Whether you’re a kitchen newbie, an entertainer extraordinaire looking to expand your repertoire or just seeking a new spin on classic recipes, our cooking classes are a fun way to learn and taste something new. When you cook with the Y, you are supporting the Y’s mission in our community. The Y will facilitate cooking classes for families, seniors, teens, adults and youth.  We work with the local Y Farmer’s Market to promote the use of fresh produce and community supported agriculture.  The Y Teaching Kitchen’s culinary programs empower individuals and families with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to make healthy, affordable meals, supporting healthier eating habits in our community.
