SEATTLE CUCINA COOKING SCHOOL leads creative, hands-on classes to improve students’ nutrition, how they relate to their families and community, and how they participate in sustainable food systems. Cofounders, Alice and Erica, teach in local schools, community centers, and after-school programs in the greater Seattle Area.
Erica has worked as a professional cook for the past few years, most recently at the James Beard Award-nominated restaurant, Canlis. She has managed a food cooperative and loves working alongside peers to bring the greater Seattle community delicious, wholesome food.
Sign up for this hands on Cooking Crash Course with Seattle Cucina Cooking School! Each week we’ll whip up a recipe that focuses on important cooking skills. We’ll learn how to work with delicious winter vegetables, make classic sauces from all over the world, make a well-rounded dinner, bake bread and dessert, prepare the tastiest soups, cook off certain cuts of meat and much much more!
By the end of this series, students will have the practical skills necessary to begin cooking at home, and will have the knowledge necessary to eat food in a wholesome, nutritional, and sustainable manner. Class prices include a large snack.
