Become a Home Chef: 3 Cooking Classes near Cranberry

Are you looking to improve your skills for creating hearty meals or delectable desserts? Check out these three recreational cooking schools near our Cranberry, PA apartments where you'll learn to make recipes that will surely delight your family and friends:


Crate: Kitchenware is western Pennsylvania's premier cooking school. Located in nearby Pittsburgh, it offers both demonstration and hands-on cooking classes. The school opened in 1978 and offers over 200 sessions every year. The kitchen is state-of-the-art, and everyone from novice cooks to seasoned home chefs is welcome.

The schedule rotates through several classes, including their most popular class, The Art of Fresh Pasta. Chef Domenica Merante walks students through the dough making while sharing tips and tricks for easy home preparation. The menu includes fettuccine with a five-minute marinara sauce and black pepper farfalle with a creamy porcini mushroom sauce.


At Cozymeal, students learn from some of the best chefs in town. Some have worked as private chefs, while others cooked in Michelin-starred restaurants. Today, they help home cooks make everything from Spanish paella to decadent chocolate desserts.

Classes are offered throughout the week and include themes like "A Vegan Feast". During this hands-on session, the chef changes the way people think about vegan food. Students will prepare spicy mango and ginger soup, white chocolate macadamia nut cheesecake, and more.


Chop, Wok & Talk is the area's only hands-on ethnic cooking school. Instructor Dorothy Tague graduated from the Pennsylvania Institute of Culinary Arts and studied in countries such as France, Italy, and Thailand.

Try the class called "Tapas of Madrid". Chef Tague leads students in making manchego croquettes with quince sauce, steamed mussels, and grilled shrimp in a romesco sauce.
