Farid Zadi Reboots Ecole de Cuisine at Spanish Fly

Chef Farid Zadi, one of L.A.’s most dashing and convivial chefs, has retooled a small portion of his previous cooking school effort into cooking classes at Spanish Fly. The last iteration of Zadi’s teaching endeavors was located at Cafe Livre, but the older space had facilities and other equipment issues that always hindered the growth efforts. This time around, utilizing Spanish Fly’s large and modern space in Koreatown, the chef will bestow culinary knowledge from all facets of his repertoire. Each three and a half hour class is $130, and will cover dishes from Spain, Southern France, or the Mediterranean. Participants are allowed to drink wine and eat the efforts during class, which is no one was able to do during their college anatomy dissection classes. Unfortunately, actual dessicated spanish flies will not be used in any of the dishes taught during class. Schedule is below. [Spanish Fly]
