A hands-on in-person cooking class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer. This class is limited to 14 students. Review our registration and cancellation policies here. Masks are recommended.


Sometimes life gets busy, but you deserve to have fun and eat very well.  Thus we have our Short and Sweet classes: two hours of learning and eating, then done and on your way.  This time we will start with a cooked radish salad with brown butter vinaigrette.  Then on to the most amazing grilled ham and cheese ever, topped with a fried egg.  A knife-and-fork sandwich for sure.  We will wrap up our two hours with a blood orange mousse, and re-enter our busy lives with some new techniques and happy bellies!

Let’s Cook Together! 



Born in the Haight Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco, Mike Weller grew up in the suburbs of San Jose, where he discovered cooking as his first profession and lifetime passion. After wandering through typical teenage jobs at pizza joints and ice cream parlors, Mike’s first “restaurant” job was with Sambo’s Coffee Shops, slinging hash and cooking eggs for the bar rush and Sunday breakfast crowds.  He moved on to help open several restaurants, attend the California Culinary Academy, and study under European chefs with Michelin backgrounds. Later, Mike served as an executive chef for catering companies, wineries and country clubs.  When his son was born, Mike transitioned his career into teaching, returning to the CCA where he eventually became the Executive Chef and Director of Academics. Mike also returned to school for training in his new field, earning a Master’s Degree in Education. Having taught for Le Cordon Bleu North America in both online and brick and mortar schools, Mike is thrilled to return to teaching in a neighborhood-based community.  When he is not teaching he reaps the benefits of his backyard garden, kept in perfect order by his Master Gardener wife.
