A. Chef’s Cooking Studio was originally just a daydream. Chef Andrea, always a lover of art and food, dreamed up the idea of a Studio for cooks! Home cooks, professional cooks, those who want to learn, and those who want to share, would have a Studio to call home.
In December of 2006, that daydream turned into a reality, as Chef Andrea and her Husband and Co-Owner, Michael, unlocked the doors of their then, new enterprise! A. Chef’s Cooking Studio was born!
It’s been over 12 years and the joy of serving Jacksonville, The Beaches, Southside, Ponte Vedra, Bartram, Saint Augustine and guests from as far as Orlando and Amelia island continues today!
Our Studio is a place of food, joy and love! Join us! Guests Chef’s share their trade secrets and passions with you! From our ever-popular Home Chef Series to party events, to our much loved wine club, there is something for everyone in our Studio!
We are Northeast Florida’s Original Cooking Studio! We look forward to cooking with you soon too!
We open A. Chef’s Cooking Studio Facebook page to you and your friends! Share recipes, ask questions of the chef, post photos of your cooking adventures, etc!
We welcome all who love to cook!

A great home chef’s kitchen starts with the foundation of utilizing every scrap to create flavorful stocks. Stocks are the base of all great sauces. Getting an elegant and delicious dinner on the table, without the uses of recipes, develops your understanding how to create delicious sauces. This class shows you all you need to make flawless stocks at home and how to use them in your everyday cooking!
How, when, and why, are answered. You become a master of these stove-top cooking techniques. Your recipe-free cooking days are ahead!
Learn the difference, and techniques, for these indispensable skills for both meats and vegetables.
This evening we make a classic pasta dough from scratch, roll into sheets for no-boil lasagna, and cut into fettuccini – we add two more sauces to our HCS collection, a delicious marinara and a creamy alfredo.
There’s nothing like homemade bread! We get you there by teaching the basics of every bread dough including yeast, proofing, when to knead, when to stop and the best techniques and tricks for baking.
