this is funded by Wegman's so you know it's going to be great? there are cooking courses on site. There is a bistro on the roof overlooking the lake. All in all while it can be touristy? It is something to see.

If you're in the Finger Lakes region and want a great glass of something (wine and beer), you need to see the Culinary Center. Great setting, classes, tastings, view. It's hard to match this spot in Canandaigua.

The sessions are a bit pricey but all the ingredients are of the highest quality. This is a non-profit institution that supports culinary education. There always seems to be a large turnover in staff as different personnel seems to be there each year we come...More

You definitely have to book cooking classes and other events. Not sure if reservations are necessary for the restaurant.
