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?

    1. I recently took a cooking class at Hipcooks 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!

      1. 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.

        1. I've taken a few classes at this place in Culver City called The New School of Cooking.
          I really enjoyed them.

          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.
