Event Calendar

Our cooking classes are hands-on events where everyone participates. We work hard to make sure our guests learn more than just how to prepare a few dishes; we try to give everyone the confidence to experiment at home and a deeper understanding of the science behind cooking.

Our classes are great to attend as a group with family and friends, or to sign up for individually and meet others who share your passion for cooking.  Classes range in size from 24-34 students and include a family style meal at the end of the class. Our cooking classes also make fabulous gifts!
