Gourmandise School is a hands-on school for beginners as well as advanced bakers and cooks. The emphasis is teaching classic techniques and using locally sourced ingredients. It offers classes and workshops, is open seven days a week and is located (unfortunately) close to the coast in Santa Monica.

One of the school’s local products is cornmeal from Pasadena’s own urban flour mill, Grist and Toll!
