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'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.
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 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!
