Camaje Cooking Classes are unique. They are taught in a working restaurant kitchen by a professional chef. Class starts in the Camaje dining room, where you meet the chef and your classmates to discuss the menu and how to prepare it. Then you don aprons and, under the chef’s watchful eye and with her help, if needed, you prepare your ingredients. Prep finished, it's time to move to the kitchen to cook. (Remember: You are in a working restaurant kitchen—if there’s a rush,stand back! Students tell us they find this exciting and instructive.) When you have finished cooking, it’s time to gather around your table in the dining room for wine and tasty food cooked by you. Relax with the chef and chat with your classmates. Bon apetit!
