For kids’ classes, children ages 12 and under should be checked in and out by an adult. Please plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before class begins to complete the process, and pick up your children promptly as class ends. Unless specified in the class description, adults are not allowed in the room while class is in session.
Hands-on, basics, and kids’ classes are designated. All other classes are demonstration. All class participants receive a recipe packet and sample the food.
Most evening classes include wine pairings. Please limit your consumption to items served in class.
Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Late arrivals will be seated in available spaces.
To avoid being charged the full price of the class, cancellations must be made at least four days before the day of the class.
Menus are subject to change because of the availability of seasonal ingredients.
Students should be dressed with safety and comfort in mind. Please wear closed-toe shoes and shirts with fitted sleeves, and remove any jewelry. Long hair should be pulled back.
We do our best to accommodate dietary restrictions. Please contact your cooking school to confirm if the curriculum can be revised to your diet.
Cooking classes make excellent gifts for anyone who’s really into food, or who wants to be. If you’ve got someone like that in your life, make their day with a Central Market gift card. Your friends, family, or colleagues will be able to choose classes that fit their interest – and their schedule – and you’ll get a great, big thank you. We even have holiday-themed gift card holders; just stop by the Info Desk to pick them up.
We know some gifts are meant to be a surprise, so keep this in mind: If you purchase a class online as a gift, upon completing your purchase, the email address you list on the registration form will receive the confirmation email, as well as any other correspondence related to the class.
Unless otherwise noted, class participants must be 18 or older. Participants in beer or wine tasting classes must be 21 years or older.
