Learning to Cook

Welcome to A la Carte Culinary Services where you can customize a cooking class for your students!  A cooking class at A la Carte reinforces what you are teaching and is a great way to emphasize what is being presented in the classroom!

We can customize a menu to suit any country or region you might be studying.

Prices vary according to class size.  The minimum number of students for a class is 15 and the maximum number is 30.  For a group of 15 to 19, the price is $42.00 per person, a group of 20 to 25 is $39.00 per person and a group of 26 to 30 is $37.00 per person.  2 chaperones are included; additional adults count as additional students.

The class is a 2-hour hands-on experience where the students are actually making the meal.  After the meal is prepared, the class will be able to enjoy the fruits of their labor and eat their meal in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. Ask us for alternate menus if your class has been here before.
