Coming Soon to Heirloom: Cooking, Crafting, Kids, and Wellness Classes

With the majority of our autumn classes already at capacity, Heirloom Cookshop is excited to announce expanded workshop offerings in 2020! Equal parts kitchen and community hub, since it’s genesis Heirloom Cookshop has created a space for nourishment, connection, creativity, and innovation. In that spirit, our winter series of educational offerings is expanding in order to better reflect our values, talents, and interests as a community. Just as integral in the design of the Heirloom Cookshop space as she is the composition of her weekly menus, Chef Schu shares, “I consider myself an artist that works with many mediums, inside and outside of the Cookshop.
