Food Workshops

Seasoned Cook

Seasoned Cook Food Workshops are for novice and experienced cooks alike to get in the kitchen, roll up their sleeves, and make darn good food. These workshops are founded on the idea that every person has the power to transform good ingredients into healthy, comforting dishes.

  • Each workshop will begin with Basics + Education to familiarize yourself with ingredients and techniques. 
  • We're Hands On - chopping veggies, kneading dough, seasoning with spices, you name it - to craft the dishes you came to create. 
  • We Feast Together, because a communal meal is what it's all about. 
  • Finally, we Reflect, to ensure you take away not only lessons learned, but ways you can bring your knowledge home. 
A successful workshop means happy bellies, new friends, and a confidence in the recipes & techniques you learned to create it again. Perhaps, with your own spin!

Upcoming Workshops

Home Slice: Dough, Sauce, and Fixings

Sunday, April 22, 2018
11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Berkeley, CA

Forget ordering a pizza. Join an intimate group of cooks for a hands-on workshop where we'll learn the basics of making the classic 'za - with our own twist. We'll make yeasted dough that forms a crisp chewy crust, zesty tomato sauce, a delicate homemade ricotta, and a zingy salad to keep things balanced. Added bonus: this workshop will teach you the foundations to a variety of dishes that you can whip up at home. Can't wait to toss dough around with you.

Who doesn't love eating with their hands? These dishes are no-fail, crowd-pleasing appetizers when, combined, make up an incredible Mediterranean meal. Join an intimate group of cooks for a fun-filled workshop making flavor-packed hummus, roasted babaganoush, homemade flatbread, tzatziki, tabbouleh, and falafel. You'll leave with a full belly and plenty of great dishes that you can recreate at home that mix and match with an assortment of meals.

Workshops are led by food lover and fellow cook, Megan Barrie. If you're interested in leading a class (with me or on your own), I'd love that! Reach out.
