Chef Paul, a former student of Wolfgang Puck, leads classes in which students learn to craft deep-dish and thin-crust favorites through a mix of demonstration and hands-on learning. After watching Chef Paul mold the crust of a deep-dish pizza, students create california thin-crust varieties at their own prep stations. See the schedule here.

Cooking Skills Academy

Cooking Skills Academy's four resident chefs oversee hands-on cooking classes in a custom-designed gourmet kitchen. During the Quick and Easy, One Pot Wonders class, students learn to prepare four healthy, flavorful meals in 20–30 minutes each and hone an arsenal of cooking techniques more efficient than trying to convince raw asparagus to walk across hot coals. In the It's All About the Stove Top course, chefs-to-be practice culinary arts such as braising, knife handling, sautéing, and caramelizing to craft a menu of applejack pork, southwestern rice, and lemon-blueberry bread pudding. Like sculptors constructing busts of Martin Luther from limburger cheese, amateur food artists can snack on their masterpieces as they go, and take home a copy of each recipe used in the session. Check Cooking Skills Academy’s online calendar for a full list of class times and dates for such sessions as hands-on pasta making, Knife Skills 101, and Date Night Sushi 101.
