Attention Foodies! Our Open Kitchen cooking class program, led by Chef Instructor Eli Silverthorne, is running through September, and has something for everyone!
‘Get Cooking!’ classes are intensive workshops focused on themed recipes, such as our classes on Vegetarian cooking, and a variety of International cuisines like Spain, Greece, China, India, Israel, and others.
‘How Do I Use That?’ classes are informative workshops that demonstrate new-to-you kitchen tools or gadgets such as Knife Sharpening, Immersion Circulators for sous vide, and Smokers.
‘Trade Secrets’ focuses on exploring a cooking technique, dish or product, such as quick meals, the ultimate burger, fast fermented breads, pasta-making, and more.
Classes are hands-on and limited in size. Check out the schedule and book your spots early!
