A hands-on in-person cooking class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer. This class is limited to 12 students. Review our registration and cancellation policies here. Masks are welcome.


Are you tired of the same old salad routine? Stuck in a sauce slump? If you're looking to break free from bottled dressings and explore exciting ways to elevate your salads, then look no further! 

This class is a one-two punch: we bring you the best of both worlds—sauces and salads intertwined. While we present four seemingly simple recipes, they have the potential to make a myriad of combinations. Each dressing can be prepared separately and serves as a delightful complement not only to salads but also to a wide range of dishes like roasted vegetables, soups and beans, expanding your culinary repertoire.

Our focus is on easy to assemble sauces that utilize pantry staples as well as a few ingredients that may be new to you like multi-faceted shio koji, savory miso and zippy pomegranate molasses. Get ready to revolutionize your salads and beyond!
