Cooking with Class combines all the right ingredients to produce a food-lover’s perfect evening.

Participants choose three chefs and interact with them, actually making the dishes and learning their techniques.

  • 22 top Northwest chefs provide hands-on training to small groups of 8. 
  • Each chef trains three groups of people for 30 minutes each.
  • Wineries pair their wines with the chefs' food.
  • Live auction and door prizes with your hosts Auctioneer Fred Northup, Jr., and Chef Jeremy McLachlan of Salty's Seafood Grills.

Guests interact with chefs during the evening

The evening starts with fresh-shucked oysters from Taylor Shellfish on the front deck: fresh oysters, oyster-friendly wine, beer, and French Cider, and that fabulous Salty's view!

And, best of all, it’s a fundraiser, with proceeds benefiting Pike Place Market Foundation

Cost is just $150 per person (no refunds as this is a fundraiser).

This year's event takes place again in the banquet rooms at Salty's on Alki. Check in for registered attendees begins at 6 p.m. (pre-registration is a must for this sell-out event). Classes begin at 6:45 p.m.

And just so you know, Salty's has donated their venue, chefs, and food for 16 years now. Could we please have a round of applause? They're amazing!
