Cooking with Class

Pike Place Market Foundation

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

22 top Northwest chefs provide hands-on training to small groups of 8. Click here to learn more about the event!

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, all proceeds benefit Pike Place Market Foundation. Cost is $175 per person. Participants choose three chefs and interact with them, actually making the dishes and learning their techniques.

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 7 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!
