culinary masters series

opening our kitchen to the world’s finest

The Strand House Culinary Masters Series (CMS) was created to bring the world's best chefs, food and wine right here to our “House” in Manhattan Beach. Owner, Michael Zislis has arranged a creative roster of the top culinary talent to prepare very special dinners in The Strand House kitchen, working side by side with our very own Executive Chef, Austin Cobb.

These exclusive dinners promise to provide flavors and experiences you won't find anywhere else. A limited number of events and seats are planned for each year and our CMS dinners sell out quickly, so please call 310-545-7470 for reservations and join our mailing list to be notified of future events.
