To our loyal CulinAerie Patrons: Washington DC is open in Phase 2 as of Monday, June 22. While we’re delighted the city is emerging from the Covid shutdown, we recognize that the interactive and communal nature of our classes provides unique challenges in terms of safety for both patrons and staff. In order to take the time necessary to thoroughly vet the numerous accommodations needed in this regard, we will reopen on Friday, July 10.

When we re-open, every recommended safety precaution will be observed, including sanitization of all surfaces, social distance spacing, and limits on number of attendees. Please check our home page for further updates, and we look forward to cooking again with you soon.

CulinAerie is the foremost recreational cooking school in the nation's capital.  Located in the heart of downtown Washington DC, CulinAerie offers cooking instruction to enthusiasts of all skill levels, whether you wish to learn basic techniques or more intensive culinary skills.  Our beautiful state-of-the-art kitchens are equipped for the optimal experience in cooking and learning, with sleek commercial equipment and flat-screen televisions for ease of viewing.

Our instructors have on average 15 years of experience in their respective fields, and each brings a unique vision and talent to his or her area of expertise.  Whether you want a participation class in Indian breadmaking, a couples' cooking night out making tapas or Thai food, a knife skills lesson, or our consistently sold-out 12-week Masters series, CulinAerie has something for you.

For a unique corporate outing with an equal blend of competition and camaraderie, CulinAerie offers amateur iron chef competitions, team-bonding and team-building events.  For our individual clients we will customize a birthday party, bridal shower, holiday event or any other occasion in which culinary instruction, good food, and wine are a unique and memorable way to spend time with friends and family.
