Chef John and his staff are so fun to learn from. This was our second company outing at the Cooking School and both times couldn't have been better. The food was delicious and we actually learned a few things to do at home. Great team building event.

My favorite dish from the day was the acorn squash bisque with a wisconsin cheddar basket filled with fresh beets from the local farmers market across the street. There was a wine tasting of Riesling which complimented all of the tasting while cooking. The best... More

The food was very good, but what makes this five star is the sum of the experience. From getting to know each other over mimosas or n/a sparkling juice, to the fun and informative visit to the fresh farmers market across the street, to yummy recipes cooked by attendees under the close eye of the Chef, to the great cooking...

My thirteen year old child is an aspiring chef. He participated in a kids cooking class at this cooking school. We were highly satisfied with this class. The kids made wonderful items and had a fantastic lunch. The chef was very good with the kids and made this cooking class a very fun experience.
