During both classes, up to 20 students learn the ins and outs of their respective culinary creation before getting their arms elbow-deep in flour in Classic Cooking Academy's commercial kitchen. After gleaning a total understanding of pizza dough and sauces, students pair their pizzas with a salad or appetizer and an italian dessert for a post-class feast. The theme for the pastry class varies by session, and menus include four to six baked goods, such as scones, caramelized-pear shortcakes, and parmesan pine-nut biscuits. Pastry students take home all of the delicacies they create. Pizza classes take place from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays; pastry classes take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. See the full schedule.
Opened in 2007, Classic Cooking marches under the banner of classic French cooking techniques while using indigenous ingredients and dietary foundations. Classically trained French chef and owner Pascal Dionot draws on his extensive training in France, Germany, and Spain to elucidate the finer points of cooking, dining, and fingertip kissing during cooking classes tailored for both career-minded gastronomers and novices. Catering services take Classic Cooking's French–Native American fusion on the road to feed handfuls of hungry partygoers or infinite imaginary friends.
Everything was very tidy, clean, and organized. It was very welcoming! Also, the appliances and cooking utensils were very nice.Lauren C., Yelp, 8/12/12
