Recreational Classes

Calling all home cooks, culinary enthusiasts, and everyone else who loves food and cooking…Engage your passion through CKCA’s recreational cooking class program.

Our hands-on classes are taught by professionally trained chefs and offer the perfect opportunity for you to explore your culinary curiosity.

We offer single-session and short series in all different subjects related to cooking, baking, cake decoration, fruit & vegetable garnishing, and more. These classes are a perfect fit for those interested in learning professional level skills and techniques but who don’t have the time to commit to one of our professional training programs.

Our classes are open to men and women ages 12 and up. We also periodically offer classes specifically for children and teens. Classes are offered days, nights, weekends, and motzei shabbos in the winter.

Couples will love our Date Night series, which we now offer year-round.

Recreational cooking classes make great gifts! Click here to find out how to order a gift certificate.

The schedule changes every season and we are constantly adding new classes but if there’s something that you’re interested in learning about that we don’t currently offer, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate you in the future.
