Created by Laurence Hauben, Market Forays offers more than cooking classes.
It opens a window into a more gracious, relaxed, and happier way of life.
Sharing the bounty of local, seasonal foods is just the beginning.
Market Forays offers culinary experiences, cooking classes,
and adventures for leisure travelers, private parties, and corporate groups.
When you want the ultimate locavore experience, Market Forays is for you.
From my French childhood I inherited a love of cooking and an almost visceral passion for fresh, high quality ingredients.
The years I spent in Africa taught me true hospitality. The gift of spending my adult life in California has been increasing freedom, grounded in French techniques but emboldened by the multi-ethnic richness of the New World.
The result is a colorful cuisine that follows the seasons, centered on the amazing ingredients
grown and raised by small producers who have become my friends.
When you join my table, you are invited to share not only in the food, but also in the friendship.
I look forward to cooking with you,
Private Market Forays are available by request during the week for groups of four or more,
and gift certificates are available for purchase.
I can also create a special event just for your group,
be it a few friends or a corporate retreat.
Market Forays are ongoing every Saturday.
