Cooking Can Be Easy, Fun, and Extraordinarily Rewarding!

Our summer cooking classes calendar is here!
We are Cooking Fresh and Eating Fresh! All summer long!

Since 1993, The Seasoned Chef Cooking School in Denver, Colorado has been providing home cooks with expertise and confidence in the kitchen. We offer cooking classes in proper fundamental techniques, creative seasonal and comfort foods, cuisines from around the world, and we have proudly accepted 5280 Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Award for Top Cooking School on multiple occasions.

What sets The Seasoned Chef apart is that our faculty of chefs teaches in a down-to-earth and approachable style. You’ll never feel intimidated in our classroom. Our fully-stocked kitchen is comfortable, inviting and easy to navigate. Classes are hands-on, unless otherwise noted, and enrollment is limited; encouraging lots of student-instructor interaction. We also have the largest selection of staff and guest instructors of all area cooking schools.

This season, we are concentrating on the best our region has to offer: the best new chefs, the freshest produce, the hottest markets and the latest trends. It’s time to take advantage of the summer’s bounty and it’s our job to make you comfortable, confident and empowered in the kitchen or at the grill.

In addition to our regular fare, we are placing special emphasis on fish and seafood. This is a vital part of our diet and a perennial favorite for summer entertaining; however it’s a product far too many people are intimidated by and find difficult to prepare properly. We are placing this staple firmly in the center of our plate by gathering some of the most expert chefs in the area to share their favorite tips, techniques and recipes for you to perfect at home.

Cooking Fresh starts with basic techniques, the foundation of our school, and in order to offer you more opportunities to benefit from our time-honored Basic Skills class, we are adding new week day times for your convenience in addition to our evening classes, and we are welcoming the Young Chef to 2- and 3- day culinary camps and workshops.

We are delighted to debut executive chefs from Table 6 and Humboldt; exciting additions to our Denver’s / Boulder’s Best Chefs Series and to welcome back many of our favorite restaurant chefs this season.

From our foundational techniques classes to regional and international fare, and everything in between, we have a diverse calendar of classes for you! Come cook with us!

Our expert instructors are committed to demonstrating valuable culinary skills that will build assurance to last for years to come. We show you that cooking may be an art but it is a learned art. This newfound knowledge will allow you to shop for ingredients and approach your meal planning in a completely different way, enabling you to save time and money and serve fresher, healthier meals to your family and friends.

Every class includes hearty tastings of all of the food prepared in class and the complete recipe packet including step-by-step instructions so you can recreate your favorite dishes at home. And you’ll also have the opportunity to establish a new network of friends who are just as excited as you are to be learning invaluable cooking techniques and varieties of flavors and cuisines.

Come join the party!
