We are passionate about topping your list of culinary experiences – so whether you’re a kid, a couple, or a corporate team builder, we cater our classes to fit your needs.

Technique Based Classes

Tired of being tied to a recipe? Join us for one of our technique based classes. Taking cues from culinary school curriculums, School of Food technique based classes equip students with comprehensive, fundamental knowledge to become a true master chef, while honing essential culinary skills and preparation techniques. Students will leave class with the building blocks behind creating their own flavor profiles, and the skills to seriously transform their time kitchen.


Cuisine Based Classes

From Molecular Gastronomy and Spanish Tapas, to bread and pasta making, our cuisine based classes focus on the unique gastronomy of a particular region or culinary tradition. Students will learn the background and history behind the cuisine, while preparing classic dishes that highlight the fundamental techniques and ingredients of that unique food tradition.


Competitive Style Classes

Summon the world class chef inside of you, and join us for a competitive food experience in School of Food’s own kitchen stadium! In our Iron Chef style class, participants team up and compete to create a full course meal using a secret ingredient and their choice of meat, produce and other ingredients from SOF’s fully stocked pantry. Teams are judged based on culinary scores such as taste, creativity (use of the secret ingredient) and presentation. From menu building to kitchen-style teamwork, this competitive food experience is collaborative and loads of fun!


Group Classes

Make your corporate or special event into a culinary experience! We offer both corporate team building workshops and private group classes for all types of special events. Participants can choose from any of our current class offerings, and our events are catered to meet your needs. Interested in learning a particular menu? We got you. Get a group together and we’ll work with you to customize your very own class!
