Cooking Class - Basic Cooking Series

Classes to get you started in the kitchen.

The basic cooking series consists of Wednesday cooking classes providing you enough information and hands on cooking to get you feeling more comfortable in the kitchen.

We'll talk about setting things up for efficiency and ease of use. We'll try different preparation and cooking techniques so you can figure out what works for you. And we'll make food all along the way so you can gain the confidence needed to start making dinner at home. At the end of the class, we will all sit down and enjoy the meal we prepared.

See the menu for individual class details. Take individual classes or the series.

Each 3-hour cooking class session is $75, if you book all three sessions, you pay only $200 in total.

I was part of a group of seven who took this cooking class with Douglas and it was a fantastic experience! We learnt new techniques, had great food and a wonderful time! I look forward to the next class I will be taking with Douglas.

I have over 30 years of professional restaurant and cooking experience, initially working in Maine and later moving to California. I had the good fortune to study with the founders of the French Laundry for many years. I cook meals for groups of guests and offer cooking classes both of which have been very popular in San Francisco. I continue to travel to Southern Europe to find new ideas and explore the culinary traditions that mix well with California-style cooking.
