Dear Foodies,

The one thing you can count on is that we will always stay on the cutting edge (sorry about the pun) of all things culinary. We really rattle our whisks to come up with new and different ways to provide exceptional culinary education and unique food-related events, all in the interest of exposing you to the beautiful things that happen around the table. That's not to say we abandon the basics though. Oh no, we couldn't do that! You'll find classes on the fundamentals of cooking right alongside our creative food events! In any case, we are committed to making your experience fun, informative and exceptional. Speaking of extraordinary, we are thrilled to announce our new Pro Series Cookware - high-quality commercial grade cookware designed for the home cook. It'll not only make you a better cook but will also awaken the Inner Cooking God/Goddesses in you with inspirational food quotes etched into each pan. (For real.) Now that, my friends, is what we call cutting edge. I'm just sayin'!

We hope to see you in our kitchens.

Laura Laiben
Owner and "Main Dish"
