Cooking Class - Eco-Friendly Cooking

Create a light three-course meal and that is as kind to your guests as it is to the environment.

This menu celebrates market fresh food from the sea and the earth including a risotto, a refreshing slaw, and a vegan lemon date tart. Chef Yapo will demonstrate stock and vinaigrette preparation, then instruct on how to re-route ingredients that would normally go to waste. He will guide you in building a compost bin for your home to transform kitchen scraps into rich compost for your garden.

Chef Yapo’s love of unique and global flavors is evident in all of his cooking, as well as his commitment to the environment of which he is constantly aware. This interactive class spotlights flavors from Southern California and will get everyone involved in the preparation and cooking.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Chef Travels to You

Chef Yapo graduated from San Diego Culinary Institute and quickly learned that he loved talking about food with the customers more than working in the restaurant, so he started working for people directly with local and organic foods in 2009. Chef Yapo enjoys handmade pasta, unique flavors and global fusion flavors, and is very passionate about no-food-waste-cooking and teaching others how to do it.
