common love for FOOD!

My kitchen pantry has been getting a RADICAL "makeover" to reflect a higher standard. Since 2013 I made a commitment to buy, use and teach with ORGANIC, Local, and Non-GMO products, wherever possible and help my students source the best local ingredients as well.

In addition to the classes I offer on my calendar pages, you'll find that I also make room for
private parties and team building events centered around preparing and enjoying great food together.

Where it began, and where we are going. . .

I began offering cooking lessons in the kitchen of my former restaurant, The Little Blue House, in Ankeny in 2004.

In 2009, I opened Wooden Spoons Workshops and Cooking Classes in our current location...a building my husband and I remodeled as a kitchen classroom designed for groups of 8-12 students.  

But the best and biggest NEWS FOR 2014 is. . . .
Wooden Spoons is busting out of it's seams and breaking ground for our new location, expected to be completed late fall 2014. 
Stay tuned for regular progress reports!

In the meantime, join me in my kitchen at 303 SW School for another fabulous year of cooking, baking and celebrating at
Wooden Spoons Workshops!
