Cooking Classes


Our Cooking Classes provide you with hands-on instruction in a friendly setting. We draw on the unique chefs and caterers in the Fredericksburg region to teach our classes. We provide the entertainment, food and wine and you have all the fun!

Cooking Classes


Our Chefs lead our participants through hands-on preparation of two to three dishes, which means that most participants will be standing for the duration of the classes. Limited seating is available.

10% Discount in the Kitchen Store!

All participants will receive 10% off any purchases made in the Kitchen Store on the day of the class.



Reservations are required for Cooking Classes. Your spot will not be reserved until payment is made in full, and no refunds will be issued less than 48 hours before the class takes place.
