Market Forays

Cooking Classes and Culinary Adventures

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

Saturday Market Forays

Saturday Market Forays are ongoing, happening almost every week throughout the year.
We begin at 8:00 am at the Santa Barbara harbor, proceed to the Farmers Market,
then cook and enjoy a seasonal feast together. We are generally done around 3:30 pm.
This is a hands-on class, accessible to all levels of cooking knowledge.

What are we cooking?

Unlike most cooking classes, where the chef decides on a menu far in advance regardless of who will sign up, I build the menu around your preferences,
combined of course with the best seasonal ingredients. So if you tell me you are coming, I will ask you what you love, what you want to learn,
if you have any allergies or dislikes, and only then do I create the menu.
