We wanted to create an environment where learning to cook was approached differently – where the focus is on learning by doing, using what you have, what’s in season – and most importantly by experimenting. By letting go of recipes and letting your confidence and instincts take over - plain and simple.

APPROACHABLE INTELLIGENCE

Though our Culinary Instructors are equipped with an arsenal of skills from their extensive backgrounds in professional kitchens and restaurants, our kitchen is no place for ego or intimidation. We are here to guide you, and to show you how to easily replicate restaurant techniques and mindsets at home, to help you cook from a place of confidence and instinct.

DEVELOPING CONFIDENCE

Developing culinary confidence is about playing with the process, exploring ingredients, and deepening your understanding of food - building and coaxing flavor out of ingredients. For us its not about adhering to recipes but rather letting go of them or using them as a guide or reference point.

COOKING IS CREATIVE!

We believe that cooking is creative. It's an imaginative, joyful, and improvisational act that both grounds us and sets us free. We also believe that food isn’t a culture sport but rather a valuable life skill that is as personal as it is important.

This was a lot of fun. Cook Space was a warm and welcoming environment. We had a knowledgable instructor & helpful TAs. This would be great as a date or an outing with friends or coworkers.

A fun class and we definitely did learn more about baking bread. My only disappointment was that I thought that the class was stronger on demonstration than on hands-on experience. For example, at one point there were several simultaneous in-class activities and we divided into three groups with each doing one of them -- I would have liked to have tried all three, but I guess there really wasn't enough time. That said, the class was still great fun, the bread was wonderful, the shared meal at the end was really nice, and the instructors and assistants were all very friendly and helpful.

Hi, This class cost $90 per person and was way too much for the quality of the content. I have done a few of these classes now and this class was definitely the worst: - Way too many people for the size of space. we were unable to cook without treading on everyone's toes. - We did not make our own pastry or pie, instead we paired up and we made one pastry between the two of us and a pie between several of us. - We did not make the filling, instead someone made the filling while we made the pastry, so you were unable to have a full experience. - We were not able to take a pie home each. - There were a few pies available but no boxes to take them home in. Overall the experience was a waste of money.

This was a fun Saturday afternoon activity. The atmosphere and space was really nice and we enjoyed the small class size. We learned some really delicious, new, healthy recipes that we got to enjoy at the end of class along with coffee and mimosas. This class is not the best for anyone that wants to learn any technical cooking skills, as it was mostly about combining and measuring ingredients.
