Please recommend intimate cooking classes
Could anyone recommend a cooking class for the novice, non-vocational participant in the Bay Area that is intimate, truly helpful and fun? This is a gift for a friend...I don't live in your area, so I'm not up to date on schools that fit this profile. I am not looking for something akin to Sur La Table, where participants sit in folding chairs looking at a cook top reflected by a mirror. Something on the smaller side, with real participation, where the instructor is very knowledgeable and capable of teaching well.
