Cooking with Class 2018 was a huge success! Thank you to our donors, sponsors, and guests! The 2019 event will take place September 12 - mark your calendars!

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.

The evening starts with treats from B & E Meats and Seafood on the front deck: summer sausage, salmon candy, beer, wine, bubbles, French Cider, and that fabulous Salty's view! French Cider will be pouring poire as you check in.

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

Cost is $175 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 6:30 p.m.

And just so you know, Salty's has donated their venue, chefs, and food for 17 years now. Could we please have a round of applause? They're amazing!
