North Bay Cooking Classes

My friend Kay Baumhefner is one of my favorite chefs and teachers. Her classes are like nothing else and I recommend them without reservation. I showed up to offer some advice at her bean cooking class last season and I ended up learning much more than I brought to the table. This season, Kay has this line-up planned:


Petaluma Butter & Eggs Days
Sweet & savory bread puddings and omelets for lazy weekend breakfasts or simple suppers. Includes a butter tasting.

Rice Around the World
Different varieties of rice for delicious & sustaining main course or side dish salads, risottos, pilafs, soubises…

Mother’s Day Tea Time Treats
Transportable finger sandwiches, berry shortcakes & chocolate cream scones, strawberry-rose petal jam and other honoring traditions—treat your self !
