Cavallo Point Cooking School - Part I

I'm a lucky, lucky girl.  I have such a wonderful hubby. And I live in one of the most amazing places on Earth - San Francisco.

Don is the BEST gift giver ever. Hands down. He's the best. I've never known anyone like him. He always knows just what gift to give. For our anniversary he gave me (us) dinner for two at the Cavallo Point Cooking School. AMAZING. This is not for everyone. But it is absolutely perfect for me. I couldn't WAIT to go.

Foggy view of San Francisco.

View of all the buildings at the resort in the Presidio.
(They are all old army barracks that have been beautifully resorted and updated.)

First of all, Cavallo Point Resort is kind of fancy, schmancy, in a low-key/luxury sort of way, and it's located right here in Sausalito/Presidio. I don't know about you, but I love low-key Fancy Schmancy. I mean, they have a dog dish for your pooch near the front door. But rooms cost $300-650 bucks. That's low-key fancy in my world.

We stopped by once when it first opened in 2008 and had a glass of wine on their beautiful deck. We promised ourselves we would come back someday and try the restaurant or go to the cooking school.

Flash forward two years. (My how time flies.) And Don got the brilliant idea to take us there to celebrate our anniversary.  YEAH!!

So on Saturday, July 10th we headed over to Cavallo Point for our evening of great food, wine and cooking lessons!! (Elli was at a friend's for the night. Woo hoo! Thank you, Kristin!)

I had a really nice invitation for the two of us that outlined the dinner and gave some info about the chef. I was reading it in the car and looking for the address, or which building the class might be in, when Don gave me a funny look. "What? Don't you think it's weird that they don't have the address on the invitaiton? It just seems like it would." I said.  He replied, "I made the card." I was shocked. "Really? This card is awesome. You should show it to them. They should send this out to everyone that signs up!" I seriously thought it was from the resort. See what I mean? He's awesome. He took the time to design this super cool invitation - that looked so authentic I thought it was from the resort.

Anyway, we arrived about 30 minutes early so we could sit in their bar and have a glass of wine before we headed upstairs to the cooking school. Ahhh. Yummy Rosé for Don, and Sauvignon Blanc for me.

I could do this every Saturday. We just need a million dollars.

We finished our wine and headed upstairs!!!

Here's a sneak peak at the menu. Which will be........
