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 was a consummate professional and a lot of fun! We got to make pasta from scratch - need I say more?! It was a very hands-on experience, we all got to participate and learn in the process. And the food we made was delicious! Good time had by all!

Private In-Home Class

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.
