The SCC intensive runs for 4 days and 7 class units, from Thursday through Sunday: One opening session on Thursday, 3 p.m., followed by two sessions each on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  All students participate in tasting and hands-on cooking practice with individual attention from Liv and chef-assistants. All 7 classes end with a shared, casual meal.

The course ends with a final 7th session where you are presented with a "farmers market;" you "shop" the market and then prepare a 30-minute meal, recipe free, using the flavor-building, ratios, and culinary techniques learned. We sit down together to a celebratory tasting and meal.
