Cooking Class - Southern California Winter Cooking

Stay California cool with this breezy menu featuring the region’s best.

This five-course menu is a shrimp lover’s dream as it stars in a bisque, grilled skewers, and a rice pilaf. Glazed pork medallions and a tangy asparagus dish add some weight and color to the meal which is perfect for entertaining year-round.

Chef Yapo is an amazing chef and we are glad we attended his cooking class. We were looking for a California cuisine cooking class in San Diego and his class didn't disappoint. Highly recommended.

Chef Yapo is great! He was so gracious with his time and even offered to walk my girlfriend and I through the entire process of the meal! We learned so much and are excited to do some more cooking on our own :)

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.
