About our menu

In addition to our seasonal menus, on Thursdays and Fridays our students will be taking culinary trips around the world with their class: International Cuisine. From classic French and Italian cooking to the fiery flavors and techniques of Mexico and Szechwan China, each week we will feature a different region of the world on our “specials” menu. Also, Monday through Wednesdays, our Contemporary American Bistro Cooking class will be serving seasonal foods  prepared with a modern flair.

Please join us in the Laney Bistro, as our students hone their culinary skills offering you fine dining at affordable prices.
