Everything You Need to Know

We want you to feel prepared and confident for your first class at Skillette. Here's everything you need to know to ensure a successful experience.

  • What to Wear/Bring

    We will provide aprons, all equipment, and ingredients.

    Students must wear closed-toed shoes, hair pulled back if long, and no loose sleeves. You'll be on your feet most of class, so wear comfortable shoes and clothing.

  • Location & Parking

    We're located inside La Cosecha Market, in the Union Market District at 1280 4th St NE, Washington, DC 20002. There is free three-hour parking in the La Cosecha garage (located on the backside of the building).

  • Arrival

    Classes will begin on time and instruction will not be repeated for late arrivals. DC traffic can be heavy and parking tough, so plan to arrive early to park and get situated in class!

  • Class Format

    Every class will focus on a specific culinary skill expressed through several recipes. Students will work in pairs to learn the skill and give each other feedback and guidance.

  • Schedule Management

    Students can manage their schedule via the link below. We have a 24 hour cancellation policy. If you cancel a class outside of of 24 hrs, the class will be added back to your account.

  • Skill Medallions

    When students successfully master a skill during class, they'll earn a virtual medallion that can be viewed in their Skillette Account. Medallions are worth points that can be redeemed towards various offers and products.

This Season's Classes

Our classes change quarterly to focus on seasonal skills. Every class will have a vegetarian/dairy-free option and we'll do our best to accomodate allergies.
