The Uncommon Café, 477 Powell Street, is hosting some fun new cooking classes to help you ‘sharpen’ your culinary skills. Valentine Kitamura owner of Tartine Maple will be leading the two upcoming classes. Valentine was born and raised in France and is a chef that has worked in hotels in Paris, Singapore, New Orleans and Toronto. She now works with The Uncommon Café, a commissary and café, located just across the street from Oppenheimer Park. The Uncommon Café and Valentine have partnered to offer a series of cooking class once per month. The first one they have lined up is Wednesday, January 27th Kitchen Skills Series #1. Their first class is intended to help novice cooks get some basics in the kitchen. With the cold winter weather, their first class in this series will introduce you to making “Stocks, Soups and Stews”. The cost of this class is $60, but get $10 off if you book early. You can register at Eventbrite.
On February 10th, you and your partner are invited to learn how to prepare a romantic dinner. This will be a demonstration cooking class. You will be served the entire dinner prepared that evening by candle light which will be paired with wine. The cost of this class is $70. Again, to register visit Eventbrite. If you register in advance save $10 per person. Bon Appetit! UPDATE: February 10th class is SOLD OUT.
