A friendly and inviting group of neighborhood locals looking to expand their culinary skills, learn about unique cultural dishes, enjoy good food and wine, and get to know more people living both in SOMA and throughout the city. The SF Social-Cooking series is a casual and cozy workshop that will feature a guest chef from local restaurants spanning a wide array of ethnic cuisines, unique wines or exotic desserts, all in support of local businesses. The environment is casual and will follow a simple format including a 1 ½ hour guided cooking demonstration by the guest chef, time to enjoy the featured dish of the evening together with wine, a light dessert and good conversation. Each attendee will receive a printed recipe to take home so that you can recreate the meal on your own. The SF Social-cooking series will be held at the ALNO European Kitchen Design showroom here in SOMA on Brannan Street.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
