April looks like a great month to take a free cooking class in San Francisco at Williams-Sonoma’s free in-store cooking & technique classes. The specific times may vary from place to place, and you’ll need to RSVP. Sundays are typically tech class days, and this month’s free cooking classes in San Francisco include:
FROM SCRATCH – SAUSAGE
Sunday, April 3
This series of free cooking technique classes will have you rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty in the kitchen. The first class is all about making sausage, a basic charcuterie skill that’s surprisingly easy to master at home. Learn how to select and season meat, whether your ambition is homemade breakfast sausage or something more classic and Italian.
Here’s a basic primer: pasta fresca (fresh pasta), pasta fatta in casa (pasta made at home), pasta fatta a mano (pasta made by hand), sfoglia (“thin sheets” of pasta), and pasta all’uovo (egg pasta). These are just some of the many terms Italians use for homemade pasta. And while making pasta takes time, it’s time well spent. This class will walk you through the basic ingredients and equipment needed for making authentic Italian style pasta.
EGGS – SWEET & SAVORY
Sunday, April 17
Eggs are the original protein-packed perfect food. As a main ingredient, they’re incredibly versatile. In this class, we’ll show you how to make both sweet and savory egg dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner—and snacks in between. From simple and casual to classic, it’s all about the egg.
