We teach hands on and demonstration style communal cooking classes, and with us you’ll will learn to cook shoulder to shoulder with one of our seasoned instructors. We focus on simple cooking skills that we believe are the foundation of simple and approachable cooking. Our goal is for everyone that learns to cook with to use their skills everyday to enrich their lives through making their own food, for themselves and their family and friends.
