Our classes are more than just learning how to make something; they are a cultural enriching experience, a social experience and a culinary growing experience. We teach principles and techniques not recipes. We have deep respect for food. This is seen in the high quality ingredients we choose and how we help you to identify with these ingredients, how utilize them properly and how to present them beautifully to your family and friends. Many of our adult evening classes are paired with beautiful wines from our in-house sommelier that enhance the enjoyment of the dishes you prepare. Every day is different!

If you are in Redlands, CA for any reason you must absolutely visit the Cooking Block cooking school. We had such a fun time with friends we were visiting. They were very excited to take us there as they had attended many of the cooking classes offered before. We had not planned on doing an activity like this on our stay but are very glad that we did. We participated in a French cooking class that was paired with wines for each course. The instructor was very knowledgeable and an excellent chef. Not only were we treated to excellent food and wine, we actually learned a lot about the regions that they hailed from. We met the owner of this fine establishment. His name was John and he was very hand's on with the entire night. Probably one of the reasons it was such a great experience. He made us feel very welcome and was genuinely glad that we all came. It was very apparent why this business was so successful. Many of the other guests were return customers and could not say enough about how much fun these events were. This event was sold out. Thank you to our great friends and to Cooking Block for a most wonderful experience. Cheers and continued success and excellence!

Love Chef John and all the chefs working at the Cooking Block. They take the time to explain regions where foods originate along with keeping it fun! Have taken Pasta making, Elegant seafood, French series, pizza making, and several individual Italian region classes and have met new friends in each class. My grandson loved The kids Farm to Table series and now helps in kitchen and he is only 5. This place is like my other family and you can't beat the wines they serve!!

My husband and I have been to several classes including single classes and series. We also did the culinary skills course. It has always been a wonderful experience. The varied instructors keep it interesting. I would highly recommend to everyone.
