Best of Bay: Cala
$190 per person
Our Best of Bay classes bring notable, local food talents into our teaching kitchens to share their expertise in a hands-on cooking class.
About This Class
If the seasonal Mexican cuisine at Cala has you as enamored as it does us, you’ll treasure a few hours in the kitchen with its chef/owner Gabriela Camara. The award-winning chef, originally from Mexico City, brought her cuisine to San Francisco a few years ago and has had quite an impact. Join her to learn key aspects of the Mexican pantry, how fresh seafood plays such a key role in its cuisine, and how to use spices and chiles to build unique flavors that compliment the Bay Area’s most seasonal ingredients. This is a unique opportunity to cook with Chef Gabriela, learning a few of her signature dishes and more about her point of view in the ktichen.

The average duration of our current cooking classes is 2 hours, which is predominately hands-on work. You will be standing for the majority of class, cooking at your work station as your instructor demonstrates techniques and walks around providing individual feedback.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, we can not have students congregate in the building before class starts. Doors will open 5 minutes prior to class starting and we will begin promptly on time. Students will be asked to queue up outside the door of the school, safely distanced (sidewalks are clearly marked) and will be let in the school just before class begins.
Please arrive at the school with your own mask on. You will be given a new, disposable mask to wear in class to ensure what you have on hasn’t been contaminated prior to entering SFCS. We will have extras available should you need one while at school.
Wear comfortable clothes and close-toed shoes (remember, you’ll be on your feet cooking). The kitchens at SFCS are fully equipped with everything else you need, including clean aprons.
Due to COVID-19 regulations, we will not be serving food or drinks during class, We will, however, be sending you home with both ingredients and finished food items so you can enjoy them later, and practice as well.
Wear casual clothing you can easily move around in, and comfortable close-toed shoes. Long hair must be pulled back and masks, provided by SFCS, are required while in the building.
