FAQS

How do I register for a class?

If you’re interested in one of our diploma classes, you must first register with our Admissions Department. They will schedule a time for you to tour the campus and begin the application process.

If you’re interested in one of our Series or Recreational Classes, you must first choose the campus you’d like to attend and then visit that campus calendar. Search for the class in the search box above the calendar. When you’ve navigated to that class, click the title and follow instructions to reserve your seat.

What classes do you offer in the coming months?

Our Series and Recreational classes vary seasonally; each quarterly campus catalog contains class descriptions, times, and pricing. To download the latest PDF, visit our catalog page.

When is the next diploma program offered?

Our diploma programs are offered at both campuses and have rotating start dates throughout the year. Our student catalog outlines all of the culinary and baking programs offered at both our Culver City and Pasadena campuses. To download the latest PDF, visit our catalog page. You can also contact our admissions department to get started in the enrollment process.

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. 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?

Pasadena:
Students should check into the parking structure at 42 S. Madison Ave. 91101. Pull into the surface lot across from Urth where it says $6.00. The parking attendant will have your name on a list and give you a free parking voucher. Be sure to set an appointment with our staff beforehand.

Culver City:
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 844-895-4224.

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

Yes!

Should I bring my own knives to the knife skills 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 844-895-4224.

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

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