The hands-on classes at Cook Academy are perfect for cooks of every level, whether you spend all your free time in the kitchen or leave the cooking to someone else. Our renowned chefs love to share their passion for food and are patient, supportive instructors who guide you step by step through the preparation of a delicious meal. You can expect to acquire new cooking techniques or hone the skills you already have, plus learn industry insights that can help you entertain at home.
Classes are small, so each student gets personalized instruction. Most classes include a three- or four-course meal, and, best of all, you get to eat your results and take the recipes home with you. Class offerings vary throughout the year depending on the season and availability of fresh ingredients.
