Class Formats

Culinaria Cooking School specializes in two cooking class formats – Demonstration and Participation.

Demonstration 

ClassFormats_DemoStudents sit back and enjoy watching one of our chefs prepare a multi-course meal. Wine is served to you and your party during the class. The chef will prepare each course for you to savor and enjoy, as he or she explains the ingredients and techniques used.

Upon your arrival, Culinaria provides recipes to our students, and throughout the class encourage you to ask questions and interact with the chef to gain an increased knowledge of professional culinary techniques and practices. Demonstration classes are ideal date nights, special birthday celebrations, and unique evenings out.

Participation
ClassFormats_ParticipationThis class format is a hands-on experience. You will be provided with an initial demonstration of the menu, along with step-by step instructions from your chef. He or she will move throughout the classroom, providing advice and helping with techniques to guide you through a self-prepared, professional, multi-course meal. In general, wine will be served with the meal.

If you are a novice just starting out in the kitchen, or an experienced home cook who would like to hone the skills you already have, Culinaria is just what you’ve been looking for in the greater-Washington DC metro area. The options are many, the menus diverse, and the fun is endless. Students test their skills and experience and take away a unique understanding and appreciation for professional culinary techniques. Participation classes are great for networking, double dates, couples, and an entertaining evening out.

Participation/Demonstration (Part/Demo)
Many of our classes are taught in this format where the chef or instructor will prepare some of the items while the students prepare others.
