We provide off-site catering for events throughout the Mid-Shore, including Caroline, Talbot, Dorchester, Queen Anne’s, and Kent Counties. We can also accommodate groups of up to 40 people on-site at the Caroline Schoolhouse. This historic building (circa 1901) is the former Caroline High School. It has been fully renovated and now offers three rooms that can be rented individually or in combination.

Chesapeake Culinary Center was established in 2004 with the mission of building a workforce that supports the Eastern Shore’s tourism industry and, by extension, the agriculture and seafood industries. We offer classes and training programs for youth and adults. We also provide a community kitchen and incubator services for small food-based businesses.

We are largely self-sustaining through the catering revenue we generate. However, we pursue grants and donations for capital projects and special programs. Donations are tax deductible and a great investment in your local community!
