Culinary Arts

 Our public classes offer “hands on” and classroom learning by industry professionals. Culinary classes will adopt a “Learn it by doing it” approach to the skills you need to impress family and friends at your next gathering.  Other classes will offer detailed instruction and professional certifications to enhance your knowledge on a specific topic related to food, culinary arts and agriculture. Material fees (ingredients, supplies, etc.) are included in the cost. Please inform us of any food allergies.
