Work together with your colleagues to make dinner, then sit down to enjoy all you’ve created. The class and meal will take place in Chef Gene's charming West Hollywood home, and guests are invited bring their own wine or beer to the class and to pair with the meal.

I was raised on the East Coast and graduated from Wesleyan University. I took my first step in culinary education by traveling to Russia, where I was inspired to recreate the French-influenced cuisine of the Tzars. I immersed myself in French cooking, training at the Le Cordon Bleu. I then traveled to Italy, and under the tutelage of Chef Massimo Natale, focused on authentic Italian cuisine. I credit Julia Child as my culinary muse, and once had the great fortune to meet her.
