Cooking Classes | Feast Cooking School

Feast offers cooking classes for both the novice as well as the seasoned cook. Groups come together, cook together alongside our professional chefs and then eat together. We work to meld the best recipes and techniques with an easygoing approach. Our goal is to make your time in the kitchen both enjoyable and memorable. Our events are interactive, community building, and most importantly, fun!

Participation

Feast Cooking School’s hands-on cooking classes are specifically designed to let everyone participate in creating sumptuous, innovative cuisine.
Our demonstration style classes are more relaxed. You sit back and enjoy an interactive experince while the chef cooks through an entire menu. 
Our aim is to help you learn the right way to hold a knife, poach, caramelize, whip, grill, and sauté. You can expect to enjoy an evening of learning, cooking, eating and laughter.

Where?

Feast Cooking School operates in the Feast Gourmet Kitchen Shop. We are Fenton Michigan's only kitchen store-cooking school combination. We can accommodate up to 10 people for our demonstration style classes. For hands-on classes we limit the attendance to 8 people to ensure everyone has room to work.

​Whether you want a totally hands-on class where you dive right in to the recipes or if you'd rather sit back and enjoy the show, Feast can make your night a success.

The Menu

We aim to be creative and accessible in all of our class themes. Our innovative menus are designed to introduce guests to new techniques and seasonal, fresh foods. All menus are well planned to inspire our guests to return home with the recipes feel confident in cooking them again. 

The majority of our classes last about three hours and begin with socializing and a brief overview of the menu. The cooking, which is very interactive and fun, lasts about two to two and a half hours. After that, the guests’ enjoy a sampling of the dishes that were just freshly created. 

Class Formats

Demonstration Style Classes

​IN A DEMONSTRATION STYLE CLASS
​What to Expect:
The chef will cook through each recipe offered in the class description. Most recipes feed 4-6 people. You can expect to have a sample portion of each dish as it is completed. In most cases you will get your fill of food, but you should not expect to receive a full meal in this demonstration style class. 

What to Bring: 
Feel free to bring along your favorite wine, beer or soft drink. The chef will be more than happy to help you with glassware. You can expect water and/or iced tea as a common offering for anyone who is thirsty. 

Where do I Sit? 
Seating is first come first serve. The kitchen space will be set up with stools along the counter. If there is a large enrollment you may be asked to shift one way or another to accommodate participants that want to sit as a group. It's the neighborly thing to do after all. Come early for a good seat. 

Hands-On Style Classes

IN A HANDS-ON STYLE CLASS

Kids In The Kitchen Classes

IN A KIDS CLASS
What to Expect:
The chef will have the kitchen all set up for your young chef to enjoy a great class. We normally format the kids in the kitchen class to be a hands-on experience and try to tackle 3-4 recipes. Classes generally take 2 to 2 1/2 hours long and you are more than welcome to either stay and watch or leave and come back when class is done. Feast Kids In The Kitchen classes are generally appropriate for 8-12 year olds. Anyone 13+ will normally feel comfortable in any of our other classes. 

What to Bring: 
Feel free to bring along your favorite wine, beer or soft drink. The chef will be more than happy to help you with glassware. You can expect water and/or iced tea as a common offering for anyone who is thirsty. 

Where do I Sit? 
Seating is first come first serve. Because the kids in the kitchen classes are normally hands-on the seating arrangements aren't that important. They will be up and active for most of the class while they cook. Parents can sit along the sidelines if they want.
