Our beautiful Viking kitchen hosts fun and enriching classes, private events, and team building experiences taught by professional chefs. We’re proud to be Westwood’s premier destination for food enthusiasts and those ready to hone their skills in the kitchen.

Classes are now available in-person and online. Follow along as your instructor guides through every step of the cooking or baking process while answering your questions along the way.
