What should I bring to class?

Wear long pants and closed toed shoes, and if you have long hair, please tie it back.  Please, no perfume.  The only thing you need to bring to class is an apron if you want to wear one and be sure to bring a pen to take some notes.  If you want to write notes on paper, bring paper, or you can write on the handouts.  We will provide everything else, including a packet of recipes.

Where do I park?

We have metered parking in front of the school.  The cost is $1 an hour and $2 buys you two hours.  It’s relaxed enough to feed the meters during class. At night and on Sundays, you can park at any meter for free.  We share a small parking lot on the east end of the building with the other tenants.  If you can find a spot there, take it!

Can I bring food home?

No.  You may eat the food prepared in the class while you are here, but food does not leave the premises.  We do make exceptions for some of the baking classes.

Before signing up for a Pro Series class, can I observe a class?

Yes! Please call the office to schedule a time to audit a class. Our number is 310.842.9702.

Can I take Pro I and Pro Baking at the same time?


Should I bring my own knives to the knife skills class?

Pro Series and Rec class students do not need to bring their own knives. We will provide them.

Do I need to know how to cook before taking a recreational class?

No, the recreational classes are open to any experience level.  That said, the very best place to start if you are a beginner is with a knife skills class or Basic Cooking.  Most specialty classes assume a basic level of proficiency and term recognition.

Can I tour the school?

Yes! Please call us to arrange a meeting and/or a tour, or just drop by to talk to a member of the staff or faculty. Our number is 310.842.9702.

Can I book the school for a party or special event?

Availability is limited, but we will accommodate requests whenever possible.
