DelecTable Cooking Classes

Whether you're a beginner who's looking to learn the basics or a seasoned pro looking to perfect your skills, our professional chef-taught classes are sure to teach you something new.

Each class is packed with information, hands-on learning, and of course, delicious food! You'll learn about different cooking techniques, flavor pairings, and more, all while enjoying a meal that you helped create. DelecTable cooking classes are the perfect way to add some excitement to your culinary routine and impress your friends and family with your new skills.

Our classes are small – usually 16 people or fewer – so you get personal attention from our chef instructors. You will work as a group as you join in the fun to prepare the menu.
