Come Together to Cook, Eat and Learn

Food has a way of bringing us together, creating friendships and encouraging conversation.

The Culinary Arts Institute at LCCC brings you and your friends to the kitchen where you can learn, celebrate and explore shared traditions. Local families, friends and foodies of all sorts will find a different kind of adventure in our classrooms, kitchens and restaurant.

If you’re ready for a culinary adventure, stop by and put on an apron. Our team of chefs will provide all of the ingredients and expert instruction so you and your friends can learn new skills and have some fun. Come for the party and we’ll take care of the clean-up. 

If you’d rather leave the cooking to someone else, indulge in the fine cuisine prepared by our own students and chefs at Sage & Seed restaurant. Our culinary students will take great care of you from front-of-house to meal preparation as part of their capstone course.
