Class begins at 3pm unless otherwise specified. Cost is $60 per person plus tax and includes instruction, recipes and the full meal afterward.

Students get to select the menu they would like to prepare from the below options. (Note: Menu is subject to amendment based upon seasonal fresh ingredients.) The class will include instruction on basic skills as well as discussion about spices, pantry, technique and more as applicable.
