  • Hands-On Cooking Classes

    I offer Hands-on, Group cooking classes in San Francisco. Group Classes can be private parties (for 8-25 people) which allow for complete customization around the menu, timing and particulars. Public classes are capped at twelve people and are posted monthly on my website. I teach Cooking where Chemistry and Creativity overlap. The repertoire covers a wide range of menus and themes and feature seasonal, nutrition-dense, recipes that deliver sophisticated flavors in approachable and repeatable preparations. I teach out a motivation to get people eating better through getting them cooking more and to that expand, explain not just the steps of a recipe but the kitchen chemistry and theory that underlies each step. Classes are single sessions that cover a complete meal and many people return for multiple sessions. Classes are hands-on and allow for questions throughout. We cook for 2 hours and then sit down to eat the meal for about one hour more. Classes are priced per session and are $75 to $95 per 3-hour session.

  • Cooking & Lifestyle Coaching

    (3 reviews)

    Eat seasonal, local, healthy, organically grown and yummy food tailored to your preferences and/or health conditions. Come experience my joy and adventure in the kitchen! I am available for events of 2-100, as private dinner parties in your or my home or anywhere there is a kitchen. I have a beautiful kitchen and dining room available for intimate dinner parties with an island and dining table that seats 12 comfortably. If you prefer, I also hold cooking-class-dinner parties in my home where I teach you and your guests how to prepare the dishes on the menu, and then dinner is served when we're done cooking. I believe every vegetable and/or animal product that exists has at least one way it can be prepared to bring out its best flavor and texture. In my cooking, I always seek this out to challenge my creative process in the kitchen and to expand my and your taste buds.
