At HEAT Culinary, we strive to create an environment that is both educational and entertaining, and we welcome everyone from the experienced home cook to those who have never boiled water! Every class begins with a short introduction to key kitchen equipment, knife techniques, etc - and then we dive right in to the recipes and get cooking.
Located in the heart of Carpinteria, Santa Barbara County & Costa Mesa, Orange County the HEAT Culinary kitchens are outfitted with state of the art cooking equipment and a pantry stocked with the best ingredients for preparing a delicious meal. Classes are typically capped at 8-12 students, to ensure that each individual gets an immersive, hands-on experience. Come hungry, because after all your hard work in the kitchen we will enjoy a family style dinner together!
