The mission at Food Lab is to help enhance the level of culinary skills, food and wine knowledge to the community in an entertaining and informative way. Food Lab is strictly a place for those who love food, want to learn more about it and have fun while they’re at it—say by mastering a new dish while on a date with a glass of wine in hand. As a 2000+ square foot kitchen on Pearl Street, Food Lab welcomes all types of students from seasoned home chefs to new-to-cooking college kids. Even mini chefs, as young as age six, are invited inside. Hands-on classes are offered in a wide range from hog butchery to pickling and canning – there is something to delight the pickiest of palates. All classes end with a tasting and recipe to take home.
