Professional hands-on, but short-term cooking classes

I am in SF for 3 weeks in August and mid Sept and am looking for a cooking class to take. preferably week long or over the course of 2 weeks, and more similar to the way professional cooking classes are conducted -- very hands-on and lots of multi-tasking and each person makes every single dish on the menu, rather than splitting up the work. I book a Basics class in Philly at The Restaurant School and it was like it, and I learned so much.

Anything similar in the Bay Area?

  1. The few professional ones are going to be pricey. Here are a few

    1. Maybe not what you are looking for, but Cavallo Point at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge on the Sausilito side has cooking classes by professional chefs. It seems like it would also be a nice place to stay.

      1. Not in SF proper, but CIA in St. Helena has boot camps. I've been to the weeklong boot camp in New York and it was a fantastic experience.
