A hands-on in-person cooking class culminating in a dinner served with wine and beer. Chef knives will be provided to students for in-class use. This class is limited to 12 students. Review our registration and cancellation policies here

 

Join Chef Gracie Schatz, for a class in the basics of using your chef's knife at home. We will discuss the ins and outs of knife use, care and safety. You will walk away knowing how to maintain a sharp edge and the best way to cut vegetables and herbs. This is a great class for beginners.

This class includes our Knife Skills manual for reference when cooking at home. The vegetables cut in this class will be used by each student to create their own individual salad, with a shared buffet of vinaigrette, fried shallots, minced chili, roasted peanuts, and optional roast chicken meat to garnish. Wine, beer and bread will also be served.

If you have allergies or dietary restrictions that concern your ability to cook along, please e-mail info@18reasons.org before purchasing a ticket.

 

Let’s Cook Together!

 

 

Gracie Schatz has been in the food industry for over fifteen years. In her career, Gracie has worked in a variety of places: as a baker and private chef in Eugene, OR, farming and cooking in Italy, raising pigs in the Sierra Foothills, butchering at the Fatted Calf in San Francisco, managing Avedano’s in Bernal Heights, cooking at Bay Area restaurants Molina and Cala and her own pop-up restaurant, Bread and Bones Supper. In Eugene, she started her own food justice nonprofit, Marigold Cooking Collective. After working with 18 Reasons as a guest instructor for the past 7 years, Gracie has decided to move from Eugene to San Francisco and join us as our head Chef. Her dream is to never stop learning about delicious food, to never stop exploring the many nuanced ways that food brings us joy, connection to culture, identity, seasons and community. 18 Reasons feels like the perfect place to explore this dream and she is so excited to be here!
