My daughter had her 11th birthday party at Harvard Cookin' Girl, and Bibi and Sue did a wonderful job. We customized a menu of Quiche Lorraine, crepes with nutella and bananas, and hot chocolate. The girls (only 5 total) got to participate a lot, and they loved that. Bibi and Sue also speak French, and as my daughter goes to... More

My three young daughters and I had a wonderful experience at Harvard Cookin' Girl. Sue, a visiting chef from Paris taught us to make Baguettes, Crepes and a delicious omelette. Bibi, the owner, was there to add commentary and expertise. All around we had a delightful time and look forward to going back soon!

The good: the space is beautiful, elegant, clean. The owner, Bibi, clearly cares about aesthetics and has really lovely design sense. She also cares about hygiene and made sure the children understood how to work with food. Her choice of ingredients was all lovely - really nice olives, fresh pineapple, etc.

We were invited to a team building exercise by our manager, and we'll just call him Moneybags, and he wouldn't tell us anything other than we would be cooking in La Jolla. Well, Moneybags held true to form and said nothing except finally giving us direction to the Harvard Cookin' Girl. When we arrived we were welcomed warmly, even though... More

Had a wonderful time at our private cooking class! Bibi was wonderful. She provided educational information about why she made all the cooking decisions.

I was spending some time in La Jolla visiting family and came upon Bibi and her cooking school. I decided to take an evening class on Thai cooking. It was one of the highlights of my stay here. I learned a lot about the food we prepared, ate a wonderful meal and felt welcomed into Bibi's kitchen and neighborhood family.... More

I lack skill in the kitchen but being a part of this made me think, 'hey, I can do that!'. I would highly recommend this place for a fun outing or even... More

My mother and myself love to go to cooking classes and frequent them often at Williams Sonoma, Sur la Table, etc... The Harvard Cookin' Girl is informal, comfortable, and entertaining. Bibi the owner is very informative, easy to follow and a great host. I appreciate her easy tips and tricks she shared with us through out her cooking process. We... More

Our GS troop went on a cooking class trip this Friday, October 11, 2013, and the girls had a blast. They want to go back! They were fascinated with the hand on cooking class. Also, they were fascinated with the pizza and cupcakes made from scratch. They said it tasted awesome. There was an error an we were overcharged, but... More

On Monday evening, we had the wonderful experience of dining with Bibi. This evening was scheduled to be a session focued on French food. Rather than just another French dinner, it was like an evening in France in a "best friend's kitchen." As Bibi cooked and demonstrated cooking technique, we were engaged with her in convivial conversation, tasting remarkable flavors... More
