L’Academie de Cuisine can help you be the best host for your next exciting event. We offer several event formats at our Bethesda locations: Our culinary team building programs are some of the most popular and effective employee bonding experiences available today. We offer several corporate-friendly foodie events. The menu includes classes, challenges, and fully customized unique dining experiences. Each is designed to nourish minds and hearts as well as bodies enjoy a demonstration format, watching your chef prepare a multi-course meal for you and your guests, or participate with your chef and experience your own “hands-on” class.

Cook, Eat, Drink. Prepare a gourmet meal watching the chef and completing yourself.
