Best Seattle Cooking Classes

Cooking Classes

Eat Seattle's cooking classes consists of a tour through the famous Pike Place Market where the chef will explain the local and seasonal produce as he/she selects the ingredients for the menu being cooked. The group ends up in the beautiful Atrium kitchen in the market where the chef instructs the preparation of the menu; providing tips on cooking techniques, information about the meal and tidbits of Seattle’s history.

We then sit down to indulge in our gourmet dishes. The menus are thoughtfully designed to learn new techniques, maximize seasonal flavors and inspire your inner-chef to replicate these recipes at home.

Format is a combination of hands-on and demonstration to ensure that our guests get the most of the teachings and those that would like to participate can do so. Please email us if you have questions regarding the format: info@eatseattletours.com
