In the colder months, one of the creature-comforts we enjoy most of all is feasting to our hearts content. Whether it be at a Holiday gathering or just hibernating at home in front of a Netflix series that, let’s face it, won’t watch itself, we often use food as a source of comfort and security. While whipping up a meal or snack comes naturally to some, it doesn’t necessarily come as easily for others. Luckily, Alpharetta has a number of options for those who are more challenged in the kitchen and can use some extra guidance.


Offering hands on cooking classes at the Alpharetta Commons location at 4305 State Bridge Rd, Publix Aprons is a full-service cooking school with a variety of classes for all levels from novice to experts who are just looking to grow their recipe collection. Topics covered include Holiday cookies, German staples, Couples Cooking, and many more. Private classes are also offered for those who prefer a more intimate experience.

Just down the road at the Avalon shopping complex is Salud! Cooking School in the Whole Foods Market.

Salud! even offers classes for children because it is never too early to start learning to be self-sufficient in the kitchen. Prices range from $25 to $70 per person.
