Cooking with a Partner Classes

Couples, friends, and family members divide into chef-coached teams that each create and plate one course in a multi-course meal enjoyed by the entire class. While dining, participants share the tips and secrets that lead to successful execution of each recipe.

Upon completion of the meal, diners vote by popular acclaim the favorite dish of the evening. This is our most popular class format – be sure to sign up early to enjoy it with your favorite cooking partner!
