We are neither a culinary school nor an institute. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles and thriving communities by leveraging the stories of agriculture, food, and craft beverages to inspire creative exploration of the incredible bounty of New York State.

There is so much to explore at the New York Kitchen! Each day, New York Kitchen drives its nonprofit mission forward through educational hands-on cooking classes and programs, wine and craft beverage classes and experiences, industry certification courses, a 100% New York State Tasting Room featuring wine, beer, cider, and distilled spirits from across the Empire State, and Junior Chef youth programming. In addition to our educational classes and programs, New York Kitchen features a restaurant, the New York Kitchen Café, a dining experience brought to you by Best Beverage Catering, overlooking beautiful Canandaigua Lake.

Class ticket purchases are non-refundable or exchangeable for any reason. This is because New York Kitchen purchases materials and plans for classes based on the number of participants registered. However, if you’d like to offer your seat in that class to a friend or family member, we’d be happy to let them take your spot.
