Compliments are received with modest thanks and shy, appreciative smile I enjoy the creativity and design that go into playing the dish. I always enjoy shopping for ingredients. Meeting farmers and distributors and searching at farmers markets, co-ops and ranches. But the best is the discovery of new and unorthodox methods in using them.

Cooking came very early to me as I was raised on a farm in Brittany, France where we ate everything we grew and raised. Equally early and just as strong came my passion for travelling which brought me to America for a year when I was 17 and back to live at 22 in San Francisco. With my different career paths and personal interests I have been lucky to travel a few many good places in the world, as I always have been wanting to learn from other cultures, especially via cuisine and music. My style of cooking is pragmatic with solid dishes full of flavor and soul. I look forward to meeting and cooking with you!...

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do cooking classes cost near me?

Cooking classes cost $60 to $140 per person for a one-time in-person class or $200 to $500 for a class including three to five sessions where you'll learn to create different meals from a specific region or type of cuisine. Online cooking classes cost $20 to $100.

The cost of cooking classes depends on:

  • Class length
  • Group class vs. private lesson
  • Beginner or advanced skill level
  • Type of cuisine
  • Recipe difficulty
  • Chef's or instructor's reputation
  • Location
  • Hands-on vs. demonstration-only
  • Whether the class focuses on teaching a specific culinary technique or recipe or is a collaborative class where each student prepares one part of the overall menu

How long are cooking classes?

In-person cooking classes typically last 2 to 3 hours, depending on the class type and size, whether it's hands-on or demonstration-only, and the cuisine type. Most online cooking classes are 1 to 2 hours long.

What types of cooking classes are there?

Cooking classes range from introductory lessons that teach you basic culinary techniques to advanced classes that teach you how to prepare a five-course meal from scratch. Date night classes are a popular way to bond with your partner while learning how to prepare delicious meals.

Common cooking class types and topics include:

  • French cuisine
  • Italian cuisine
  • Asian cuisine
  • Vegetarian cuisine
  • Baking
  • Breadmaking
  • Handmade pasta
  • Sushi
  • Date night cooking class
  • Kids cooking class
  • Family cooking class
  • Knife skills

Should I tip the cooking class instructor?

Tipping the instructor at a group cooking class is not expected. If you enjoy the class, post a positive review online and consider sharing photos and the school's information on social media.

For private classes from a chef, tip 15% to 25% for exemplary service.

How can I find the best cooking classes near me?

A cooking class can help you master the basics, learn advanced culinary techniques, explore new ingredients and cuisines, and boost your confidence in the kitchen. Follow these tips to help you find the best class for you:

  • Decide whether you want to take a group class, date night class, or private lesson.
  • Choose a class focusing on the type of cuisine you want to create.
  • Read reviews from past students on Lessons and Google.
  • Confirm whether the class is hands-on or demonstration-only.
  • Ask about class size, schedule, and supplies needed.
  • Let the instructor know ahead of time if you have a food allergy.

What questions should I ask before signing up for cooking classes?

Ask these questions to help you choose the cooking class that best suits your needs:

  • What cooking techniques or recipes will I learn in the class?
  • What is the typical class size?
  • Will I make my own items or is it a collaborative class where each student makes part of the meal?
  • Do I need to bring anything special with me?
  • Are the classes hands-on or demonstration-only?
  • Will we get to eat the food we prepare at the end of class?
  • Can I take leftover food home with me?
  • Do you offer private classes?
  • Can I buy a class as a gift for someone else?
  • Are there any age restrictions?
  • What if I have food allergies?
