- Do students participate in the cooking?
Yes, we welcome our students to participate in the hands-on cooking classes, where we’ll teach you both cooking basics and advanced culinary techniques. The chef instructor will help guide students and do some demonstrations throughout class. Based out of our kitchen studio, you’ll be provided with both the skill and tools need to prepare a four-course meal (usually 5), as well as the time to sit down and eat it properly together. Check out our events page to see what is being offered currently or to find the perfect theme night for you.
NOTE: All menus subject to foods available and in season. If you have any allergies, please let us know ahead of class to accommodate.
