Whether you’re a novice in the kitchen or an experienced home cook, our cooking classes are a unique and interactive way to learn new techniques, discover diverse flavors, and create delicious meals.

Here are three exciting cooking class events that we offer in-person at our Salt Lake City location!

Date Night Cooking Classes in Salt Lake City Utah

If you’re looking for a fun date night activity that combines quality time and delicious food, check out our date night cooking classes in Salt Lake!

Each class lasts about 3 hours, which includes time for preparing the night’s cuisine through demonstrations from our professional chefs, cooking the meal, and sitting down to a beautifully set table at the end of the evening to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Everything you need to prepare the night’s dish is provided, including pre-measured ingredients and all the necessary cooking equipment. All you need to do is register for the class, show up and make some wonderful memories!

One common question we hear a lot is if you need cooking experience to participate in our culinary classes. No matter which class you attend (including our couples cooking classes) all skill levels are welcome. From beginners to experienced home chefs, we promise you’ll have a great time, prepare and enjoy some delicious food, and gain the confidence to make that same dish on a future date!

International Cooking Classes In Salt Lake City Utah

Remember when Charles Barkley called Salt Lake City “boring”? Yes, he eventually got a lot of pushback on that statement through billboards and social media posts, but one thing that we absolutely love about Utah is the diversity of flavors and cuisines you’ll find at restaurants across the state.

That’s why we’re thrilled to take you on a culinary journey with our international cooking classes in Salt Lake!

If you’ve ever had a tantalizing plate of butter chicken and saffron scented rice pilaf, or delicious beef drunken noodles and mango sticky rice, you’ll learn exactly how to master the authentic techniques to make those dishes at home anytime you want.

“Had a wonderful time taking an Indian nights cooking class. Even though I went alone, I felt comfortable in the group I was working with and had a lot of fun in the class. Our instructor was amazing and the food was delicious! I’d definitely recommend it.”
– Cheri

Some of our most popular international classes include Korean and Thai food, authentic Indian dishes and Mediterranean cuisine like Greek and Italian.

Each class has a regional theme, and the dishes and ingredients used to create the cuisine are unique to the region. Plus you’ll get to enjoy the dish you created after the class.

Basic Knife Skills Classes in Salt Lake City Utah

One of the secrets to navigating your way around a kitchen is to become confident and efficient with a knife.

This basic knife skills class in Salt Lake is perfect for any skill level (no matter if you’re a beginner, or a professional chef).

A chef’s knife is the most important tool in the kitchen, and learning how to use the knife properly will make it easier for you to create amazing meals. We’ll show you how to choose the best knife for a particular task, how to hold the knife properly, and you’ll learn a variety of cutting techniques like julienne, dicing, and Chiffonade among others.

We’ll even provide a professional Chef’s knife that you can use during the class. If you have a knife of your own that you’d like to bring in, that’s not a problem!


“I took a knife skills class and it was fantastic! Very informative and so much fun! By the end of the class I could already see improvement in my knife skills. Chef Chris was highly knowledgeable & a great teacher. Highly recommend it!”
– Tori

Make sure to come in closed-toe, comfortable shoes, and register early because our knife skills classes sell out fast!

Well there you have it, if you’re looking for something fun and unique to try in the Salt Lake City area this year, check out all the fun cooking classes that Salt Lake Culinary Education offers each month. Be sure to keep an eye on our calendar to see if there’s a class you want to take part in!
