Everything you need to know
All our classes start with a short presentation of the rules of the kitchen, and the dishes you will prepare. After a short demonstration from our chef, you will work with your team mate to recreate the dishes. The class with alternate between demonstration and hands-on cooking depending on the number of dishes prepared. Throughout the class, the chef will also teach you various techniques relevant to the dishes you are cooking so you leave with skills you can use forever at home.
Your class, as a group, will prepare the menu in its entirety; however, some of the components of the dishes will be prepared ahead by the chef if they do require longer cooking or preparation times, than the class allows for. Most classes end with the class sitting down as a group and eating the delicious dishes prepared by yourself. This is a time for sharing, connecting with your friends, and other class members, and asking as many questions as you’d like to our chef.
