Cooking Classes

Due to COVID-19 our classes are on pause.  We are working to restructure our demonstration classes for the safety of our community and our instructors.

     Develop a new skill | Expand your taste bud horizons | Just have fun


    Very simply, we want to help you cook better and feel more comfortable in the kitchen. We offer you better ways to get meals on the table using bolder flavors, easier techniques and combinations of ingredients that will take your cooking from good to great. We showcase delicious recipes, tips, and product selection/usage to help enhance the way you cook and enjoy food.

    Most of our classes are semi-participation, which means the instructor does the majority of the class in demonstration style, but calls up participants to help out at intervals in the class.  We find that this method lets all participants get the same great experience, and that those who want to get their hands dirty can do so, while those that want to observe, sit back and relax can do that too.


    Which class is right for you?   

    We offer an exciting variety of cuisine and technique classes in a fun and relaxed environment at our downtown Wooster store location. We are thrilled to share our passion for cooking real food bursting with authentic flavor!

    Have a special event? We can customize private cooking classes for birthdays, bridal showers, etc. Call us at 330-804-0400 to discuss the details.
