Each year, we offer more than 600 contemporary cooking classes and demonstrations in the culinary arts covering a wide range of topics and taught by qualified, experienced instructors.
Our goal is to de-mystify the art of cooking and provide a comfortable, non-threatening environment for our students, because we believe that the most important things in life happen around the table. So, why not have great food on it? Regardless of their level of culinary expertise, each student can enjoy a wonderful cooking experience in our kitchens (or theirs). Whether you want to sit back and watch, roll up your sleeves and get in on the action or just dabble a little, we have the perfect class for you.
Here are some descriptions of our classes but be sure and check out the entire schedule. It's a masterpiece of culinary education!
Our Flavorful Weekend Night™ classes are just that....unique and tasty hands-on culinary experiences on weekend nights, most of which are hands-on! Movie, Schmovie.... why not learn to cook with your friends, dates or your "luvva"? They are the perfect mix of culinary education and fun night out!
