Meet Diana Miller Cooper

Diana Miller Cooper has been an instructor at The Culinary Center since 2005. She had previously owned and operated a cake and candy shop in Mission, Kansas where she taught classes and baked and decorated hundreds and hundreds of cakes!

Although her area of expertise lies in cakes, cookies and chocolates, she loves to teach savory classes as well as many of our kids classes. One of her very favorite classes (which she developed the concept for) is our “So You Want to Be the Next Foodie TV Star” class for our Junior Chef Academy program. Kids ages 9 to 14 not only get to experience a hands-on cooking class, but also work in teams to write, produce and star in a short “food-television-inspired” cooking show!

Another favorite class of Diana’s is her Cinnamon Roll Critters class in which an adult/child team work together to make cinnamon rolls in the shape of, you guessed it … a critter! Great fun!

In addition to teaching, Diana wears other hats at The CCKC – she is a facilitator for our successful teambuilding program, develops new class concepts and assists in writing our newsletter. She also has the pleasure of meeting with potential new instructors and working with them to develop new classes … keeping our class schedule fresh and fun.

Diana is married to Patrick Cooper and they have two children, John and Sara.
