about schola

Interactive, hands-on, fun cooking classes & private events…

We started Schola as a place where people could come together, put on an apron and learn about where food comes from and how to cook it. All of our classes are designed to intrigue the beginner as well as the seasoned veteran in the kitchen. The classes are a hands-on experience and usually last between two and three hours.

Schola is BYOB and we encourage our students to bring a bottle of something to enjoy while they cook and eat together. We’ll always have plenty of stemware on hand!

  • The knife is the chef’s most important tool—join us for our Knife Skills & Sharpening class on January 17th! The class will start with a lecture about knives, how they’re made, how to sharpen them and what the different types are used for. The class will then go to work practicing the basic cuts, large & small dice, batonettes, peeling with a paring knife and mincing. Each student will then go to work deboning their own chicken. Everything we cut up will become dinner! Please feel free to bring your own knives and we’ll help you sharpen them on our sharpening stones. #scholacooks #mybmore #visitbaltimore
  • We had great fun with this group of young chefs-in-training today! Next Junior Masters class is Saturday, January 21. Save a spot for your young ones! #mybmore #visitbaltimore #friendsofchuck #scholacooks
