Grab a friend and join us for a unique cooking experience in our quaint, professional home kitchen. Pick one class or a series and delve into ingredients, recipes and techniques in a fun and casual small group environment that will leave you with fantastic memories and valuable skills that you'll want to share with your whole family.

Led by professional chef Kevin Demarco, our classes are crafted for all skill levels and culminate with conversation over cuisine at our family dining table as we enjoy the fruits of our labor.

We believe that food is good for the body and cooking is good for the soul.

Kevin's cooking classes are hands on and a lot of fun. He brings his culinary expertise and teaches us how to prepare delicious food. I even bring my teenage daughters! The classes have encouraged us to try new foods and cook in a healthy way. I highly recommend taking Kevin's cooking classes. It will change the way you look at food!
