Foray: A daring sortie, reconnaissance, or adventure, usually for the purpose of (delicious) plunder.

MARKET FORAYS DURING COVID-19

The current health emergency is precluding in person group classes. Private classes and virtual classes are available upon request.

Cooking has not stopped. In fact, the importance of maintaining a local source of trusted producers
and that of healthy, beautiful home cooking have never been greater.
I wish you good health and resilient spirits. Together we will get through this.
Take care, Laurence

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 was just the beginning.

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, caught and raised by small producers and artisans 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,

Laurence
