Are you interested in Culinary School, but don't have the time or money? Have you been cooking for years and just want something new and exciting? Are you a novice interested in getting in the kitchen for the first time? Then the Fundamentals classes are the ones for you!
These classes are for those who are serious about learning how to cook. We offer 20 different courses to choose from throughout the year that can be taken in any order (except Knife Skills 2, which must be taken after Knife Skills 1).
As always, we provide you with a relaxing and warm environment for learning, and have the best instructors who are passionate about teaching. For those who complete all 20 courses, we will give both a Certificate of Completion in the Culinary Arts as well as a Chef Jacket embroidered with your name on it. This Certificate is valid to prove your completion and can be used to gain employment, should you choose to follow a career in Food.
We're so confident you'll learn more than in any other class offered by the competition that we guarantee it or your next class is on us!
