Impress your friends with your knife skills and gourmet touches at your next dinner party!


From September until the end of June, we offer various hands-on classes in the culinary arts, such as Introduction to Culinary Arts, Knife Skills, On A Roll with Sushi & Sake, and many more! The Community Education program is specifically designed not only to teach the amateur cook the basics, but also to give the more advanced chef a chance to learn something new. Whether you’re a homemaker, busy professional, alumni, or food enthusiast, we invite you to enroll today and explore all facets of the industry.


All Community Education culinary classes take place inside the historic Allison Mansion at 4207 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104, unless expressly stated in the class description. Guests are welcome to use our FREE gated parking lot directly off of Walnut Street between 42nd and 43rd Streets. Parking is available on a first come, first served basis. Please enter the main entrance to be directed to your class by a College representative.
