Achieve pasta perfection

Learn how to make pasta from scratch at our cooking classes in LA. 
It’s hard to go wrong with a bowl of pasta in your favorite sauce. If saying tagliatelle, penne, and gnocchi is speaking your language a fresh pasta making class sounds right for you. Get step-by-step instructions for making your favorite pasta from scratch using simple ingredients and easy techniques. 
These classes transport you to the heart of Italy, where pasta isn't just a dish — it's a way of life. With chefs who have honed their skills in professional kitchens, you'll watch and learn by observing in-depth demonstrations on how to mix, knead, and roll out dough. Then you’ll shape or cut out your pasta by hand. You’ll also make the perfect sauce to complement your noodles, from fresh tomato to rich meat sauces to go with your ravioli or fettucini.Make fresh pasta at our Los Angeles cooking classes. 
Take it to the mat with a sushi class

Make sushi like a pro with our cooking classes in LA.

If you’ve sat at the counter watching a sushi chef create delicious nigiri and handrolls, you know how engaging it is to see how your favorites are made. Now you can be a part of the action when you take a sushi making class in LA. 

You’ll work with an expert who will show you how to create spicy tuna or California rolls using a sushi mat and a little bit of practice. You don’t need to be as precise as a sushi chef since the point of the class is to have fun learning a new skill. The best part is enjoying an amazing meal after your work is complete.

This is the ideal interactive team building experience. Get your co-workers together for a special meal and a memorable night of bonding. Need to plan a 40th birthday party or a bachelorette bash? Cooking classes let everyone socialize while doing a fun activity together. Enjoy a glass of wine while putting together an Instagram worthy meal!

Indulge in French pastries

Make your favorite French pastries at our LA cooking classes.

The mere thought of French pastries conjures images of flaky croissants, delicate éclairs, and fruit-filled tarts. You can get the feeling of being in Paris by way of baking classes in Los Angeles with our workshops.

It may seem intimidating to make desserts as a beginner, but with the help of professional bakers you’ll be able to do it with ease. With step-by-step instructions you’ll learn skills like laminating dough, making choux, and piping cream fillings. Whether you are dabbling in a new interest or you have bake off dreams, this is a fun way to get started.

This is a creative experience that makes an ideal date idea. Bring your partner along and work together on a fruit galette or chocolate croissants. Or if you like the idea of a group outing, bring your friends and make all your favorite French bakery favorites to share. You’ll gain confidence in your newfound baking game and be able to replicate these sweet treats in your own kitchen.
