Come learn all kinds of Culinary Recipes, Techniques & More!

Originated in 2016, Foodies' has been the home to over 30 chefs and 300 amazing classes. Our classes were discontinued during the pandemic so during that time, we offered prepped meal kits, cookie decorating boxes, and many more DIY kits throughout the year. The demand and support to reopen our school was quite overwhelming, so we've put a lot of thought and planning into our new format, all while remaining aware of the health concerns around us. We are happy to be back and hope you join us for our new Foodies' adventures!
*All our classes run about 2-2 1/2 hours depending on cooking times, unless stated otherwise.*

*Spread the love and join us for a "working lunch" in honor of Lasagna Love*
