School Notes:
You’ll receive a complete recipe packet and enjoy a full sit-down meal at the end of class with your classmates. Our classes are BYOB, and you are welcome to bring a bottle to share at the sit-down meal.

Our classes are hands-on, coupled with demonstration-style teaching. Everyone is situated at their own cutting board/chef’s knife station around a large wooden worktable that accommodates the whole class (10 people max). We work together as a group, with the chef at the head of the table.

We focus on knife skills, preparing ingredients for cooking, and we strive to find every opportunity to offer you a hands-on experience at the stove and at your station, all within the spacial parameters of a single stove/family-style kitchen. We ask for volunteers to assist in all cooking.

While it is not in our nature to say no, we are not able to offer credit/refund for last-minute illnesses or work-related conflicts. However, you are always welcome to send someone in your place, because we understand these things do happen.

I throughly enjoyed the class. I learned very valuable skills, the skill level around me made me feel comfortable to try new things, and I loved Erica. She was very straight to the point but friendly, too. I’m hoping to come back for the steak class I enjoyed it so much!

John was such an incredible teacher. The class was utterly perfect from the moment we walked in until we left. We were comfortable, thoroughly entertained, but most of all very inspired to cook! Being very much a beginner cook its pretty amazing how much confidence in my abilities I came away with. Highly recommended!
