Cook with me!

Join me in my Italian cooking classes, where I share what I learned in culinary school in Florence, while making fresh pasta at Eataly, and from generally being very interested in the wonderful realm of regional dishes.

How it works

Open virtual classes: I host fun, informal group Zoom cooking lessons about once a month. Classes run for about 1.5 hours, and we'll usually make one main dish with an optional side or two. Rates run from $20 to $30, depending on the dishes, and class size is capped at 30. Sign up for my email list and follow me on Instagram to get the word on these.

Private virtual classes: Need a fun Zoom activity to do with friends or coworkers? I'd love to help you! In a 1.5 to 2 hour class, we'll make a fresh pasta dish with a vegetable-based side, both of your choosing from my list of menu options. I have a $175 flat rate for groups of 9 or fewer. For groups of 10 or more, the rate is $20 per person. See this info sheet for more information and email me to arrange your event.

Special-occasion private classes: I would be honored to cook with you for your birthday, anniversary, or just because. My special-occasion private classes are customized just for you, from the date and time of your choice to the perfect multi-course menu based on the season and your group's preferences. For in-person events in the Los Angeles area, I'll do the shopping and come to you. For virtual events, I'll send you a shopping list and detailed instructions and will be available to answer pre-class questions via text, phone, and FaceTime. Rates vary based on class size and length; please email me to inquire.


"Cooking with Sara for our office event was such a blast! Office events can sometimes be a bit awkward with so many people doing one virtual activity, but Sara got everyone chatting and having a great time. And the pasta was incredible - my roommates and I made it again a few days later. 11/10!!!"

— Bailey Dunn (Private virtual office class)

"My boyfriend and I loved cooking with Sara for a special date night! Sara communicated everything we needed well in advance and worked with us to create a menu we would both enjoy. We felt like professional chefs making our own pasta and trying new dishes in the kitchen! I would love to take another class with her ASAP so I can hear more about her time abroad and learn more authentic Italian cooking!"

— Blair Bou-Chebl (Private virtual couple's class)

"10,000% recommend! Sara was such an amazing instructor and designed such a unique and fabulous menu for us. Her instruction was extremely detailed and informative, but she also made the class super fun! The food turned out AMAZING and it was such a wonderful night we always look back on."

— Holly Hubsher (Private virtual couple's class)


"Sara is such an amazing Chef! I hosted a pasta class with her after taking her Valentine's Day one and it was amazing. Her Fumo Pasta recipe was delicious. I've already made it 5 times. She was so nice and easy to learn from, plus the recipe was easy enough that I've been able to repeat it several times. I can't wait to take a class with her again."
