Become A Culinary Assistant

Becoming a Culinary Assistant (CA) is a great way to both learn and save on cooking classes. Culinary Assistants arrive 1 hour before class to help the instructor set-up, complete any necessary food preparation and assist cooking school coordinator with the set-up of the classroom. It is a great opportunity to not only meet the instructor, but to gain practical experience and get helpful tips from some of the finest chefs and culinary instructors in the Twin Cities area. As a team, the assistants continue to help throughout the class and take care of clean-up at the end.

Culinary Assistants receive free tuition on the classes they assist with, receive advanced registration opportunities and receive a free class, to attend as a guest, for every four classes they facilitate. Culinary Assistants should have knowledge of basic food preparation and service.

Attend one of our monthly orientations to learn more about our program and to tour our operations. Orientations are held at the Cooking School and Event Center on the 2nd level of Calhoun Square directly above Kitchen Window’s retail store. Orientations are generally about 45 minutes long. For more information about the next orientation, please contact us at or call 612-824-4417 ext 105.
