Demonstration Kitchen

Taste. Learn. Enjoy.

Join us on Saturdays in our intimate, informal working kitchen to discover the tastes of Kohler – and how to recreate them at home. Tucked away in The Shops at Woodlake Kohler, the Demonstration Kitchen brings together professional chefs and enthusiastic foodies for presentations, preparation and tasting.

Saturday offerings include presentations at 11am and 2pm.
All sessions are $35 per person, plus tax

To make a reservation, call and ask for Demonstration Kitchen reservations.
