The Cooking School at Cavallo Point

A Place to Savor

The Cooking School is an inviting place to gather, learn and indulge the senses. Filled with natural light and state-of-the-art culinary equipment, it celebrates the love of food, taste and cooking's simple pleasures. The educational experiences explore relationships among local agriculture, farmers, ranchers, fishmongers and artisan producers. Classes focus on classic culinary techniques, seasonality and sustainability. Our mission is to inspire people to create, share and eat!
