San Francisco Cooking School

San Francisco, California

Scoring a weekend table at Locanda can be tough, but spending a Saturday learning how to hand-stuff cappellacci with the Italian restaurant’s chef is easier than you’d think. The San Francisco Cooking School, near City Hall, takes the city’s top chefs and cookbook authors and puts them in front of the class to teach hands-on lessons in butchery, candymaking, basic knife skills, and more. Classes are limited to 14 students, so one-on-one time in the sparkling new kitchen is guaranteed. For those looking to make a tasty career switch, sign up for the full-time program with the sweetest of finales—an externship in one of San Francisco’s top restaurants.
