I know, this in Half Moon Bay, but the ~INSIDE THE KITCHEN~ series of cooking classes are fab, and feature a lot of SF chefs! This year’s line up includes Jennifer Biesty, chef, and Scott Baird, bar manager, Coco500; Traci Des Jardins, executive chef, and Eugenio Jardim, sommelier, Jardinière; Laurence Jossel, executive chef, Nopa; Jonnatan Leiva, executive chef, Jack Falstaff; Kirti Pant, executive chef, Junoon; Ryan Scott, chef, Myth Café; Gregory Short, executive chef, Masa’s; Staffan Terje, executive chef, Perbacco; special guest Hung Huynh, winner of from Bravo TV’s “Top Chef.”
The nine classes feature small plates of each recipe, a beverage pairing, and a recipe booklet to take home. In addition to teaching a class based on the cuisine of their restaurant, each guest chef will partner with Navio’s chef de cuisine, Aaron Zimmer, and offer a one-night-only chefs’ tasting menu that features signature dishes from both restaurants. You can even make a field trip/overnight stay of it—just check out my jetsetter piece on Half Moon Bay for some tips on where else to eat, stay, and play!
