"Great experience and exceptional food!!!!"

- Lizzie M., YELP

 

OUR MISSION

"Good food comes from healthy, fresh ingredients.  My philosophy is simple - if you use farm-fresh local produce, seafood, meats and breads, you can create amazing made-from-scratch meals that are simple to recreate on your own.  All classes include knife techniques, organizational skills, hands-on cooking and a live discussion designed to teach new flavor combinations.  I assure you will have a memorable experience!" - Chef Jason

Most famously, we're known for our team building corporate retreats but in partnering with one of San Diego's best chefs you can find yourself in  Solana Beach and Encinitas cooking classes for kids and adults or indulging in farm fresh food and made from scratch meals on a culinary adventure of a lifetime!
