Cooking School

Whether you are an experienced chef or someone who yearns to be a great cook, The Willows Cooking School can help you gain masterful culinary skills. Located in the charming Carriage House at The Willows Bed and Breakfast, the cooking classes accommodate up to sixteen persons. The large, airy country kitchen adjacent to the herb, vegetable and fruit gardens on the estate make a perfect setting for relaxed instruction indoors and on the patio. The estate garden’s bounty is often used in the recipes we prepare at the school. Following each class, participants feast together on the food prepared. When weather permits the class can adjourn to the rose garden patio and partake of their labors under ancient willows.

Most of the instructors at The Willows Cooking School are members of the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP). These talented instructors include local and national cookbook authors, restaurant chefs from near and far, and other cooking experts. Each participant receives a complete set of recipes prepared during the class. The Willows Cooking School schedule of classes is updated monthly. Note: special request or group classes can be arranged upon request.

Registration for classes is done online or by fax, mail or phone, and must be paid, in full, at the time of registration. Checks and credit cards are accepted for payment. Registration forms are required before attending classes, so please visit our registration page.
