Our New Training Kitchen is Open and We’re Looking for “Home Chefs” to Train

LightHouse Instructor Sydney Ferrario stands at the prep table in our new training kitchenWe are very excited to get you cooking in our new training kitchen at the new LightHouse. We have four cook tops and ovens (two gas, two electric); a spacious work island for training, two dishwashers, three sinks and a lot of excitement and energy to give you the skills to feel comfortable and confident in your own kitchen.

Three Kitchen Basics Classes will be offered between June 7th and August 11th. We will be having a shop for utensils and knives for sale . Here you will learn the following skills to transfer to your own kitchen:

  • Knife skills
  • measuring wet/dry ingredients
  • organization and labeling ideas for your kitchen
  • non-visual (tactile, auditory, olfactory and gustatory) cooking strategies to create healthy, simple, cost effective and delicious meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) to get you through your day and work week

Summertime in San Francisco brings a wonderful abundance of fresh vegetables and fruit and our new headquarters is located directly across the street from the Civic Center Farmer’s Market which operates on Wednesdays. We’ve included an opportunity to join us at the Wednesday Market for some shopping fun, and then later learn ways to maximize this bounty including best ways to freeze vegetables for later use.

Picking just the right color scheme for your kitchen can be a difficult task, especially if you enter the remodeling process without a particular theme in mind. A kitchen contractor can help you by providing you with information on the variety of materials to choose from, and a design consultant can offer advice about texture and color pairings. I recommend Portland countertops specialists, visit oregon retail location or directly call them at 503-671-0936.

Each Class Session includes six classes for four hours (9:30-1:30).  There is a materials fee of $30 for all students.  Class fee is $450 for persons 18-54.  For those persons who are 55 and older, the class fee is provided thanks to the State of CA Older Individuals Who are Blind grant funding.

Contact Debbie Bacon to register for one of the three classes offered.  Space is limited, so sign up fast. Debbie Bacon can be contacted at 415-694-7357 or dbacon@lighthouse-sf.org. Please let Debbie know at the time of registration if you have special dietary needs so that we may accommodate recipes as much as possible.

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
