Your children are not numbers to us! Unlike other programs who just want your money, our focus is to cater to each child individually, help them where they need improvement and cap our class numbers to keep the class intimate, so your child does not get lost in the masses and feels like they are truly a part of the whole.

We offer a variety of cooking classes and events with a wide array of themes throughout the year. We are currently teaching classes in San Francisco and Tiburon.

Cooking Camps
Our hands-on cooking camps will enable kids to find their inner chef. The Culinary Dude has created a wonderful collection of daily menus that the kids will cook themselves. Using the fresh ingredients, fun and interactive cooking techniques, the kids will prepare meals from scratch each day as they learn kitchen and food safety, professional kitchen etiquette, measuring ratios, prep skills, and table manners. In addition to a wide variety of tactile recipes, kids will participate in additional food-related activities. All camps include lunch for all campers.

Dinner in a Blindfold
Loosely based on the successful European concept of eating a complete meal in total darkness, The Culinary Dude has substituted the darkness for a simple blindfold. This experience will challenge your senses, taking your nose and taste buds to places that they have never been, not to mention your mind. You will be offered a four course meal, which will be revealed at the end of this once in a lifetime experience. In addition, we are able to cater the meal to meet any special dietary needs as long as we have advanced notice. Finally, if during the meal you have any questions, may have to use the rest room or have any difficulties, just simply raise your hand and one of our escorts will be there to accommodate whatever is needed.
