Can anyone recommend some venues where I could take cooking and/or baking classes? Thanks!

    Western reserve school of cooking is very good, but they are not cheap. Many higher end grocery stores have occasional schools., so you might calls Heinens, Whole Foods or Mustard seed market.

    King Arthur hosts all day demonstrations in both Akron and Cleveland that are are much more reasonable than WRSoC.

      I just remembered that Tri-C offers 1 year certificates in baking and culinary arts.

      I don't know where exactly you are in the metro area, but the Loretta Paganini School of Cooking offers some pretty professional classes. A more casual (and often healthy/vegetarian friendly) option can be had at the Mustard Seed Market and Cafe. Both Mustard Seed locations and the Paganini school are way out in the 'burbs. In the city, there are, of course, Michael Symon's classes at Lolita. Links below.

        The Viking Store in Legacy Village offers classes. I thought they were a bit pricey, but I was a student at the time, so take that for what it's worth. The cool thing is that they bring in successful local chefs to instruct in these particular classes. Their website has a schedule of classes.
