      I've never been to any, but Classic Thyme in Westfield does cooking classes; and I've heard good things about them.

              bumping this up because i'm looking for cooking classes myself--particularly a knife skills class.

              is there any place near flemington or princeton offering something like this?

                Sur la table has a store in Quakerbridge Mall that offers cooking and knife skills classes. They have a website that has classes offered at each of their stores. You can also sign up for the classes directly on the website.
                I have not taken any classes there but it is on my things to do list.

                  That's a great class. J took it at Quakerbridge and she came home without a nick (!) and they give you a 10% off coupon for future use.

                        Many Wegmans stores have cooking classes, so check with your local one to see what is scheduled. Narirar (90 Acres Culinary Centre) offers some excellent classes, though they are not cheap. The one I attended was amazing, plenty of personal attention from the chef/instructor who was able to challenge and enlighten all attendees, who ranged from practically a non-cook to some very culinary adept foodies. IMHO it was well worth the price and what I would expect from a fine culinary school.
