Voted Best of the Best!

Look what’s cooking in Haddonfield! Release your inner chef at our deliciously fun, technique based, hands-on cooking classes. We have classes for every level-come play with us In The Kitchen, and then sit down to dine.. After all-it’s always about the food! 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!

Classes are hands-on and begin PROMPTLY at 6:30PM. 

Sunday classes begin at 1:00PM.

Please Call To Register:


Class tuition is $70 per person, per class, unless otherwise noted. Tuition is due at time of registration. At the end of class, we’ll sit down together to taste all the dishes we’ve created! You are welcome to bring your favorite wine or beer to pair with our menu.

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!

You are welcome to design your own series of three classes for $200 per student, and four classes for $265 per student.
