Culinary Program

Our culinary program is eclectic and evolving every day. Our kitchen was designed to give the feeling of cooking in your home's kitchen, escaping the extreme perfectly stocked demo kitchens of other culinary programs.  Join us and engage in developing and/or improving skills to make cooking fun, nutritious and delicious.  Our in-house staff provides an array of classes and we are honored to have guest Chefs from across the Southeast and beyond, join us from time to time to share their talents and teach special classes.
All classes begin at 5:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted.  Reservations are required to hold a space.  Cancellations outside of 48 hours will receive a full refund.
