Registrants are paired together in groups or they work individually under the direction of the Chef in an intimate culinary school kitchen setting. Small class sizes ensure that students receive one-on-one time with the Chef and lots of hands on cooking experience. A printed recipe package is provided and at the end of each class students feast on the fruits of their labor! Search recipes from our kitchen.


Culinary Adventures are a special way to experience artisan food production, purchasing and eating from a Chef's perspective! Explore culinary hot spots of the East Bay, Bio-diverse Farms and Cheesemakers in Sonoma, Marin and Napa Counties, San Francisco's Chinatown and much, much more!

For Private Events such as team building, corporate retreats, or private cooking classes, please contact Executive Chef Elena Sirignano at 707.967.2930 or
