Learn. Cook. Eat!


South Bay School of Cooking is open, continually following the ‘new normal’ of county health guidelines. We have updated class policies to protect the health and safety of our students and staff. Class sizes are reduced, we will check temperatures upon entry, good hygiene is required, and all students must wear masks (face shields encouraged too).

Chop. Saute. Stir. Mix. Bake. Cook. Yes, YOU.

Release your inner chef with a cooking class from the South Bay School of Cooking. Learning to cook should be fun. In our classes, you work around a communal island, making recipes and sharing tasks. The room is alive with laughter, vivid with the aromas of fresh herbs and spices, electric with the sizzling sounds of sautéing. No one gets banished to an outer work station to fumble away in solitude. When you leave the class, you will be able to recreate recipes that once appeared daunting like coq au vin blanc, savory soufflés, pad Thai noodles, and perfect paella.
