Le Gourmet Culinary is a cooking school located at 541 W Chapman Avenue in Suite A in Old Towne. Just outside of the circle, and located inside of Le Gourmet Kitchen, Le Gourmet Culinary is placed in the best location to offer top of the line cooking classes. At Le Gourmet Culinary, you will not find yourself in a class size over 12. They offer small, intimate cooking classes so you get hands on experience and individual attention while learning the craft. However, they can also host large private parties, fundraisers, corporate team building, and other events. Whether you’re just a beginner or already a gourmet cook, Le Gourmet offers a class for everyone. One fantastic thing to note is that Le Gourmet Culinary is moving towards an all organic, farm to table cooking school. They will be the first in Orange County to make this change!

Le Gourmet has several chefs, but a recent addition to their team is inspiring nutrition values within the culinary school. Chef Eda graduated from Boston University with a Master’s in Nutrition. In recent years, she was a food service director for several unified school districts, bringing a farm to table approach to 22,000 kids, many of them in lower socio economics. Chef Eda is a mommy of 2 and also an instructor at the Art Institute. She is bringing a nutritional approach to Le Gourmet with the summer kids camps and the new “Mommy & Me” classes that teach moms how to make organic baby food recipes. This class is designed to inform, encourage, and inspire busy parents to provide their little ones with the best start in life. You will definitely want to take a few hours and book a class with the amazing Chef Eda!
