Cooking Class - A Picnic!

Cook an idyllic outdoor tapas menu, perfect for elegant picnic meals!

Pack up your picnic basket with festive handheld bites perfect for an outdoor concert, a trip to the park, or an elegant night of appetizers al fresco. Chef Anja’s culinary aesthetic is French Californian, combining the sophistication and techniques of French cuisine with fresh California flavors and ingredients.

Chef Anja’s picnic menu starts with a twist on the classic bruschetta that uses tender brie, sundried tomatoes, and fresh basil. For the next course, lemon and tarragon bring out the rich flavor of smoked salmon and ripe tomatoes while spinach, pine nuts, and gorgonzola add a unique spin to the quesadilla. Prosciutto wrapped dates and chocolate covered strawberries studded with Himalayan salt crystals end the meal with a sumptuous pairing of salty and sweet.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy. For classes hosted at the Mission location, a $10 corkage fee is charged on-site by the venue.

Chef Anja flawlessly executed a pasta making team building class for 27 people (from Japan, Europe, China, Canada and the US!) and it truly was the perfect alternative to a regular sit down team dinner. The event ran seamlessly, the arrangements ahead of time couldn't have been easier (even with our ever changing headcount) and she was able to accommodate all food allergies. Highly, highly recommend Chef Anja!

We did a team building event with Chef Anja and it was awesome! I think everyone was a little hesitant at first if we were actually going to have anything edible at the end of the night, but as soon as the timer started the entire team was so energized and everyone made amazing meals! It was such a fun experiences - I would definitely recommend this for a team event or just with a group of friends! Thanks, Anja!
