The Culinary Center of Kansas City

It all comes down to the basics doesn't it?  A drizzle of balsamic, a splash of extra virgin olive oil and a bit of Kosher salt and ground pepper over succulent tomatoes,  basil leaves and thin slices of fresh mozzarella, and you have the perfect example of how uncomplicated preparation and quality ingredients create astonishing flavor. 

Beautiful dishes like this are all around us.  We just need to discover them and learn to re-create them in our own kitchens.  I'm here to tell you that it really isn't hard.  Some basic cooking knowledge like knife skills along with elemental cooking techniques, preparation guidelines and simple rules for flavoring, and you're well on your way to better food and better living. 


This is where we come in.  At The Culinary Center of Kansas City, we have been teaching folks how to cook for 16 years now.  Our mission is to take the mystery out of cooking and provide you with the highest quality cooking instruction possible in a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.  Our instructors step in front of you with deep experience, passion for cooking and exceptional teaching skills.


We're here to expose you to the wonders of what happens around the table.  


Our Kitchen. Our Mission. Your Experience.
