Our Culinary Program offers a variety of subjects for everyone and at times that are convenient for you. Whether you enjoy getting your hands dirty or sit back and let us do the work; whether you want to learn about pizzas, pasta, ethnic cuisines or backyard grilling, we have the class that’s right for you. Spend a few hours or even a few days with us. In our single-subject classes you’ll learn new skills in just 2.5 hours that will last a lifetime. Or, enroll in one of our series classes and make new friends as you meet regularly to explore further into the topics as the series progresses. Guests do not need cooking experience to attend. For our motto is “Cooking Made Simple and Fun”. The price includes cooking instruction by professional chefs, great food using the freshest ingredients, copies of the recipes to recreate at home, and the fun of cooking with new acquaintances.
We reserve the right to substitute ingredients and menu items due to availability and market freshness. However, we will make every effort to remain true to our posted menu.
Our hands-on classes give you an opportunity to learn techniques and apply them. Working closely with an instructor and using professional appliances, cookware and cutlery, you and a small group of classmates learn cooking techniques by actually preparing the menu items. All hands-on workshops are limited to 12 students.
In our demonstration classes, students learn by watching the instructor prepare the menu while providing step-by-step procedures for each dish. This relaxed, interactive format encourages informative discussions to help you prepare the dishes with confidence at home.
For students interested in a truly instructive culinary experience, our series classes offer more in-depth instruction over a period of days or weeks. Our Three-Day Culinary Basics class is a series of workshops in which students learn the basic cooking techniques by actually participating in the preparation.
Family Fun Nights
Family Fun Night cooking classes are a unique culinary experience which offers classes to adults and children in a environment that encourages discovery and creativity. These classes are a great way to spend some one-on-one time with your child, and expose them to some new delicious food while teaching them the joy and value of cooking.
Basic and Advanced private cooking classes for individuals or groups are available in your home. A basic class includes learning knife skills, kitchen safety, and recipes that are simple, healthy, and delicious. Advanced cooking classes include learning a particular cuisine, or cooking skill. All private cooking classes or "cooking party" are hands-on in your own kitchen, with your own equipment. Plan on spending about 2 to 3 hours per cooking lesson depending upon what kind of food is being prepared. Private cooking classes are scheduled at a mutually agreeable time. The price varies depending on your group size, menu, and location, call for more information. Private Classes in our Professional Kitchen, and demonstration private cooking classes are also available.
We suggest you dress casually and comfortably. In our hands-on classes for safety and sanitation purposes, we ask that all students cover or tie back hair, wear long pants, a shirt with sleeves, and flat comfortable closed-toed shoes in the kitchen. An apron will be provided for your use during class.
