HGS Home Chef

HGS Home Chef is a modern kitchenware store offering cooking classes in the heart of the historic hamlet of Hillsdale, Columbia County, NY.  We sell high-quality cookware and gadgets for the home chef and have the best selection of cookbooks in the region.


At HGS Home Chef (HGS referring to Hillsdale General Store, our founding business across the street) we have two beautiful teaching kitchens. Within these inviting rooms, nationally renowned cookbook authors and local chefs present instruction and demonstrations on preparing delicious food, simple to sublime.


HGS Home Chef is contained within a historic 1870's Victorian house that has been completely and lovingly restored to its original charm, filled with brightness, color and light. Our teaching kitchen on the first floor is dedicated to hands-on classes and demonstrations. Our fully-equipped kitchen upstairs has an adjoining dining room making it ideal for private classes or special occasions to be shared with your family and friends.



Cancellation policy: We do not offer refunds on purchased tickets.  Persons who notify us at least seven (7) days in advance that they cannot attend will receive credit and may register for another class of equal value held within the subsequent two months.
