Looking to brush up on your cooking skills? Searching for the newest social hot spot for a date, girls night out,corporate event or a team building exercise? Stop by Whisk, Cary, NC’s destination for premier cooking classes. Several times a week, we host classes taught by some of the Triangle’s most renowned chefs. There is something for everyone with our topical and themed cooking classes, which change depending on the time of year. Some of our themes and topics include Young Chefs, Holiday Entertaining, Just Desserts, and more.

At Whisk, our Cary cooking classes go far beyond just teaching you a recipe from a cookbook. You can’t walk into a restaurant and ask the chef how he makes a certain dish. At Whisk, you can learn from many different chefs from all over Triangle and ask them your own questions.

Our chefs aim to teach you about the tools, skills and techniques that you need to create a great dish - what other places do you know of that will let you have a one-on-one conversation with a professional chef? We want you to be able to use your new set of skills to master any recipe you want to bring to life. Whisk is proud to provide cooking classes to customers in Cary, Apex, Raleigh and surrounding areas in NC.
