Cooking classes in Toronto or area

Looking for enjoyable cooking class(s) as an anniversary gift for an experienced chowhound, who has attended some of the Bonnie Stern classes, is reasonably skilled, any suggestions?

        Thanks, however this is a VERY long list. Does anyone have any experience with any of these, or is comfortable recommending one?

        1. re: married2foodie

          George Brown's hands-on courses are generally very good.

          Two that aren't on this list that I've had experience with are Shashi's vegetarian indian cooking -
          She teaches from her private home and she is quite sweet. It reminded me of cooking with my grandmother, but also good for basic Indian techniques.
          I have been to a couple functions at Great Cooks on 8:
          They can be fun.

      2. I think Sushi Marche (sushi place on Queen east of Pape) offers classes. I can't imagine making it - much easier to pick up!

          nella on Bathurst (north of bloor) is well regarded and offers classes...I can't vouche for them personally, but it may be worth checking out.

        2. Try loblaws they have cooking classes in either the Loblaws or Super centre stores

          1. A friend has done a couple at Calphalon on King at Spadina. He really enjoyed them, and I think that the skill level is a little higher than you would get at Loblaws. Also, Dish on Dupont used to do them, haven't looked into it in a while, or if he likes chocolate JS Bonbons offers chocolate making classes.
            Great gift, why does my husband never think of this for me?!?
