“I can’t say enough positive things about the Cooking School class I attended!”

Jan O.

Cooking School

Our Cooking School has been teaching home cooks everything from pizza making to the creation of elegant holiday buffets for 40 years. We have a reputation for intimate, informal classes on a wide range of topics taught by local chefs and other esteemed experts. It’s easy to register online.

Our Cooking School is now on break until September. Watch for the class schedule announcement in August!
