Cooking classes for newlyweds?
Our newly married friends are moving to LA this month, and we thought that we'd give them a gift certificate for a cooking class as a wedding present. Does anyone have recommendations for either a cooking school or a housewares/cookware store that offers fun recreational classes?
I recently took a cooking class at Hipcooks www.hipcooks.com and there were several couples who were taking the class as well. The classes are small, 12 people max, and they are hands on. I thought that the class was beneficial to both novice cooks and seasoned cooks. The class was a blast!
Not necessarily geared for "newlyweds" per se, but Wildflour Baking Company in Sierra Madre does very good cooking classes.
Also, something a bit more formal (and expensive) are the ones at Providence. www.providencela.com

I've taken a few classes at this place in Culver City called The New School of Cooking.
I really enjoyed them. http://www.newschoolofcooking.com/home.html
I have a favorite instructor from there, I just can't say enough good stuff about the Thai class I took, I learned SO much, and it was fun. His name is Jet Tila. I've since moved but if I was still living in LA I would be taking every class he offers. I think he also teaches classes at other places you can check his website.
