“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 over 35 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.

January note: we have made the difficult decision to delay the start of our “mini” session of Cooking School until at least February 7 due to the contagious nature of the new COVID variant. Students who had registered for the January 10 - February 7 will receive a refund, and be given priority when these classes are rescheduled.

We were delighted to announce that we will start classes up again in January with a “mini” schedule that runs through through March. We now hope to be able to start the session in February. Vaccination is required, and students will be asked to wear masks unless sampling a dish.

Please limit your registration to a single class in this abbreviated session so that as many people as possible can come to one. Thank you for your understanding!

Space is limited, and registrations are not held until payment is processed. If you have a Cooking School gift certificate, please enter the gift code after you add the class to your cart. If you are using an Orange Tree Imports gift card (plastic swipe card), please call us at 608-255-8211 to process your reservation. We regret that our kitchen is on the second floor and is not wheelchair accessible. Students must be 18 years or older and fully vaccinated.
