Feed your passion for all things food and wine at a single-day, hands-on class taught by CIA chef-instructors. No matter your skill level or interests, we have a class that is perfect for you!

Our campuses—New York, California, and Texas—are all located in the heart of vibrant culinary regions, and offer you unique, locally-inspired, and unforgettable experiences. We offer a variety of different courses in cooking, baking, and wine and beverage ranging from three-five hours in length.

During your cooking or baking class, you’ll roll up your sleeves and jump right into learning techniques and recipes with a chef-instructor by your side. You’ll work with your fellow classmates to prepare a menu. Class sizes are kept small for a more intimate learning experience.

After all your cooking is done for the day, you’ll sit down with your fellow classmates to enjoy the food you’ve cooked and discuss the various techniques and recipes used that day. You’ll also get a full recipe packet to take home and continue perfecting each dish!
