About This Class

Ahead of their pending brick and mortar location Noosh on Fillmore St. in Pacific Heights, Sayat and Laura are excited to share with you the cuisine that is iconically “Istanbul Modern”.

Sayat and Laura draw on some of the most iconic Eastern Mediterranean flavors and techniques to create unique dishes rooted firmly in Northern California. Join them as they guide you through a menu with influences you will recognize as Turkish, Greek, Armenian, Jewish, Arabic, and Persian. Some of their cooking is done slow and low, and some à la minute, and their professional tips will guide you through all of it.  You’ll learn their take on classic dolmas and bourekas, as well as less familiar dishes that are sure to become some of your all time favorites.

FAQ

What is the format of a typical cooking class?

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.

When should I arrive for my class?

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.

What do I need to bring with me to class?

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.

 

Do I need to eat before class?

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.

What should I wear to class?

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.
