Cooking Classes

The Essex is known as one of the premier resorts with cooking classes in New England, and for good reason. For years, The Essex has been peeling back the veil on their own culinary operation, sharing with locals and guests alike the secrets to making mouthwatering meals. 

Build your kitchen fundamentals with a knife skills workshop. Bring a little beauty to your baking by learning cake decorating. Or take a peek at how the pros put together a meal with a curated dinner experience.

Experience all this and more alongside the culinary experts behind The Junction, The Essex’s interactive restaurant. Now, who needs an apron?
