Conquer your kitchen with this deep-dive class into our bountiful local seafood! Cooking skills of all levels are welcome!

KITCHEN Master Class: New England Seafood Feast is a deluxe class. You'll eat your fill of the highest quality seafood available from our cold New England waters, courtesy of our partners, Red's Best.

In this lively, hands-on cooking class you’ll learn how to utilize the produce and products of the farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market. Guided by Chef Jen you’ll create an exciting three-course meal based on seasonal, local food, and increase your comfort in the kitchen through new knife skills, techniques, and flavor profiles.

In addition to learning a new cooking style, you'll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.

Come ready to roll up your sleeves and get cooking!

Unfortunately, we cannot accomodate vegetarian or vegan requests; however, we can make this menu gluten free. Please email kitcheninfo@thetrustees.org to request a gluten free option or to inquire about allergies. Please note that The KITCHEN is not a certified gluten free or nut-free facility and there is always a slight risk of cross contamination.

Our hands-on cooking classes are structured as a group learning experience; you’ll work with other students to create a seasonal meal led by our professional chef instructors. We focus on learning new cooking styles and techniques to increase your confidence and enjoyment in your own kitchen. Here are a few things to know before booking a class with us:

  • Each class is centered on the local, seasonal farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market, so menus may change slightly based on what’s available the day of the event.
  • During each class, you’ll learn 2 or 3 recipes, you’ll work with between 2 and 4 other students to create each one, and you’ll enjoy a plentiful taste of each.
  • Classes are usually between 2 and 2.5 hours long, unless otherwise noted.
  • Please be prepared to be on your feet, standing at a table, and cooking for the duration of class.
  • We recommend comfortable, non-slip, and closed-toe shoes.

Tickets: $68 for Trustees member and $85 for Non-Trustees Members. Members must bring their current member card and number. Join The Trustees and save! Members save between 20-40% off all classes in The KITCHEN.
