A friend and I signed up for the Sheet Pan Cooking class with Chef Rhonda Kite. We had a terrific time. Chef Rhonda is a gifted chef and teacher, as well as being an engaging, warm and funny person. The food that she prepared was...delicious and the many tips that she gave throughout the class were quite helpful. What we really liked about the class was how she instilled confidence in all of the participants. The fact that she would alter a recipe as she went, reminded us that she was offering us a framework for a delicious dish and that it was up to us to enhance or change the ingredients or seasonings to fit our particular flavor profiles. My biggest regret is that I live half a continent away and that I can’t take advantage of more classes here.More

A friend and I finally decided to have fun and signed up for one of their cooking classes. It ended up being a Thai night which was right up my alley. We had so much fun and learned how to cook dishes I normally wouldn't...feel comfortable cooking. After the class we felt like master chef's. I highly recommend if you are a foodie, or just staring out to cook your first nice meal, or to just learn a few things. It was fun, informative and delicious! A truly great experience just on your own, or if you have friends in town that want to do something unusual.More

Not really a cooking class but more of a product pitch. Selling knives and shilling for insta-pot and Trader Joe's. The knife salesperson just happened to be in attendance, what a coincidence. Some good tips, so we give it 2 stars, but we shouldn't have...to pay for someone's sales pitch. Would avoid.More

We were at this cooking class about a month ago where the theme was couples cooking. The couples were seated in a u shape with the chef at the front prepping and cooking food. It was very entertaining and the atmosphere was quite jovial! The...chef was very knowledgeable and the portions were reasonable. The food itself was very tasty and we were provided with recipes so that we could prepare these creations in our own kitchen! The price was reasonable considering that it was for the dinner and the class. They had a very nice selection of wines that were offered at very reasonable prices as well! I would definitely go back and enjoy this unique dining experience!More

Upon arriving for our class we discovered that it was overbooked and that we would be positioned at a table behind the main group that was seated around the large island. Consequently, we left without attending. We felt that the experience would not be worthwhile...because our view of the chef would have been largely if not entirely obscured. I had taken a class there before and knew from personal experience that the people seated around the island interact as one group and share all of the action right in front of them. That is hardly comparable to watching the chef from ceiling mirrors while facing the backs of the members of the group. The owner, who wasn’t there on the day of the class, was not at all apologetic and was, in fact, very rude and offensive in her correspondence with me. I would not recommend this business to anyone and I will definitely not patron it again.More

I love this place! Great chefs and wine specialists take you on a wonderful journey through foods and wines. I've enjoyed a paint night and two food and wine pairings. A lovely outing to meet new people and enjoy excellent foods and to learn. Check...out the class schedule online and the opportunity to volunteer! If you love food, wine and hospitality, you'll love Cooking with Class!More

Be there when they open becuz not sure they take reservations. Not alot of seating. Food is well prepared and their small menu changes often due to seasonal items available. Fresh, high quality ingredients. It can be casual or not, have wonderful selection of wines....I would say this is more of an adult restaurant due to the size and intimate setting for a nice evening out.More

We had a wonderful experience, so much fun! Both the class and the instructor "KK" were our fave part of the afternoon. Will be back for sure.

I am a Chef. The cooking classes were awful . . . the food prepared was very salty, and the 1 glass of wine that was included in this overpriced cooking class was not noteworthy! Each additional glass of this very low end wine (which...is referred to as a "special" wine) will run $5/glass!. I do not intend to go back. A total ripoff!More
