We offer both traditional and contemporary hands-on cooking classes designed for every skill level from the novice to the foodie. Our classes are taught by qualified, experienced instructors (meet the chefs).

Our class sizes are small to offer the most individualized attention and hands-on opportunities. Students will generally work in small groups in class. 

Students will taste food prepared in class, either along the way, or all at the end of class. In many classes students will sit down at the dining table to enjoy their meal at the end of the class time. Trust us, you will not go away hungry! 


We offer a wide range of class categories:

Cooking Fundamentals
These classes emphasize  technique; single and series classes designed for all skill levels to enhance culinary skills. We put the ‘fun” in culinary fundamentals!

Everyday Cooking
