about us

“Food is a catalyst for friendship… we promote that philosophy with intimate classes and a low key atmosphere”

The mission is to provide excellent instruction in all our educational programs in a warm and fun environment that offers students unlimited opportunities to practice their skills with professionals. Our approach is competency-based and fun feeling; we employ first-rate instructors from around the area, select from the best materials and methods available, and make use of innovative technology where appropriate. We are dedicated to the premise that without real competency in education there can be little true understanding, and, that to be truly effective, education must provide meaningful insight and access into other growths.

“The Three E’s: Educate, Entertain and Excite” We want our students to learn new skills, to have fun in the process and to go home excited about cooking!”

Our teachers are the best of the best! They possess exceptional knowledge, teaching skills, communication skills, and social skills. They have character, integrity, and amazing attitudes.  There are no proud or stuffy teachers here.  All are strong leaders who are patient and flexible.

All our teachers are experienced, college-educated, some are credentialed with the state of North Carolina.  They have prior experience in teaching and tutoring.  In fact, they are accepted with us because of their experience, and many come to us from other countries. Moreover, our teachers reflect a strong level of professionalism and follow a professional dress code.

"The 3 C’s of teaching: character, competence, and connection – character, meaning that they have integrity; competence, meaning that they have the necessary knowledge; and connection, meaning that they can relate to any student."
