Everyone loves a home-cooked meal, and the time has come to learn how to cook.
At Create Cooking School we are passionate about taking the stress out of scratch cooking. Forget about the frozen section — we saved you a seat at the Chef’s table. Enjoy a glass of wine while you discover new recipes and techniques. Have a great night out with your friends, and learn a little something, too. That’s the Create promise.
Don’t Just Cook. Create.
Let’s get cooking
How do you cook an artichoke, anyway?
Whether you’re a home cooking hero, or a ramen noodle newbie, we want you to have a great time at Create. Whether it’s a date night with that special someone or a night out with friends, our chef-led cooking classes have something for everyone. You can also book our kitchen for team building, parties, and other celebrations.
Let Off Some Steam
Whether you’re looking for a date-night that’s sure to impress, or winding down from a long work week – at CREATE, we want you to play with your food. Our courses are designed to be educational, fun, and delicious.
(Class) Size Matters
Don’t get lost in the crowd. At CREATE, we think smaller is better. That’s why we limit our classes to 12 guests, ensuring you get the attention you need to cook a restaurant-quality meal – and have a great time, too.
Learn By Doing
It’s time to turn off the cooking channel. At CREATE, our chef’s put you in the driver’s seat for dinner. We don’t just tell you how to cook – we cook with you, giving you the confidence to show off at your next dinner party.
Frequently Asked Questions
The first time you cook with us, we do ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes early so that you can fill out our waiver. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have and show you around the kitchen if you like. You are also welcome to enjoy a drink at our full service bar while you wait for class to start. Please make sure to wear comfortable clothing and appropriate footwear. We suggest no open toe shoes, and something you won’t mind standing and walking in for a few hours.
Once class has started, you’ll put on your apron and find your cooking station. Our chefs will go over the menu for the night, including all ingredients and demonstrations for safely handling all of the required utensils.
After each course is prepared, you’ll plate your food and head back to the community dining area. Here you will have plenty of time to sit down and enjoy the food you have just prepared, along with a beverage and conversation.
We want everyone to feel relaxed and welcome, so if at any point you are unsure what to do or how to do it, just ask! Our chefs are there to guide you and demonstrate proper kitchen skills and safety.
At the end of the night, leave the cleanup to us. Our chefs will be around to answer your questions, and you are welcome to stay to chat or enjoy the bar area. We’ll also send you an e-mail with recipes for everything you cooked that day.
Absolutely! We have a full service bar with plenty of sitting both inside the school and on the perimeter inside the Stanley Marketplace. You and your friends are totally welcome to stop in during normal business hours and hang out, while watching a class and taking in some free smells. The only exception is during our private events, so just make sure to check our calendar or call ahead of time.
Our chefs have lots of experience tailoring cuisines to fit all varieties of food allergies and dietary restrictions. We will absolutely make our best effort to work with you and your guests to ensure the menu has options for everyone. Due to the broad nature of our cuisines, however, it might not be possible to adjust every menu we offer. We do ask that you contact us ahead of time before booking so we can discuss your needs, and then also make a note at the time of your booking so we’ll be prepared when you arrive.
Yes! We believe introducing kids to the joys of cooking at an early age is a great way to teach proper kitchen safety and expose them to a wide variety of cuisines. To that end, we currently have two flavors of kids cooking classes.
First, our Cooking with Your Kids Classes are designed to be a single day cooking class for both you and your child. You’ll work together to prepare your meal, learning a variety of techniques along the way. These classes are offered throughout the year, typically on weekends to accommodate busy family schedules.
Second, our Junior Chef Camps and Classes are designed to be a more in depth cooking experience for your child. These are multiple day drop-ff camps with just child participation, and are typically only offered during longer school breaks.
Of course! We think our cooking school is the perfect place for special events such as birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, team building, bachelor/bachelorette parties, and any other occasion worth remembering. Please contact us to inquire about availability and pricing.

What People Are Saying
He gave us the confidence to take more risks in our kitchen and try things that we were previously intimidated by. This was a special night for us and we can’t wait for the next experience with Chef Ras. By far one of the best experiences for the dollar spent.
Diego has a great sense of humor and a lot of patience. Everyone in the room learns something, from proper knife skills for the beginner to technique and time saving tricks for experienced cooks. I encourage you to take a class with him; you will learn something and have lots of fun in the process.
Thanks for a wonderful way to start the day guys. The food was so friggin delicious (and loved my mimosas). Can't wait to come back!!
We learned how to make risotto and homemade gnocchi which both turned out wonderful. The chefs were great as well and I actually learned quite a lot! We will definitely be coming back and look forward to seeing what other classes they offer! Definitely recommend.
Wonderful chefs... so informative and personable! I plan on making cooking classes a regular date night in the future. So fun!
Chef Ras and Chef Diego have created a unique cooking experience where we were able to learn new skills, ‘create’ an incredible meal from different countries, and guided us through a step-by-step process while allowing us to have fun with friends at the same time.
We learned some new tips and skills, learned how to make homemade pasta and had a blast. All of the food was delicious and best of all was that they cleaned the kitchen afterwards!
A great experience! They taught our entire family to make one of the best steaks I have ever had!
Such amazing people and an awesome experience!!
I had a great evening at the French Bistro cooking class last night. Ras was so friendly and informative. Food was delicious!!
