Cooking classes offer the opportunity to learn something new? Maybe with someone you love- your spouse or your kiddos. The best part – you don’t have to clean up the mess! Here are a selection of our favorite places for coming together to learn.
Cooking Classes: Atlanta
The Cook’s Warehouse is Atlanta’s premier cooking school with three locations: Midtown, Decatur and East Cobb. All classes include menu recipes, samples of the food prepared and complimentary beverages. All students receive a 10% discount off of in store purchases (excluding alcohol) before and after class on the day of the class.
February brings chocolate classes, couples classes and hands-on brunch creations. Try pasta, wines or ethnic flavors in March…every month is filled with tempting treasures and lots of fun. Kid’s classes also available for children as young as 6 years old.
The Local Three team is hosting one cooking workshop each month, and their chefs will share their knowledge and skills with you. Coming up this year: Chef Hall will teach you about designing menus and take you shopping at a market, Chef Ben will dive into Home Butchery 101, Chef Gary will show you how to make irresistible pastries, and we’ve got so much more planned!

Every month they offer a range of cooking classes, tastings and workshops.
Enjoy soups, pastas, couples classes and more. I’m dying to take the knife skills class. This boutique cooking school is in O4W, diagonal to Krog Street Market. The owners love to show ho much fun cooking can be, even if you hate it. While classes on the main calendar are not suitable for children, they often offer kiddo classes, so be on the lookout.
Located in Phipps Plaza or Northpoint Mall, you probably know Sur la Table for their gourmet cooking store. They also offer classes daily (sometimes multiple classes each day.) Try a date night culinary escape to Tuscany or Greece, or try your hand at sushi, pizza or fabulous French cuisine. Teen classes available, as well as kiddo and family cooking classes.

For winter, try hearty suppers, Southern Brunch for Couples, “I’ve never heard of that!” wine classes and more. Whole Foods, Alpharetta location.
Preserving Place is Atlanta’s newest home for cooking classes, specialty cooking supplies and house-produced preserved food. Try canning, kombucha or quick breads. There are cocktail classes, superfood sensations and family meal cuisines. I’m always motivated by just reading the class list here!
Pizza on the grill? Yes! Cold smoking, Game Day, seasonal treats and more are among the classes at the BGE culinary center in Atlanta.
Reconnect with forgotten heritage skills and explore innovative sustainable-living approaches. The Homestead offers an array of classes, but for chefs-in-training you’ll enjoy classes like how to make your own French baguette and jam from scratch, summer preserves, edible and medicinal herbs, and more.
