Cooking Classes

Chef's CollageCome and learn how to cook from our resident Chefs Roberta DesBouillons, Alan Tangren and Dawn Empson. We offer hands on cooking classes that are as entertaining as they are educational.  We limit our classes to 14 people so everyone gets a chance to participate. At the end of the class you will enjoy the fruits of your labor as you sit down and eat with your new found friends. You will leave with all of the recipes used during the class, great memories and hopefully with a few new friends!
