“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.

We are looking forward to our winter session, which will start in mid-January! Watch for the class list to be posted soon. (Please note that masks are currently recommended but not required in our store.)

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.
