Market Forays

Cooking Classes and Culinary Adventures


As more of us are getting vaccinated and infection rates in Santa Barbara lessen, I am planning to resume classes in May.
Groups will meet at 8:30 at the Fishermen's Market in Santa Barbara Harbor, then shop our spectacular Farmers Market before heading to the kitchen,
where we will prepare a delicious seasonal meal together. This a hands-on class, and all skills levels are welcome.
In order to keep everyone safe, I request that you attest to having received the COVID-19 vaccine.
Lightweight single use masks will be provided if you don't have one. (Masks are required at the Fishermen's and Farmers Market).
The kitchen is well ventilated, and we will enjoy our luncheon outdoors in the garden for additional safety.

I look forward to cooking with you,


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: $225 per person
