Market Forays

Cooking Classes and Culinary Adventures

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

Due to the current pandemic, group classes are suspended until further notice.
Private classes and virtual classes are available upon request.
Stay safe, be well.

Saturday Market Forays

Saturday Market Forays are ongoing, happening almost every week throughout the year.
We begin at 8:30 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.

Saturday Class Fee: $195 per person
