cooking classes

 

Our cooking class themes change on a weekly basis! Each weekend, classes are offered at 11:00 am and 4:00 pm on Saturday. We offer the same class 2 times per weekend, so that we can keep the class size intimate. Each class is $70 per student. To sign up for class please call us at (323) 512-5544 or e-mail jenny@sporkfoods.com.

To sign up for a class via e-mail, please let us know the class of your choice, number of attendees, date and time that you prefer.

All cooking classes are approximately 2 – 2 ½ hours in length. Space is limited, so reserve your spot as soon as possible. We recommend booking about 1 month in advance, as classes do sell out.

Come meet like-minded new people or bring along a friend to share your experience! These classes are designed for people of all cooking levels. You'll learn how to care for your health, and prepare delicious food for those you love. We will give you the knowledge and skills to be a confident cook!

At the end of class you will sit down together and enjoy the meal we prepared. After each class you'll take home a thoughtfully prepared packet of original recipes as well as the skills to show off your own delicious culinary creations!

All cancellations purchased via credit card are subject to a processing fee of $12 per class. Weekend classes (Saturday) must be cancelled by the Tuesday before class by 6pm for a future class credit or refund.
