Kick off the weekend with a classic french meal, and one of Julia Child’s favorites, moules marinières, or mussels in white wine, garlic & herbs..

Start the evening with homemade shrimp sliders from Chef Amy Baer Robinson who will teach you to make moules marinières from start to finish. First, you will learn how to properly clean Hope Ranch mussels, locally sourced from the Santa Barbara Channel. Next, you will build a flavorful sauce featuring garlic, herbs, white wine, and of course, just a touch of butter in true Julia Child fashion. In small teams guests will prepare this easy and flavorful dish to perfection; resulting in tender, plump, juicy, mussels and a delicious sauce perfect for dipping fresh baked bread. End the evening with a communal dinner with fellow classmates in the kitchen. This cooking class is perfect for seafood lovers and anyone looking to expand their culinary skills. We hope you can join us!

*Children 10 and older are welcome. Must be accompanied by an adult.

Each class will include local Santa Barbara wines and cheese for guests to enjoy during the lesson.

A portion of the proceeds from the Taste of Santa Barbara will benefit the Santa Barbara Culinary Experience in partnership with The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts.
