This was a real letdown. The instructors talk a lot and prepare most of the food for the meal. Not a lot of hands on for the actual participants. So you are paying a lot to watch people cook. It is kind of like just...watching one of the cooking channels. I've been to much better cooking classes where participants actually have to do the prep work so you understand the techniques used in the preparation of the meal. Also the kitchen is not setup to handle everyone cooking and prepping. I hate to say it but you can get some of the same types of classes for free at some of your major cookware stores and you get to sample the food. Also be mindful of some of the information you are given. For those that don't know all salt is sea salt. That is not what you are told in the class. The types of salt you buy are based upon refinement and location of the deposit that is mined.More

I had been to Cook Street years ago for a class and had fun memories of being elbow-deep in the cooking. There were 8 ranges/stoves, so each couple (16 people total) got to do quite a bit of work in the kitchen. This time, for...$120 (food and welcome cocktail included but no other drinks - not even a glass of wine with dinner), we walked in to a demonstration kitchen. One range/grill and a lot of seating (20 people). The class is fine, albeit pricey, if you want to watch others cook. It's NOT fine if you want to prepare a meal yourself. You get to taste sauces (on single-use plastic spoons - just no!) as they go, and occasionally get do to things (de-bearding mussels, searing a steak - imagine 10 people at a time queuing up to do this), but it's just not what I was hoping for. I'd skip it unless paying to watch others cook is your thing. Of course, there's restaurants where you can do that...More

Hi gmbeid, I'm sorry to hear you didn't experience as much hands-on as you would have preferred! Some menus are easier to be more hands-on than others. Would you mind letting me know which class you attended? We always appreciate the feedback. Also, when you...More

Completed the 3 month school a few years back. Had a great time and it was perfect for me. Didn't want to do a two year school, cook street was great because they give you great basic skills that allow you to build from. I'd...love to go back in time and do it all over again.More

We attend a small corporate event here with spouses and significant others. It was a perfect venue to get to know each other and mingle beyond the typical cocktail and dinner thing. While we didn’t really get a chance to take in the cooking side...of things; my first impression is they do a very good job and are professional and personable. The food was of high quality and presentation. We will look to take a class and give it another try and would recommend without any reservations. I see this place as a perfect date night or get together with friends or family.More

My daughter surprised me with a cooking class for making sushi. It was fun to do a mother daughter cooking class together.

We went to the wood-fired pizza class. It was very informative. We made our own pizza dough, made fresh mozzarella from cheese curds, they demonstrated making pizza sauce, and then everyone could essentially make as many pizzas as they wanted. They also talked about how...to do it at home with an oven. The food was outstanding! It would make a great date night and we were glad we spent an evening of our trip at their class.More

Grab your significant other and try one of the "Date Night" events. It is a really fun experience to learn some techniques. I was a beginner and my wife an expert, but we both learned and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. And had a great meal...made by our own hands!More

I travel internationally for work, so we come here from time to time when the stars align and my schedule in town coincides with a date night cooking class they've scheduled has a menu I want to learn. Wine pairings are usually interesting and ample....The lessons are engaging and fun. We like to do these date night cooking classes and demos all over the world. I've been to a few that were better, or lower priced, but in Denver, Cook Street is my go to for this.More

We had so much fun and learned some great techniques from Renu and Barb. It was a 'try it to see how you like it' kind of deal...and we loved it!
