Pam P. says, "Ken arrived promptly and with a multitude of supplies. He taught us how to make a number of versatile sauces and vinaigrettes that we could use with salads, meats, etc. He also showed us knife techniques and made some great wings, chicken, and a killer mango salsa . We enjoyed it and learned a lot and the teens even stuck around for most of it which is saying something! The sauces we made will keep for months as well. " Read more

Kandiss F. says, "I'm very happy I decided to step out of my comfort zone and reach out to Katrina with The Empowered Kitchen. I am not comfortable cooking and I really don't enjoy it. I decided it was time to change my attitude and experience in the kitchen and I wanted to include my two daughters as well. From the start, Katrina has been professional, kind, reliable, knowledgeable, organized and she listened to my needs and wants. She has also been completely non-judgemental regarding my skills and knowledge, which made me feel comfortable from the start. I usually dread spending time in the kitchen (and shopping) but I actually enjoyed myself and I learned so much! Katrina made it fun and low-stress -- I actually felt relaxed! My girls had fun and learned a lot, too! There were many new flavors for them and I'm happy they tried several new foods! Everything we prepared was delicious! All of us cooking together, with Katrina as our teacher, was a wonderful, bonding family experience. Thank you, Katrina! I can't wait to see what we do in our next cooking class! " Read more

Your cooking questions, answered

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:

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