Welcome to the Gourmandise School

…where we teach how to create amazing meals and treats out of locally-sourced and sustainable ingredients… while having fun!

Consistently touted as one of the best cooking schools in Southern California, The Gourmandise School in downtown Santa Monica offers hands-on recreational cooking and baking class for beginners to professionals. You learn classic techniques from our instructor in your very own home, or in our state of the art kitchens.  We have classes for adults, kids (6 and over), and teens. Most classes have resumed as in-person, but we are still offering some online classes and events as well.
