La Cuisine

A New Culinary Experience in Bozeman

La Cuisine is a unique and engaging Bozeman gastronomical experience that centers around many of the values we embrace in this community:  Building relationships and creating memories, sharing experiences and enjoying local and global flavors, and coming together to simply enjoy each other’s company.



Tina and Brett Cusker, who are multi-generational Montanans, launched this business in 2021 and in less than two years they've begun collecting accolades, earning the #1 New Business in a local readers’ poll. Offering a retail store with locally-sourced products, La Cuisine has also been recognized for both buying Made in Montana products and Best Shop for Gifts. The store also features high-end European products.  

Their mission is to make accessible the culinary tools and skills to create delicious meals and cultivate memories in the kitchen and around the table, which is the heart of every home.  This mission further builds community across the Gallatin Valley.  After 25 years of traveling around the world and experiencing the relationships and memories that are created when people come together and share a meal, Cusker knew she wanted to bring that back home. This same experience is shared across the centuries and across all cultures and the gateway to that  practice is what Bozeman now offers in La Cuisine.  


Utilizing a state of the art kitchen, La Cuisine offers both demonstration and hands-on cooking classes for all skill levels. They have a full calendar of events listed on their website and they host  private events, bridal and birthday parties, team building events, and corporate entertaining.  Pupils are not only led by professional in-house chefs but learn at the knee of local guest chefs as well.  As Julia Child once said, “The more you know, the more you can create.  There’s no end to imagination in the kitchen.”

La Cuisine gives back to the Bozeman community through events hosted specifically for active, reserve, and retired military as Brett is a 25-year Air Force veteran. Tina is a 30-year career educator with a passion for cooking and entertaining and enjoys bringing together the top chefs and caterers in the Gallatin valley to make cooking and entertaining simple and enjoyable.
