Boston Area Cooking Class

Hi Hounds,
I'm looking for recommendations on cooking classes offered in the greater Boston area. I have a group of about 20 people who get together each December for a holiday dinner and was thinking it could be fun to take a cooking class together this year instead. Who's taken one in the Boston area and what did you think of it?

Thank you.

    1. If you've got 20 people, you may be able to just hire a chef for an evening. "Cooking Class" barely touches it. In one class you might learn a couple of moves and a recipe, but a night with a good chef, willing to explain the nuances of pairings, some quick tips on roasting and sauteeing, and how to choose the right wine would be a genuine experience.

      1. Taranta offers cooking classes in their upstairs dining room. They have some pictures on their website ( it looks pretty fun and that's the chef-owner, so you'd be in pretty good hands (especially if you happen to want to learn a little bit about Italian-meets-Peruvian cooking).

          1. I know Orleans in Davis Square was offering cooking classes over the summer and I bet if you have 20 people, they'd do something for you.
