Cooking Class - Mediterranean Californian Fusion

Find out what transpires when you learn to blend Mediterranean heritage with classic California flavors.

In this hands-on class, Chef Ziva takes some of the recipes and techniques from her Mediterranean heritage and puts a little California twist on them.

Chef Ziva will teach you how to elegantly blend sweet and savory to make Moroccan chicken tagine with apricot and cinnamon to balance the savory saffron, garlic, fresh herbs, and juicy, tender chicken. In addition, the soft coconut-infused basmati rice and the sourness of fresh cabbage salad will embrace your heart in a way that will take you directly to the streets of Casablanca.

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

We had a great time cooking with Ziva! The recipes are delicious, her home is warm and inviting, and the experience is meticulously prepared and well organized. Ziva has great tips and the class is very hands-on. She goes out of her way to explain everything you are interested in learning - knife skills, where to source ingredients, family stories about recipes etc. Ziva is also a lot of fun to learn from! My family and I will definitely be back for more experiences. Did I mention everything was super delicious? 100% recommended!

Chef Ziva is lovely and so much fun to learn from. The afternoon started as chef and students but quickly felt like friends getting together. Very relaxed. Food was delish and very do-able. Chicken Tangine, YUM!!!! Chef allows for a very hands-on approach. After a quick demo my adult kids and I did most of the prep. I asked for a knife skills quick tip and she was more than happy to show us the best way to chop, slice, etc. We all agreed we will take another class with Ziva in the near future.
