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 Salty's Catering Department, beer, wine, French Cider, and that fabulous Salty's view! Treveri Cellars will be pouring a welcome glass of Brut Blanc de Blancs 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 18 years now. Could we please have a round of applause? They're amazing!
