One Pot Meals
$165 per person
About This Class
After a jam-packed day of work and errands, nothing sounds better than a one-pot meal. Easy to pull together, this is comfort food at its best.
In this class, we are taking four of our favorite one pot wonders and giving you many ways to make those recipes your own. The goal is to create dishes you can throw together in advance, or even on the fly, using ingredients you have in your pantry. Instead of leaving with just four recipes, think of them as a foundation for an infinite number of dishes you can create.
Freeing yourself from recipes and being comfortable improvising will make you a better home cook all around. We will arm you with everything you need to do this with confidence.
Thai Coconut Curry, Seasonal Vegetable Soup, Steamed Shellfish in Aromatic Broth, and Melt-In-Your-Mouth Braised Chicken Thighs

The average duration of our cooking classes is 4 hours, and they are broken down into three segments: Introductory lecture or demo, hands-on cooking, and eating.
The class will begin with a short discussion or demo from your instructor. After, you can expect to work either on a team or individually to prepare the class menu. As a group, your class will prepare the selected menu in its entirety. In most classes, not every student will make every dish.
Learning happens throughout the class, and your instructor will often call out key techniques as they happen in each recipe.
Most classes conclude by sitting down as a group to eat what you’ve prepared, followed by a discussion of each recipe. You will leave with a copy of the recipe packet and a working knowledge of every dish that was made so you can recreate them at home.
Doors open 15 minutes before the class start time.
You do not need to bring anything with you to class, unless otherwise noted in the class description. The kitchens at SFCS are fully equipped and aprons, recipes, equipment, food and wine are all provided for you.
In most classes, you will be sitting down to eat a complete meal that you have prepared along with your classmates. Since this typically occurs towards the end of the class period, an appetizer or small plate is usually prepared early on in class. However, you’re welcome to additionally have a snack before you arrive or bring one with you.
Please note, for our Baking & Pastry classes, a light meal will be provided for you.
We suggest wearing casual clothing you can easily move around in, and highly recommend wearing comfortable closed-toe shoes. Long hair should be pulled back.
