How It All Started

Paolo’s started as a dream of Paul’s when he was 8 years old. He knew he wanted to be a chef. Fortunately, he had a training program available at this young age--his Italian mother to cook with at home and his father to show him the restaurant business as the owner of the Golden Steer Restaurant in Kent.

Paul’s desire to become a chef and restaurant owner never wavered. He began working in the family restaurant when he was 15 years old. After high school, he completed the Food Sciences program at South Seattle Community College and offered an opportunity to help open Kirkland Roaster and Ale.

Date TBD

Check back for details of Paul's next hands-on cooking lesson. There is typically at least one 2-hour session that begins promptly at 12:30pm on a Saturday. The cost is $55 per person (unless otherwise noted), and includes an appetizer and cookbook. Call or e-mail to suggest dishes for future classes.
