On April 13, 2013 the Kitchenique Cooking School will begin classes at the Cuvee Catering Center in the Community Bank Plaza at 12590 Emerald Coast Parkway, Suite C, in Miramar Beach.

A fixture in Destin since 1985, the Kitchenique Store and Cooking School at City Market closed in February of this year to re-launch a new retail space in the Retail Therapy mini-mall on Highway 98 in Santa Rosa Beach. The retail location continues offering customers valued products like ScanPan ® cookware, Jura Capresso® coffee makers and an extensive line of gourmet food products exclusive to Kitchenique.

The Cuvee Catering Center offers a state of the art teaching kitchen with integrated HDTV/multi-media capability as well as a 2,000 square foot poolside deck for outdoor grilling classes. Chef/Owner Tim Creehan comments "We are honored and excited to team up with an organization of Kitchenique’s status. We look forward to our association with a great Emerald Coast brand and one of Destin's top magnets for tourist and locals alike.

For the past three years, TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel website, has named the Kitchenique Cooking School the number one attraction or “ thing to do” when visiting Destin, Florida. Owner and Cooking School Director Vicki McCain remarked, “We are thrilled at the possibilities this new venue offers. It’s a world class facility in design and equipment. We're excited to introduce and promote our talented local chefs to new customers, friends and loyal customers who’ve supported our culinary community through the years.”
