Each hands on cooking class focuses on making a complete meal, or on making several dishes from a single category (such as all appetizers or all salads).  A typical class has 4 or 5 recipes and involves learning cooking techniques, shortcuts, knife skills and food safety.  You will receive recipes for all dishes made in the class and ideas for mixing and matching recipes.  Classes involve about 2 hours of cooking.  When the meal is complete, students sit down in our beautiful Burnt Bridge Cellars dining room for a relaxed lunch or dinner of your culinary creations.



All classes require a reservation.  A place will be held with full payment for the class. Personal checks or credit cards are accepted.
