Cooking schools and classes

This list of cooking schools and classes in the Madison area is a work in progress. If you have suggestions for additions or corrections please send us an e-mail at

Please note: We’ve tried to include links that go directly to pages about cooking schools and classes, but as we discovered when we researched this list, these links sometimes good bad faster than you can say “lemon meringue pie” because webmasters change them as new classes are announced or seasons change. If you encounter a broken link, please let us know so we can update it.
