Consider registering for this fun holiday cookie baking and decorating class for beginners. Gather your family or treat yourself to some quality personal fun time. You will be baking cookies for decorating ahead of time so they are ready to decorate at the start of class.

Recipes will include a soft and chewy sugar cookie and a more dense crisp sugar cookie. You can guess one of the instructor’s favorite holiday cookie cutter shapes is a gingerbread person. This is one shape that proves to be a lot of fun to decorate year after year and time will definitely be spent on this and other holiday shapes. Choose to bake one or both using cookie cutters of your choice. No fancy decorating tips or bags will be needed. You will use simple plastic sandwich bags to decorate.

Tess Georgakopoulos


Tess Georgakopoulos, also known as “Chef Tess - Culinary Artist”, has been cooking and baking for well over 45 years since she was roughly 6 years old. Born into a Greek family, the art of cooking traditional meals using ones senses rather than recipes and measurements was passed on from one generation to the next. Her father was also a trained chef who brought the magic of food to life in another form on the weekends as they cooked elaborate family meals together. Food prepared from the heart, with ones own hands and creativity was, and continues to be an expression of love in her home. As an accomplished cook and baker, Tess enjoys creating original recipes for her family and friends. Sweet, savory, or doughy, she enjoys experimenting and creating in the kitchen daily. 

Tess is proficient and experienced in creating classes and curriculum for conventional cooking, baking, pressure-cooking, air frying, pizza making, Mediterranean Cooking, and meal preparation as well. More recently, she is expanding her creativity and experience in the creation of Cooking Master Classes! A culinary artist indeed! 

She has been teaching both in-person and on-line cooking classes through community education for a number of years, and is currently working with almost 60 public school districts in and around the Twin Cities, in many corners of Minnesota, in addition to school districts in Wisconsin, Missouri, New York, and Oklahoma! Through her teaching, Tess has helped people of all skill levels increase their confidence and expand their skills in the kitchen reaching heights of their own personal creativity that they never new existed!

Always working towards expanding her culinary repertoire, Tess enjoys spending much of her free time in her test kitchen creating new recipes and reinventing traditional ones as she combines traditional and new cooking methods, equipment, appliances, and technology in the creation of her recipes that help make “dishing” delicious and simple. Tess has recently started writing her first cookbook, and her food blog is also in the works! Some of her creations can be seen on her Facebook page, “Dish it up Good”, or on her Instagram Feed.
