You’ll learn how to use local, seasonal produce and the delicious creations of local food artisans in new, interesting, and healthy ways. Our classes are unique, fun, affordable and designed to offer something for everyone.

We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have. Are you looking for a specific menu, have dietary restrictions, or curious as to which instructor is the best fit for you?
