Classes for Adults


Food plays a key role in the art of living. In the hustle and bustle of daily life, food has the power to entertain, calm, and heal. Since we are what we eat, we strive to make all our culinary arts classes not only a recreation, but also an education. Whether you are a novice cook or an experienced foodie, we’ll cook something up that’s just right for you.

The Michelle C. Feig Nutrition Program

The Michelle C. Feig Nutrition Program was created to serve as a resource to help sort through the myriad nutritional information and options out there. Nutrition experts offer educational and experiential opportunities for individuals and families to become more informed about their food choices through lectures, webinars, and healthy cooking classes in The Patti Gelman Culinary Arts Studio.
