Where Good Cooking Becomes Great Cooking.

It just makes sense. When one of America’s top 10 professional culinary schools opens a recreational cooking school for home chefs, the instructors are going to be superb, the classes are going to be engaging and the end-result is going to be people cooking better tasting, healthier, more inventive meals for friends and family.

L’Academie de Cuisine’s recreational cooking school in Bethesda, MD is where singles, couples and even families come to explore and creatively expand their kitchen and cooking skills in a friendly, relaxed environment, where you can meet, mingle, sample, experiment and … ENJOY!


"I really believe the best schooling comes from small regional establishments like our very own and much-admired L’Academie de Cuisine." - Tom Sietsema, Restaurant Critic, The Washington Post
