PICK A SAN FRANCISCO
TASTE SAN FRANCISCO
Life is short but delicious. We believe laughter and learning belong together and that local food tells stories that re-connect us with each other and the world around us. Stretchy Pants is a versatile culinary experience company that reinvigorates the locals’ passion for their city’s food scene. Our experiences include food walks, cooking classes, and custom food events. By keeping it small, focusing on fun, and tailoring the experience, we leave the customer hungry for more. You can trust us to treat you right.
So congratulations. You’ve broken through your food coma. No, not the kind of food coma you fall into after a fantastic sesh of stuffing your face with warm chocolate chip cookies, but the kind of coma we all find ourselves in when we realize we’ve just ordered Chinese from the same place on the corner one block down for the 4th time this month…ok, maybe 8th. Stretchy Pants is here to help. Our food tours, cooking classes, and custom events operate in multiple neighborhoods throughout San Francisco with more to come!
Our food tours and cooking classes are lighthearted – we encourage you to join us in your best stretchy pants. Whichever activity you choose to indulge in, you’ll leave full and informed and maybe a little tipsy!

What are people saying about our Food Tours and Cooking Classes?
Really delightful tour! I did the Pizza tour a few months ago and started out a bit dubious.
As a local to SF, I had been skeptical about the pizza options in the city for a long time, and this tour showed just how much excellent pizza there is around. Also adding in a bunch of SF history I hadn't heard before made this a fun, delicious, and educational affair!Mark E.12/12/2018
Best tour ever! I love going on food tours when I’m traveling because it is such a great way to see a city. This one was by far the best - I learned so much about the history of San Francisco and ate some great food! Win-win. Highly recommend.Caitlin S.12/22/2018
Even though I was the only one in the tour, I had a great time. Kara was very personable and I think we got along really well. It was like seeing a long time friend while catching up over yummy treats. Got to see Alamo Square and Hayes Valley. Tried French toast, sample numerous and unique ice cream flavors in addition to having my own cup, plus cupcake and chocolates. After the tour Kara gave me recommendations on restaurants in the districts I was gonna go later. And I ended up going to one of the places she gave me. It was a sweet adventure that I highly recommend.Vi12/01/2018
My brother and I really enjoyed taking the tour with Kara. The spots she took us to were very nice and interesting. We tried very delicious sweets, and we learnt a lot about San Francisco history and we also learnt a lot about food. Kara is a lovely person and her passion for food is very contagious.Yazmin8/21/2018
