Cooking Classes

Need some new inspiration in your cooking??
We WILL get you jazzed about cooking again, regardless of your experience.

Do you want to expand your cooking skills??
We WILL show you how easy it is to create great tasting meals.
Have fun exploring new topics and ingredients in your cooking!
We LOVE to use ingredients, techniques and foods from around the world.

Creating great food doesn't have to be a "chore"! You will learn chef secrets for making the ordinary into something extraordinary and all the while making cooking fun! We'll cover a wide range of topics from fish cookery to vegetarian cookery, including recipes and techniques to easily create new and exciting dishes to impress your friends and family.

"Really fun and very informative" ~ Jerry B.

These classes are topical and not beginner basics although beginners are certainly encouraged to take these classes. We have a good time in these classes so don't miss out. You'll meet some new people and laugh a lot!

  • Classes are Monday evening from 6 to 8:30pm
  • Cost is $55 paid in advance
  • 10% off items purchased at Thyme to Cook on class day (with exceptions)
  • Ask about special classes for groups up to eight.
  • Cancellation and refunds are subject to 24 hours notice.
  • Classes with less than 4 students will be cancelled and money will be returned.

Small classes of no more than 8 will prepare a fabulous menu while providing step-by-step direction for each dish. The relaxed style of our cooking school allows for some hands on preparation and lots of interaction. You will leave each class confident and totally prepared to make the same dish at home.

Recipe packages are provided for students to take home. Classes usually include an appetizer, soup or salad depending on the subject. All classes include several entrees and dessert, so bring an appetite. Wine and beverages are available for purchase.

Classes will be posted on our calendar as we post them. Classes run from October through May. Some topics are very popular so sign up early! Become a Facebook friend of Leslie's Tavern at Rockingham and get the "latest info", recipes from past classes, new recipes and topical information.

Remember...cooking classes make a great Father's Day, Mother's Day or Holiday gift!
