Scala's Bistro Cooking Class Series / August 23

Scala’s Bistro is excited to launch a hands-on cooking class series.  Taught by Executive Chef Larry Finn and Executive Pastry Chef Kimberly Bugler, guests will have the chance to work side-by-side with these chefs in the Scala’s Bistro kitchen, learning essential cooking techniques and tips, all while creating a delicious seasonal menu.   Attendees will arrive in the morning, and be greeted with a continental breakfast.  From there, the small group (classes limited to 12 people) will be broken off into groups, and move into the kitchen to work different stations to prepare their lunch.  Chefs Finn and Bugler will work with the different groups, showing them essential techniques and tips, and helping them prepare their lunch for the day.  Attendees will then get to enjoy the foods of their labor, along with expertly paired wines.  

Classes will be $150/class, which includes continental breakfast, lunch with wine pairings, and a portion of the proceeds will be benefitting the SF-Marin Food Bank.  Please see below for the class schedule, and the menu for each glass, as well as a run-down of some of the techniques that will be taught.
