Class format: Start your class with a snack and a lecture from the chefs about the theme’s tips & tricks. After this introduction, you will break up into teams of three or four people, and start cooking a recipe. Each team/station will make a different recipe, so the class as a whole prepares the menu in its entirety. You are encouraged to rotate from one station to another, but you won’t be able to make every dish. After you’ve finished cooking, sit down to a dinner party with your classmates and feast on the spread that you have just learned how to prepare. You are welcome to eat as much as you’d like in class, but unfortunately Kitchen on Fire’s zoning permit does not allow students to take food home.
Wine and other Alcoholic Beverages: We whole-heartedly invite class participants (who are 21 and older) to bring any beverages they would like to enjoy during their stay at Kitchen on Fire for personal consumption. We cannot sell or distribute alcohol and we uphold ABC regulations. No minor can drink and we cannot have intoxicated students attending a class. Our friends at Vintage Berkeley wine shop on Vine Street will extend a 10% discount on any bottles you purchase for your class at Kitchen on Fire – just bring in this letter.
What to wear/bring to class: Please wear close-toed shoes to all classes. If you have shoulder-length hair or longer, please wear it back and away from your face; we have plenty of hair ties in the kitchen for you to use and keep. Feel free to bring a favorite apron or a knife you want to practice with, but know that we will supply all the tools you need at class.
Allergies: Please take a look at the class menu. If you think you might be allergic to anything on the menu please get in touch and we can double check the ingredient list
This class is priced per individual, not per couple.
