Marguerite Henderson

(Update January 2017)

For the past 5 years, it has been a pleasure to work with Marguerite Henderson at her cooking school in her beautiful home. Together we have presented food and wine classes, dinners and holiday parties.

We celebrate the recent retirement of Marguerite and wish her the best in her travel to Italy and the Pacific Northwest.

Marguerite Marceau Henderson embarked on her culinary career in 1980 by teaching cooking classes at a local cook store, after living in Europe for over 3 years, incorporating her love of food and wine and her degree in Elementary Education. She has gradually built a reputation in Salt Lake City for having over 28 years experience as a cooking educator, caterer, restaurateur, food writer, cookbook author, public speaker, television personality, and food consultant.

Over the past 28 years she has had a catering business feeding such personalities as President George Bush (the First), Senator Robert Dole, Martha Stewart, Robert Redford, and hundreds of clients throughout the state of Utah.

Having opened two successful restaurants, she sold the award winning and charming Cucina, a gourmet deli in the Avenues neighborhood of Salt Lake City in 2001, and began writing cookbooks, restaurant reviews for local newspapers and magazines, and back to her first love – teaching cooking classes, once again.
