Cooking School Recommendation

Hi there,
I would like to buy friends a gift certificate to a cooking school as a wedding gift. Not being from the area can anyone recommend a good one in San Fran?
Thank you!

    I'm assuming you mean for a short course or night class, and not a professional school....

    I've gone to Draeger's a couple times and enjoyed it:

    I've also heard very good reports about Sur La Table:

    Tante Marie's also has a very good series of week long courses:

      Done Draeger's a few times. Classes with notables Cyndy Pawlcyn, Jullian Serrano and Rick Bayless and some others not so well known. Not hands on but they do have some that are. You do get to sample the dishes and free wine.

      Have always wanted to do Tante Marie's...

        if you aren't limited to SF, I would highly recommend Ramekins in Sonoma. The place is also a B&B. I have had several excellent classes there.

          Great! Thanks so much for your recommendations. I did mean a short course or class. Cheers.
