Q: How do the cooking classes work?
A: First, you head over to our website( looks like you are already here). Next head to the “Classes” tab on our homepage. Here you will see the calendar 1 month at a time. Click on a class to learn more. Like what you see? Book it right there in the link.
Next, show up on the date of your class. All classes are 2 hours unless otherwise noted. It is is about 1 hour 45 min of hands-on learning guided by industry pofessionals. You will finish each class with a meal or lite bite depending on the class (Check the class menu for what you will be eating.) We take care of the rest( aka we clean up, so you don’t have to!)
