“It’s not always the recipes you are learning,
it’s the little things in how you get there along the way that will make you a better cook.”


Cook What’s In Season

That is the best approach for maximum flavor, the freshest produce, and the most soul satisfying meal. As a mother or just a busy person trying to get food on the table, it’s not always that easy, so here at Culinary Works Seasonal Classes my goal is to help you navigate through that process so that we can all learn together.

What People Are Saying

Everybody had a fantastic time! Its such a different type of corporate event that fuses team building, collaboration, communication, and great food/wine in a very comfortable and casual setting. Nothing but 5 stars from our team!

What a fun evening!  I wasn't even home yet and I was getting texts about what a special night it was.  There was a lot of great chemistry and Julia, you really know how to whip a group into shape! And, the food was amazing.  I am still thinking about that risotto and the berry cobbler! My dream of being at one of your cooking events came true, LOL. I know that everyone enjoyed the evening and your staff was wonderful.

- Roberta M.

Thank you so much! Everyone really had a blast and we’ve gotten amazing feedback from the participants. It was also really wonderful that everyone with an allergy was able to fully participate and eat all of the courses. We can’t wait to host another event with you!!!

- Lauren H.

I just want to say how grateful I am to you, James and Francisco for such an amazing event for our students and caregivers. They had such an AMAZING time, and are still talking about it to this day. We couldn't offer programming such as these without amazing partners like you, so thank you!

- Nehemie Y.
