This 10-week program is like pastry school for the home cook, covering some of the more intermediate pastry and baking techniques. The “Pastry Series for the Home Cook – Beginner” program is not a prerequisite, but suggested. Students will work hands-on, building their skills, and adding to their competencies week by week. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions we should be aware of before the first day of class so we can best accommodate your needs.
Students of all skill levels will be able to keep up in this class. Beginners will quickly gain new skills, and seasoned cooks will refine existing skills while also building new ones.
CulinaryLab® Cooking School is fully operational during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Learn more about our safety measures by clicking here.

We understand that “life happens”, and that you may not be able to make it to class. Because we purchase food, schedule staff, and fill spaces for our classes in advance, it’s important that you let us know ASAP if you won’t be able to make it. Below is our refund policy:
Cancellations more than 2 weeks in advance of the first class: Full refund
Cancellations 6 to 14 days in advance of the first class: Class credit
Cancellations 5 days or less: No refund or credit available, but you can send a friend in your place
Refunds will be processed within 15 days of refund request.
Make-up Classes for Series:
Once the first day of class begins, make-up classes may be available for students who miss a day provided that they inform the Student Relations Manager at least 5 days prior to the absence. In order to help our students make-up exactly what they missed in their series, students can sign up to take the topic they missed during another scheduled series. To keep class sizes small we limit the total student count to be 12 per class. There are no make-up classes offered for boot camps.
