Because we bring the fun to you!

Our culinary classes in San Diego and Orange County are different from most in that they are not taught at a specialty kitchen.

All these recipes can be prepared in your home kitchen using familiar kitchen supplies. Our program is taught by professional personal chefs trained in the culinary arts. Our Certified Food Safety Managers ensure that the methods we teach are safe for your family. When you choose one of our hands-on mobile cooking classes, we bring our classes to your location!

“We hired Chef Pharrell for a Mothers Day dinner for our family. Very simply, she did what she said that she would do! She was easy to work with to create the menu and very accomodating to our dietary issues. Food looked great and tasted great. It was appreciated by all and made the day all that more special.”
