Cooking Classes

cooking classes

Note February 2021:   Until we can open again for inside dining, we are having Solare LIVE! Cooking Classes being held most Saturdays at 11am on Instagram.  We are found @olaresandiego on Instagram.   Please click here to see the details on the latest Solare LIVE! Cooking Class.


See and learn from our chefs as they lead the Cooking Classes that we hold regularly at Solare – in the Solare kitchen.

Our classes are not a “demonstration”.  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.

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”.


Class size is very limited to allow more quality “hands on” time in the Solare Kitchen with the Chef.

Advance reservation required. Classes for 10 or more friends are of great fun for a culinary feast, while learning at the same time!  This is a great opportunity for offer Team Building Cooking Classes for corporate and other private groups.
