Three Types of Classes
Hands-on — In our Hands-On classes, our instructors will discuss each recipe with you, provide helpful tips and work alongside you and your group as you prepare each dish. Depending on the format of the class, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of your labor as each course is prepared or you may sit down at the end of the class to enjoy the entire feast.
Demo — Our Demonstration classes will give you an up close look at how recipes and ingredients are chosen, prepared and perfected by our chef/instructors. You will receive generous tastings of each dish as they are prepared in class.
Become Inspired — We often have the special opportunity to welcome one of the many talented chefs from our community to the demo kitchen at Frankie & May. These evenings are intimate and give you the perfect opportunity to get to know your favorite chef. Our unique setting often inspires the chefs to create something that isn't necessarily on their own menu. We think they enjoy being in our kitchen as much as we like having them here!
No matter the format of your class, we advise that you arrive hungry! Sampling is always plentiful. Additionally, you are welcome to bring wine to enjoy during class. In our hands-on classes, however, you will be asked to wait to enjoy your wine until the interactive part of the class is over.
