In the Kitchen Cooking School is dedicated to teaching real kitchen skills, not just a menu. So even though most classes present a cuisine, it is the underlying technique that informs our classes. Once you have learned proper cooking methods, let your imagination and palate take you on a culinary journey!

Private cooking parties – did you know that you can book a private event at In The Kitchen any night of the week? Bring your book group, host a birthday party, shower, bachelor or bachelorette party, or your gourmet and wine clubs and have a blast at In The Kitchen!
