Questions and Answers
WHERE CAN I BOOK A CLASS OR PIRVATE CHEF SERVICES?
Please email or call us to check availability. You can find all of our contact information on our ALL BOOKINGS/CONTACT US page.
DO YOU OFFER OTHER CULINARY ADVENTURES OTHER THAN WHAT'S LISTED ON THE WEBSITE?
We are happy to customize a class to help you reach your personal culinary goals. Please contact us directly at or at 415-350-9409 to discuss your needs.
I ONLY SEE ONE SAMPLE MENU ON THE WEBSITE, DO YOU CHANGE THESE?
SPK sample menus change frequently. If you’d like to see other menus that we’ve posted we will be happy to send some to you directly.
DO WE GET RECIPES FOR EACH DISH IN CLASS?
Yes, you do. We believe that a recipe is one of many vehicles to get you to where you’re going. While recipes are important, we also want to make sure you understand the “how and why” of what you are cooking so you can apply it to other dishes and cuisines in the future. SPK is here to help demystify cooking and make it a rewarding experience.
HOW LONG IS EACH CLASS?
Each classes typically will last 3-3.5 hours, but time varies with different menus and the participants ability levels, rest assured nothing is rushed.
DOES SOUTHPAW KITCHEN BRING ALL OF THE FOOD/INGREDIENTS?
Yes, we do. Once we determine your menu all you need to do is be ready to have a fun time learning and cooking in your own home. We will bring everything for the meal.
IS THERE ANY SPECIAL COOKING EQUIPMENT I NEED?
No, there isn’t. The whole idea is for you to be comfortable in your own kitchen, using your own kitchen gear. We may bring one or two items or make a couple suggestions on purchases that you may want to make to help you out in the future.
DO YOU PROVIDE ALCOHOL FOR THE MEAL
Our Chef, Dave, and his partner at SPK are both sommeliers and can help make wine pairing suggestions for your customized menu. We are happy to work within any budget.
WHAT IF I OR SOMEONE IN CLASS HAS A FOOD ALLERGY?
All dietary and especially allergic restrictions should be made aware to SPK before we build the menu for your class. We will, of course, accommodate these restrictions and finalize the menu around them.
I’VE NEVER HIRED A PRIVATE CHEF BEFORE, CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT IT?
Having a private chef come to your home is a customized, amazing experience. All you need to do is sit back and enjoy your time with friends or family. Our chef at SPK has over 15 years of private chef experience.
At SPK we don’t cater, we cook…. you’ll feel and taste the difference.
