We loved our experience at Baltimore Chef Shop. A group of us took the Spanish Tapas class and had the best time. Our teacher was amazing and helped us prepare the best meal. Couldn’t have asked for a better time! Thanks again for having us!

My son and I took the sushi class last night - our first cooking class ever - and it was great. Super nice instructor, fun people, good food!

This place was AMAZING! We participated in a private crepe making class for my sister’s bachelorette party. From the second we got there, we were welcomed warmly into the kitchen and were made to feel right at home. Chef Joseph was extremely knowledgeable and passionate and was patient with each and every one of us no matter what our cooking level was at. We were all amazed at our final product. We would all go back in a heartbeat!

This place is great!! They helped us organize a team building cooking contest. We had fun. We learned a lot. And we even visited the Wine Source for a nice pairing . It is worth every dollar spent for the instruction and the fun... then the awesome food that resulted and we ate together there was like a bonus designer meal !!

Went to the Baltimore chef shop with my husband, sister and brother-in-law for a sushi making class, I got it as a Christmas present for everyone, we had a great evening, the staff were friendly & professional. Make sure to take however much wine, beer or whatever it is you want to drink as can drink while cooking and eating. Great idea for a date or a group night out.

Learning how to cook mouth watering pork buns, dumplings, and spring rolls with our daughter is so much fun. Parent and me class is a great bonding time with your child. We will definitely do this again.

I highly recommend the Baltimore Chef Shop! Had an outstanding experience with the vegan soups class. The setting was intimate and the instructors were outstanding. Lots of hands on experience and personal instruction. I also really appreciate that vegan and vegetarian cooking classes are offered. I can’t wait for my next class!

Chef Scott is AWESOME! My friends and I enjoyed a Birthday Cooking Class in the privacy of my friend’s home for her birthday. It was a very memorable experience. Chef is so professional and he brings everything you need for your cooking session. I definitely will be hosting a cooking class soon...Thanks Chef Scott!

Went to the Indian cooking class and had a great time. Chef Scott was very patient and catered to the skill level of the class well. Made a delicious meal that we hope to recreate at home soon! Highly recommend.

Took a knife skills class with Chef Ryan in his private, in-home kitchen. It was like hanging out with a friend but learning a professional chef’s tricks of the trade (of which, he has many) at the same time, so what could be better? We sliced and diced various fruits and veggies, then at the end of the class we tossed it all in bowl and Chef Ryan whipped up a quick and delicious vinaigrette and demonstrated how to properly dress a salad (another one of his tricks that had nothing to do with knife skills but he was all to happy to show us just the same) and then we all sat down on the back patio with our freshly prepared salad, a glass of wine, and some wonderful conversation. What an enjoyable afternoon. I will definitely be taking more classes with Chef Ryan in the future. Bon Appetit!

Chef Scott is making America Great again. One knife class at a time.

It is enjoyable for the kind of people who have a passion for cooking and doing things the right way. It is also enjoyable for the kind of people with nothing to do on a Thursday afternoon. Lets face it...if you aren’t the first kind of people then you are probably the second kind of people.

The knife class focuses on basic skills in holding and using a knife. Learn the anatomy of a knife. Learn what to invest your money in when it comes to a knife. Learn to care for a knife that you have invested money in. Learn what it means to “julienne”. Learn how much work it takes to be a professional cook. Most importantly...learn how to make magic paste with garlic.

Show up on time. Come to learn. Leave with inspiration. Make America great again.

My husband and I participated in the couples Thai cooking class and had a great time while learning some fabulous recipes and techniques! The staff was very helpful and friendly and the food we cooked was delicious! Highly recommend for a fun and different night out!
— Sharon F. (1.10.16) on Facebook
Chinese food class! Chef Ryan was patient with me (as a novice) and the food - dumplings, steamed fish, bok choy, and Kung Pao chicken- was so good. I’m already signed up for the Indian food class.
— Susan L. (8.9.15) on Facebook
My husband and I loved the knife skills class we had in our home in our very own kitchen. Chef Ryan did an exceptional job — both personable and clearly extremely knowledgeable — and I am delighted with my new skills! I have been cooking almost daily for the last 10 years with horrific knife skills — so happy I booked this class. I am looking forward to taking additional courses and continuing to learn and have fun in the kitchen with Chef Ryan. Great experience!
— Joelle B. (7/24/15)
The tapas class was great, very informative and a very relaxed atmosphere. Chef Ryan was supportive and had things prepared for us very well. The meals we created were very appealing and easy to re-create at home. We are looking forward to the Chef Shop opening on 36th street.
— Laura G. (7/25/15)
I had so much fun at today’s knife skills class and can’t wait to try out all of the fun tips and tricks that we learned! Chef Scott Ryan was awesome and I will definitely be signing up for more classes soon!!
— Lauren M. (6/28/15)
Had a great time at couples cooking. The Thai food was fantastic and Chef Scott Ryan was an amazing host. We really enjoyed our time in your kitchen. Thank you again. We can’t wait to come back.
— Dan M. (2.28.15)
Chef Scott Ryan is a great mentor and a friend who without I would not have learned my foundations, mother sauces, knife skills, and above all the drive to succeed. He is a great teacher and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a lesson, this is your Chef! Chef Scott will not just educate you, he also entertains you and builds lasting memories.
— Chris B. (1.3.15)
Loved the knife skills class on 12/7/14. Chef Scott is extremely knowledgeable and very nice and his kitchen is beautiful. Looking forward to going back for more classes.
— Mary Beth M. (12.8.14)
We had a wonderful time! We first attended the pasta class. We thought we already knew how to make homemade pasta - but this class brought it to a whole new level. We learned great new techniques to make our ravioli and spaghetti turn out perfect - and we even learned a quick delicious sauce recipe. All around - an entertaining afternoon with a purpose. Next, we tried the knife skills class. For the first time in 16 years since it was given to me, I am no longer afraid to use my chef’s knife. Chef Ryan showed us how to hold and use a number of knives properly. With my new-found confidence, I wanted to practice chopping every vegetable in my house. All around it was a very useful course. I would recommend these courses to anyone - from the beginning chef to experienced cooks. I think there is something for everyone here. My husband and I look forward to attending more of Chef Ryan’s classes in the future.
— Lisa C. (11.22.14)
Took the knife class with Chef Scott Ryan. I had the best time! Chef Scott Ryan is a very knowledgeable teacher - but the setting was so relaxing and so there was no stress and just fun, fun, fun! I will be taking all of the courses he teaches. Perfect way to learn to cook well without going to culinary school. Do yourself a favor and sign up for a Sunday class and show up with a good wine!
— Holly A, (7.26.14) on Yelp
My husband and I loved the atmosphere of the place and the entire experience. The Chef was so friendly and inviting and knowledgeable to what we were cooking. And the other gentlemen who were helping in the kitchen very friendly and helpful. Didn’t make us feel like we were not 5 star chefs (even tho we probably were making a huge mess). They were all extremely Happy and Helpful. Genuinely. Not fake. Would recommend to anyone who would like to try a cooking class. From any level of experience.
— Mary D. (9.25.16) on Facebook
This is an awesome self-paced class. Bring a friend, a sweetheart, or go solo. You’re sure to have a blast learning new techniques. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable. They let you learn to cook, they do a few demos, and they jump in when you need assistance or expert advice. I went solo for the Indian Cuisine night and was impressed by how well our table prepared our meal. Come hungry and ready to earn and cook. I can’t wait to return with my wife. I’m hooked!
— Sinclair C. (7.5.16) on Yelp
My wife and I really enjoyed the couples Chinese take out class. Most of the techniques we learned will be easily transferred to our own kitchen at home. The staff was so friendly, great date night!

Tapas Class last night. Educational, low pressure, FUN!!! Master Chef leads the class. Signing up for another class soon. Bringing even more friends next time!!

The Baltimore Chef Shop is truly an amazing experience. The chefs are amazing, knowledgable, and willing to help. They make small talk the entire time & allow you to do your own thing. This establishment will always have my service.
— Laura P. (3.23.16) on Facebook
Took a class last night on Moroccan food. Had a great time, learned some new techniques. Scott and Skiz were terrific and the other folks in the class were wonderful. I will definitely take another class.
— Anne P (3.18.16) on Facebook
Just spent a fun evening cooking Indian food during the Indian cooking class I knew ahead of time what foods we would be cooking based on the great class descriptions. however I didn’t realize it would be a group cooking effort. I hardly got to cook/prep (we got stuck with the easiest dish which was just cutting up a few ingredients and mixing them in a bowl). This ended up being fun by the end-but something I think should have been disclosed. Ideally I would have enjoyed learning how to make each dish on the menu instead of breaking of into pairs and spitting up the dishes. Just something to be aware of. Like I said ended up being a super fun evening and met some great people.
— Lizzie L. (3.19.16) on Yelp

Fantastic knife class! Chef Ryan is fun and informative; I learned so much.
— Linda R. (6/28/15)
My husband and I just took the knife class with Chef Scott Ryan. This was a great class, with 8 participants. The class is very hands on (and all hands stayed intact!) and we learned a lot! It was great to practice the techniques. Chef Ryan was a great teacher, as well as being pleasant and patient with our questions. We are looking forward to taking more classes in their new location which will be just around the corner and sounds like an incredible space.
— Sheryl J. (6.28.15) on YELP
Scott is super nice and very welcoming, and a fun teacher. Guess I need to take all the classes ;)
— Bridgett G. (1.20.15)
My friend and I had a wonderful time. We found the Chef to be extremely helpful and knowledgeable, with lots of take home tips that will make this easy to replicate at home. We’re ready to start pouring over the calendar for the coming months to pick out another class! Thank you!
— Beth W. (1.9.15)
My husband and I just celebrated our anniversary with a fantastic knife skills class in our own kitchen! Chef Scott Ryan was extremely accommodating (we had to reschedule once), friendly, a great teacher and clearly a fabulous chef. He brought all the ingredients and knives, taught us basic techniques and helped us whip up a delicious dinner. It was a unique, fun experience that I would recommend for anyone who enjoys cooking and eating!
