Where Is The Course Taught?

The Kitchen Academy is taught in a professional kitchen where you will have plenty of room to work and learn.

How Is This Course Different From Other Cooking Classes?

Most cooking courses are recipe driven.  This means they teach you how to cook a single recipe.

The Kitchen Academy teaches you technique.  Yes, you will receive a booklet of recipes that you will cook in class.

But the primary focus of the class is to teach you technique – the hows and whys behind a recipe so that you develop the technique and skill to be creative in the kitchen.

Learning in this way means you can cook just about anything and eventually you will free yourself from your addiction to recipes.

You will truly be fearless in the kitchen!
