Cooking Class - Modern California Comfort

Learn Chef Cathy’s secrets to flawless gazpacho, strawberry tartlets, and more.

Master this delightful menu and learn how to cook a colorful array of courses filled with bright flavors, fresh ingredients, and tantalizing textures. A trained chef with ample experience cooking for fine European hotels, Chef Cathy knows how to build a meal that delights the palate and her knack for teaching makes the course a relaxing experience with plenty of take-home tips for home-cooks and future meals.

Class begins with a delicate amuse bouche to stimulate the palate followed by a vivid green gazpacho, which you will learn how to expertly plate with an eye-catching swirl of contrasting sauce. Luscious tomato-herb crusted salmon is blanketed with ripe summer herbs and tomatoes, while her techniques elevate simple rice pilaf into a symphony of texture and flavor. This satisfying 5 course meal ends with a buttery strawberry tartlet where juicy seasonal strawberries are balanced on a thick layer of decadent banana cream.

I attended Chef Cathy's German cooking class and had a really good time. Being from Germany myself, I can say that I have high standards when it comes to German cuisine. Cathy has (from what I remember) over 30 years of experience as a Chef in German and Swiss cuisine and you notice it. The dishes were delicious and simple to make at home. Also, Cathy has a lot of knowledge of German/Swiss culture and her place is like a nice German/Swiss souvenir shop with a lot of items from that part of Europe. I can certainly recommend her for both social and team building cooking classes in Los Angeles.
