Cooking Classes
Finally – it’s time to choose a class! We have 5 different levels of classes based upon ability. Please choose the class that is closest to your skill level. The classes are designed to take your skills at the chosen level and improve upon them. So if you choose "intermediate", for example, we assume you are currently at that level and looking to move upwards, not trying to improve to intermediate.

Our classes fill up fast, so make sure you sign up quickly! If a class is filled out, please email us at info@chefalyssaskitchen.com to be added to the waiting list, which will be first come first serve. Be sure to check out our refund and non-refundable policies as well.

Each class is designed based upon the products available that season. For example, tomatoes may be involved in many classes in the summer but not at all during the winter. We also allow BYOB for beer and wine only for all of our classes!

Remember, even if the classes listed here do not work for you, by joining our newsletter you’ll receive first notice about new classes that as they become available!

    You have no idea where to start and it usually results in tear. We will teach you how to cut an onion.
