Take part in experiential learning while enjoying the freshest, tastiest food found on a college campus at Studio 40.

Studio 40 is an open, interactive demonstration kitchen right in the heart of Bear’s Den, the South 40 Campus’ residential dining facility. The space was designed to host social and educational event series centered around cooking fresh, local cuisines.

The venue has quickly become a hot place to book cooking classes, small gatherings amongst friends and formal chef tables with students, faculty and guests. Housed directly alongside the various made-to-order food concepts in Bear’s Den, Studio 40 provides a bustling, energetic setting, while still providing warmth just like your home kitchen.

Cooking classes focus on a variety of topics including the Dine with the Dietitian series, culturally-themed meals, pop-up restaurants and more.
