Culinary Center of Kansas City

Housed in a beautifully restored 6,500 square foot turn-of-the-century buggy barn in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park (KS), The Culinary Center of Kansas City offers two spacious teaching kitchens, large event spaces, offices and a retail store. In this amazing space (and off-site as well), we offer more than 600 high-quality contemporary cooking classes and demonstrations in the culinary arts each year and hundreds of interactive cooking parties, culinary events and teambuilding experiences.

We are also home to The Midwest BBQ Institute, Junior Chefs Academy, All Hands For Hunger (interactive cooking parties with a community service purpose), CookWell! (corporate wellness program and healthy cooking classes), Dinners on Demand (frozen chef-prepared dishes for sale to the public) and a thriving Kitchen Shop selling unique culinary items and local maker products for your shopping pleasure.

Visit us for some good food, unique gifts and lots of fun. Whether cooking is one of your hobbies or an obsession, we can satisfy that “hunger” (pun intended)!

See you in our Kitchens!
