Chef du Jour

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a few hours to spend with a culinary expert? Wait no more! Register today for one of our Chef du Jour classes to sample new cuisines or to learn new and fun ways to prepare the foods that you've always enjoyed!

Due to the coronavirus, McCutchen House is closed until further notice.

 

These are not your typical cooking "demonstrations."

In many similar classes, you sit back and watch a chef do all of the cooking as he or she demonstrates a variety of cooking techniques. Our classes are not for onlookers, but rather for those of you who are ready to get your hands (and clothes) a little messy. You will actually be doing the cooking, learning three to five new recipes in the process. So come to class dressed comfortably and be ready for some fun!

Offered approximately once a month, Chef du Jour classes take place in the new J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation Culinary Laboratory at our new location, Close-Hipp building, 1705 College St., from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays (unless otherwise specified). Seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Classes fill quickly so make your reservations early.
