Cooking Assistant Program


If you love cooking, sign up to be a class assistant for a true “behind-the-scenes” experience!

Qualifications for Becoming an Assistant

  • Attend a cooking class offered at SoHo as a participant first

  • Be able to move around and be on feet assisting in the kitchen during a 3.5 hour period (with breaks, of course!)

What the Assistants Do

  • Set up the kitchen area and meet the chef before the class

  • Help the chef throughout the class with clean up and serving food

  • Pour drinks for cooking class guests throughout the class

  • Wash dishes throughout the class and at the end

Time Commitment

Roughly 3.5 hours (usually 5:00-8:30 pm)

Most of our classes are offered at 6 pm, though please double-check the schedule to know if the class you sign up for is different!  Plan on arriving an hour before the class begins and staying 30-45 minutes after the class to finish any clean up.

What’s In It For You

  • Meet new people, including local chefs

  • Learn new kitchen and service skills

  • Receive copies of all recipes used during each class

  • Sample food made during each class

  • Store discount

If you would like more information, please complete the interest form below. Once we receive this form, we will reach out to you to schedule a date for you to shadow another class assistant. Once you shadow the assistant, we can talk about scheduling you for your own class.

Thank you for your interest in our program, we look forward to cooking with you!
