Chef-Led Cooking Classes

Our Chef-Led Cooking Classes

Learn secrets to cooking from Central Oregon chefs!  These classes are hosted by HDFFA and led by regional chefs who will tantalize your taste buds through cooking demos featuring locally sourced ingredients. Each 2-hour class will feature at least one local farm.

Pay it Forward

The best part, these classes are BUY ONE GIVE ONE.  This means that for every ticket sold, HDFFA enrolls a family in our free Cooking Matters program held throughout Central Oregon each spring and fall. This model allows us to pay it forward.

Purchase a Ticket

Tickets are $85 per person, $150 for a couple/pair.  Class size is limited to 10-12 people.

2020 Class Schedule

We’re currently dreaming up some amazing classes for 2020. Check back soon for more details!
