Every day I receive emails with dining questions from the general public. This one is a bit out of my league. Can you offer any suggestions?
I apologize for the long explanation…I am looking for a fun opportunity to treat my wife, and maybe a couple of her girlfriends. We live in Bakersfield. We enjoy cooking and trying to make new and better things. My wife actually spent about a week in Tuscany in a cooking class at a villa. When I took her to San Francisco, I set up a day for her to shadow a chef. They let her help out, and even make some things for the evenings menu. They gave her (I paid for) a chef’s coat with her name on it and some other mementos.
Do you know of a chef or restaurant that would be willing to host 3-4 girls, teach them how to do something, let them behind the scenes or something like that? We are wide open to any suggestion you would have. We are all pretty down-to-earth, nothing fancy needed. We would prefer a casual personality to a refined chef.
I appreciate your time.
