A great find

I went to the Dirty Apron for lunch with a group of friends, and we were all very impressed. This is a cooking school with a gourmet deli-style counter where you order your meal from. The options are impressive, including grilled baguettes and sandwiches, pastries, soups, salads, etc. Everything... read more

My lovely partner and I attended the French cuisine cooking course on Sunday October 26th as part of our anniversary celebration. We went there with absolutely no expectations and happened to be untouchably professional and enjoyable event that deserves 5 stars. Thank you for those 4 delicious fun hours.

Awesome facility with lots of great chefs to teach. You get your own mini kitchen and cook a set menu with hands on instruction, eating along the way. Great way to learn.

I took the French cooking course last evening and just have to comment on what a terrific experience it was! We prepared two "main" courses (beef tenderloin and sea bass) and finished with a melt-in-your-mouth chocolate soufflé. The cooking tips that the chef provided were applicable to so much more than the recipes we were cooking and I really appreciated... More

I recently spent a glorious, educational evening attending a cooking lesson/dinner/party at this downtown restaurant/cooking school. It was a hoot! The chef was personable, knowledgeable and skilled. The staff were incredibly efficient and helpful. The ingredients were top notch, fresh and innovative. The wine was good quality and plentiful. After a glass of champagne and appetizers, we "went to work"... More

Just looking at the reviews makes me want to return. We really didn't know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised to find that EVERYONE participated and it wasn't just a couple thing. I got to watch my husband make crab cakes, soft shell crab, aioli and he did it with flair while I worked in the next station doing... More

Went to a recent Friday night class and it was great. Lasted a good 4 hours and the quality and amount of food that we cooked and ate was awesome. I don't think anyone there could finish everything because there was so much. Cool casual atmosphere, not too much chance screwing up your food as they have it easily laid... More

Reviewing the Dirty Apron is a bit tricky for it is many things - a store with some very special products, a deli with great sandwiches, and a brilliantly designed and conceived cooking school. We experienced it all and feel comfortable recommending it all. Of special note is the cooking school. The facilities are outstanding with each student having their... More
