Culinary Basics

Our Culinary Basics classes provide the foundation for cooking well. You'll learn what different foods are all about, how to use the tools in your kitchen, what the different cooking methods are and how to use them. You'll explore food like never before and learn the same techniques professional chefs use. From pots and pans to ingredients to finished dishes, our classes will enlighten, educate and excite you.

Our classes can be taken individually or by program, you chose! We can even structure a program specifically for your needs. Classes are hands on, 3 hours in length and are taught Monday through Saturday. There's no limit to what you'll achieve in the kitchen, it all starts with you at Alchemy of the Hearth.
