Hands-On Cooking Classes
Take a chance on Thai food or learn to roll out the perfect kiffle dough.

Our hands-on classes are led by professional chefs, bakers and caterers in the college's state-of-the-art teaching kitchen.
If cooking is your favorite spectator sport, you'll love our demonstration classes. Relax in our theatre-style demonstration kitchen at the Fowler Center while local chefs and restaurateurs give you the inside scoop on creating elegant hors d'oeuvres, rustic Irish fare, hearty Italian cuisine and more.
