When you love to eat, it helps to also love cooking

With our enthusiast classes, you can make a night of both. Drop in and deep-dive into everything from international cuisine to regional foodways, or try culinary school for a day with in-depth lessons on indispensable savory and pastry techniques. Prefer drinking to eating? We’ve also got classes to breathe life into your inner sommelier or mixologist.

Hands-on classes, capped at 16, start at $130/person. Students work on recipes in groups of two to three and we provide all cooking tools (though you can feel free to bring your own). Demonstration classes, which are capped at 25, start at $65/person and might include lectures, tastings, cooking demos, or a combination. All classes begin with an orientation, emphasize actionable skills, and include a full meal (with drink pairings!) so you never leave hungry.

Space is limited, so grab your tickets for a specific class or buy a gift certificate.
