The intimate Lavender Inn is the setting for the innovative Ojai Culinary School. The cooking school offers a wide variety of hands-on and demonstration cooking classes ranging from visiting chefs to local artisanal cooks. The emphasis on the cooking classes is to develop technique and expertise along with a sense of ease in the kitchen similar to yours.
Let us cook up a celebration for you – whether it’s a birthday, a bridal shower, or just a group getting together. We can tailor your class to your group’s cooking skill level and type of desired menu. Chefs will work side by side with your group to create a memorable meal.
TEAM BUILDING CLASSES
The Ojai Culinary School is the perfect place to host your corporate team building class offered in three different formats. First, our Italian Instructor Clarissa Fishman (and Innkeeper) offers an interactive approach where employees get to know each other in an environment that is ideal for building strong relations in a fun, hands-on way while eating delicious food. You have a choice of Italian or California/Italian Fusion classes. A competition component that is popular with judging the presentation between the two teams on each course. The second option is a Pizza Making/Interactive class with Chef Randy Graham. This class has proven to be fun yet bonding while creating your own pizzas (gluten-free as well). The third format of our Team Building classes is similar to the TV Show “Chopped” where two teams compete to create the best recipe/food items with a preplanned set of ingredients. “Contestants” work together to plan and execute a dish to win a ‘prize’.
