Our Cooking Classes offer a truly hands-on experience in a commercial kitchen allowing each student to create Italian cuisine themselves to make at home. Our classes are not a “demonstration”.

The classes are held pretty much every other Saturday, and the fun typically starts at 10:30am at Solare (10am for some classes) with an Italian-style coffee of your choice and a pastry. Italian wine is served for students interested in “cooking with wine”.

The Classes do sell out fast due to the limited size. Please call 619-270-9670 or email us to make a reservation for a Class:

Solare Cooking Classes for May through July 2019 will be announced soon.

Eat.Drink.

This year, some 300 attendees are expected to gather at the San Diego Air & Space Museum for this long-time foodie event. Meet our friends, the chefs, who create dishes inspired by their favorite books!

The mission of the SDCOL is to unite the community to support literacy. The SDCOL works with its network of 29 affiliated programs to enhance quality of life for all. Annually, over 179,000 residents of all ages are provided with no-cost literacy services. Your participation in Eat. Drink. Read. supports literacy instruction, books for children, community-based partnerships, and more. Join us in making the vision of “literacy for all” a greater reality! ~~ Learn everything and get tickets here. Can you guess what our book is?
