SF City College's classes for Home Cooks

Has anyone ever taken any of these classes at SFCC for home cooks?

My mom's interested in taking a cooking class and the fees for these sound reasonable. If you have experience or know of one these classes, please let us know!

  1. I took CAHS 244 (Foods and Fitness). I learned more about nutrition than I did about cooking. (Perhaps that's because the class is geared toward beginners and I already had some professional experience before enrolling.) About half of the 4-hour class sessions are hands-on lab time including set-up, break-down, and clean-up. The other half involves sitting in class. If your mom is a beginner cook on a budget and wants to learn about things like low fat baking, this class might be a good place to start.

      Thank you for that info! I guess she's looking for something more hands on...while she enjoys learning about nutrition, English isn't her first language so it might be hard for her to get through textbooks and assignments. I'll try to find out about one of the other classes. Thanks again!

    2. Just be aware that CCSF is in grave danger of closing at the moment. Hopefully they can convince the accreditation entity that they should remain open.
