Learn More at Fustini's School of Cooking

The School of Cooking, located in our stores in Ann Arbor, Holland, Petoskey and Traverse City, teaches everything from the basics to the most advanced cooking skills, appropriately targeted to anyone interested in making the most out of cooking with oils and vinegars. With regularly scheduled classes from 30 minutes to two hours in a variety of subjects, you may want to come again and again.

Interactive, small-group teaching ensures you'll get the most out of your time and because our classes are about doing as much as watching, your taste buds will be rewarded too. Learn to mix and match for fantastic flavor pairings according to your own preferences. Practice some classic and also creative applications for vegetables, salads, soups and meats. Every level of cook can master dressings, emulsifications, marinades, sauces, sautes, reductions, caramelizing and deglazing or maybe even just learn the differences.

As the seasons change, new class offerings will follow fresh ingredients and new reasons to cook and entertain. The Fustini's School of Cooking is designed to be dynamic and evolving, so there will always be something different to check out. And for groups of eight or more, be sure to ask about how to customize classes for special interests or private sessions.
