Cooking Classes

Expand your culinary skills and enjoy a meal with friends by scheduling a registered dietitian to come to your residence hall or meeting space to lead a cooking class for a group.

Registered dietitians at The Rec are available to teach cooking classes on a variety of topics, including global cuisine, how to eat balanced vegetarian diets, breakfast on the go, or energy-boosting snacks. Topics are only limited by your imagination!

Classes can take place in The Rec’s teaching kitchen, or the instructor can come to you.

Equipment and kitchen tools are supplied by The Rec, but ingredients must be purchased and supplied by the group. Planning for your topic, supplies, and ingredients is done in partnership with one of The Rec’s registered dietitians who will walk you through the steps of this process.
