What's on the menu for your visit?

Try your hand in the kitchen with age-appropriate tools and fresh ingredients. We offer public cooking classes, fee-based workshops, live demos, or delicious samples of homemade food in The Teaching Kitchen. Each month features a different theme. In March, we're cooking up after school snacks and in April, we'll explore sustainable cooking.
