The ninth annual Cooking with Class fundraiser promises to be better than ever.
With each of 22 chefs teaching three, 30-minute classes to 176 guests, knives will flash and flames will fly!
Lucky guests attend three hands-on classes each, with wine donated by Northwest wineries.
This unique way to teach cooking classes has been such a hit, the concept and name have been trademarked.
The fundraiser also includes a raffle of culinary-related items as well as a small live auction with John Curley (formerly of Evening Magazine) and Jeremy McLachlan, exec chef at Salty’s on Alki, acting as the auction tag team.
The event benefits two of Providence Senior & Community Service’s programs–Providence Heritage House at the Market and Providence ElderPlace-Seattle. Both programs assist frail elderly people in King County.
Each year, many of the same chefs and guests return. Unlike more formal fundraisers, Cooking with Class is fun and casual. It even includes the annual auction of Wayne Johnson’s (executive chef at Andaluca) wildly printed chef pants.
