About the Chef

A native of Los Angeles and a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, Chef Dale Greenblatt has been electrifying palates professionally for over 25 years. While working under the influence of Wolfgang Puck at Spago Hollywood and Spago Las Vegas, Dale learned the basis of his cooking philosophy: use quality ingredients and creative, flavorful food combinations coupled with thoughtful preparation and presentation. With this in mind, in the mid-‘90’s, he opened L.A.’s first fat-free restaurant, Gratis, in Brentwood. Since then, Dale has combined all his experience and attention into his upscale, full-service catering company, Gourmet Fetishes. In that time, he has prepared romantic dinners for two up to corporate events for 1,200, as well as opening a School of Cooking, teaching one-class seminars to six-week courses. And in addition, in January 2010, he took over a second catering company, Mrs. Garcia’s Catering, specializing in budget priced, corporate and personal catering of all ethnic cuisines. His knowledgeable, humorous and straightforward approach to cooking will make each catered event a true culinary experience.

School of Cooking

Gourmet Fetishes School of Cooking offers seminars from one class up to full six week courses designed for all levels of cooks, composing meals from the basic skills and techniques taught. The classes are small and interactive, so learning is through hands-on experience as well as discussion and theory. Many of the recipes learned will be relatively simple to prepare either quickly or in advance.
Of course, at the end of each session these foods will be enjoyed over conversation with a glass of wine in a relaxing, dinner party atmosphere. The total cost of the classes are based on the menu chosen and number of students.
Learn at your own pace and custom design a class that fits your needs, all in the comfort of your own kitchen. Class cost includes all food, instruction, recipe and educational handouts. Our classes offer a unique alternative to the common dinner party, birthday gift, or just for a long overdue get together. Check out our sample classes to find one that will suit your tastes.
