To all of the people that attended my classes for the last 20 years,


I am writing to inform you that I have decided to take a break from teaching the regular schedule of classes here at Mumford's Culinary Center, and have decided to focus solely on private classes for the time being.

The reason for my decision is based on the fact that I am just too busy. The restaurant has become increasingly busier these days, with serving breakfast and lunch 6 days a week, and providing catering 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  

The other reason for my decision to discontinue the regular classes is due to the intensive labor that I endure for the organic garden that we have here at Mumford's.  Beginning from February, I start the process from seed in my personal greenhouse, and the labor continues up until the pulling of the last root vegetable in November.  I simply cannot continue provide the attention and passion that I used to for my culinary classes, and I can no longer fit it all into my schedule.  

I am optimistic that down the road, I will be able to do the occasional "pop-up class," for all my loyal and passionate students.

I am hopeful that everyone understands, and I look forward to seeing everyone here at the restaurant.

Kindest regards,


 Chef Chris Mumford
