Learn, Taste, and Experience the culinary arts with professional chefs.

For a year that has started out so great and moving at a fast pace with great projections,  came to a halt on March 13th. ( our last class)  We made it half way through March and the rest is what we all know.  Terms like  Virus, Corna- virus, Social Distancing, daily briefings from President, TV and Movie Binge watching, homes that have turned into classrooms and stay in place orders have consumed our lives for the last couple of months.

We are planning for opening on May 11 th but most likely we will shoot for a small plate class on June 5th.  See class schedule by clicking on classes above.

All our International Culinary Tours are cancelled for the year. We are working on some local and regional trips to the Low Country of SC and Savannah Ga and would like to visit another culinary school in Greenville, SC.   Our Italy Trips will be rescheduled for 2021..


Please remember to support your local restaurants and businesses with take-out and grab and go. We have a service for electronic gift certificates.  Simply click on the button and fill in the info.  You can print and give as a gift or send to your love ones by e-mail.  Let's Cook will help keep you entertained by posting classes two months in advance.  If you have an idea for a class, please don't hesitate to contact us.
