Cook, Cork & Fork

Cook, Cork and Fork is an equal opportunity employer.

Cook, Cork & Fork is owned by John and Mica Mahler. When they started dating in 2007, Valentine's Day was fast approaching and Mica had no idea what to get this amazing man, who already had every gadget you could imagine. Mica knew John had a love of cooking so she got her creative juices flowing and found them a private cooking class. Neither one of them had ever heard of such a thing...but they LOVED it!! Over the years, John and Mica took several more cooking classes together and started brainstorming how "their" cooking classes would be. Not long after, John decided to leave Corporate America and started putting those brainstorming sessions to work.

In 2015, Cook, Cork & Fork came to fruition. Our mission is to provide a fun, entertaining and at-home feel, while you learn to cook some of your favorite dishes or maybe learn some new techniques. We believe that every cook should also have their favorite tools to use in the kitchen to make their job easy, so after you enjoy some time in the kitchen, you can head into our store and pick up those favorite gadgets you used in class. We truly hope that you enjoy your time with us, and hurry back soon.
