CLASS SCHEDULE

These classes will take place in Lars’ Kitchen Classroom located at 85195 State Highway 13, Bayfield, WI 54814 OR at the Chequamegon Food Co-op. 
Classes will vary in time (usually 1.5 to 2.5 hours) depending on the focus. Many classes are hands-on and some are more informational/instructional. At each class you will receive a custom handout with helpful information on the particular topic. At the end of most classes (not knife skills, etc.) you will get to enjoy the finished product! *Please note that classes at the Co-op are usually larger in size and classes at Lars’ Kitchen are a bit more in-depth.
We provide fresh artesian well water… but feel free to bring your own beverage.
If you have any questions, please ask! Thanks!
Or customize your own private class.
