Cooking Classes
We are a business focused on hands-on culinary education, fun, health, safety, nutrition and teamwork in and outside the kitchen. Our background in both culinary arts and education has lead us to having a superb track record and impressive list of clients which clearly speaks to our ability to engage students of all ages in the best cooking classes & camps in the Bay Area! The Culinary Dude's goal is simple and meaningful: Empower our students with the kitchen skills to become self-sufficient and make healthy choices for themselves, their families and their future.

We are a nut-free business and use sunflower seeds and SunButter as a nut replacement unless otherwise requested.

Your children are not numbers to us! Unlike other programs who just want your money, our focus is to cater to each child individually, help them where they need improvement and cap our class numbers to keep the class intimate, so your child does not get lost in the masses and feels like they are truly a part of the whole.

Cooking Camps
Our hands-on cooking camps will enable kids to find their inner chef. The Culinary Dude has created a wonderful collection of daily menus that the kids will cook themselves. Using the fresh ingredients, fun and interactive cooking techniques, the kids will prepare meals from scratch each day as they learn kitchen and food safety, professional kitchen etiquette, measuring ratios, prep skills, and table manners. In addition to a wide variety of tactile recipes, kids will participate in additional food-related activities. All camps include lunch for all campers.
