The event gives people insight and knowledge about how to cook a gourmet meal, pair it with wine in a very intimate setting. Cooking with Class is a benefit event for the Pike Place Market Foundation who provide assistance to low income seniors.

15th Annual 'Cooking with Class' at Salty's will benefit Pike Place Market Foundation Sept. 15

The 15th Annual Cooking with Class event on Sept. 15 is a remarkable combination of 22 chefs, wines, and a learning experience all to benefit low income seniors through the Pike Place Market Foundation.

During the event participants choose three chefs and interact with them, actually making the dishes and learning their techniques. 22 of the top Northwest chefs are there to provide hands-on training to small groups of 8, with each chef training three groups of people for 30 minutes each. Northwest wineries pair their wines with the chefs' food.

In addition to the classes and food a live auction with door prizes will be provided, hosted by John Curley and Chef Jeremy McLachlan of Salty's Seafood Grills.

The evening starts with fresh-shucked oysters from Taylor Shellfish on the front deck: fresh oysters, oyster-friendly wine and beer.

Cost is $150 per person.

This year's event takes place again in the banquet rooms at Salty's on Alki. Check in for registered attendees begins at 6 p.m. (pre-registration is a must for this sell-out event). Classes begin at 6:45 p.m.
