Let's Cook Alaska's cooking classes cater to a wide range of ages and skill levels. The adult cooking class is geared toward all grownups, regardless of skill level. The two-hour stand-alone class covers essential techniques and otherwise confusing kitchen terminology, such as the difference between a dash and a pinch, or between left- and right-handed bacon stretchers. After learning the basics, participants will have the opportunity to prepare an entire meal on their own. With only 4–10 participants in each class, there will be plenty of individual attention to ensure complete culinary confidence.
In the Mom (or Dad) and Me class, children 8–12 and their parents will learn the fundamentals of food preparation, as well as a variety of favorite kids' meals. See each month's class schedule online.
In the adult cooking classes, wine or other alcohol may be used in cooking instruction, so participants must be 21 or older to participate in these classes.

Let's Cook Alaska's talented teaching chef, Josie McKinney, fell in love with cooking at a young age. By the age of 12, she was preparing Thanksgiving dinner for her family. Now, as a mother of four, she shares her joy of cooking by inviting students into her “dream kitchen,” where they develop culinary confidence by working with her recipe box full of diverse meal ideas. In her cooking classes, she aims to transform cooking from chore to adventure. Josie’s fun, hands-on teaching style encourages students to get their hands messy by trying techniques for themselves and clean by stuffing them into their friends’ mouths. While students prepare entire meals, Josie circulates among them dispensing tips. Classes stay small—around 4 to 10 students—to ensure lots of individual attention and extra servings to go around when the class sits down together to enjoy their creations. Menus rotate with a monthly theme, such as comfort food and international fare, prepped with fresh, local ingredients.
