Mother/Teen Daughter Cooking Classes
My mother never taught me to cook...so I can't teach my daughter. My solution...we learn to cook together!! I have searched all over the web for mother/teen-daughter cooking classes but to no avail!! I have found kids classes, teen classes, little kid and mommy classes but no mother/teen daughter classes.
Believe it or not, a 13 year old girl actually wants to spend time with her mom learning how to cook...now help me....find me a class in the West LA-SF Valley-Ventura area where we can actually take a class together!!!!
Thanks in advance!
This has some parent/kid options...
Also, I'd look into the classes provided through Gelson's... they let younger kids in!
i know it's not mom/daughter, but there's also www.youngchefsacademy.com
I know jack about cooking school or classes, but every once in a while I get an e-mail from Providence advertising a Sunday cooking class in which one learns to prepare a particular fish or dish with Michael Cimarusti, followed by lunch at Providence. Kind of pricey (I think it was between one and two hundred pp), and probably not your basic cooking skills kind of thing, but if you were looking for a once in a while special treat, it sure sounds like a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

I don't think you want a theme class actually. A great cooking class/program will be fun no matter what.
That said, I think you and your daughter might really enjoy Hip Cooks. They have two locations you can try -- one in a great artists' loft downtown and one on the westside.
I've been to a class at The New School of Cooking in Culver City and they are solid. This is a real school (although not at the level of CIA or pther two-year programs) so the classes open to the public are good and the facilities are pretty nice.
Finally, Sur La Table has some nice classes to try. They give classes at the location in The Grove and you get a discount on any purchases in the store that day.
There are so many offerings in the Los Angeles, and the above are just three I've had good experiences with.
Whatever you decide, I wish you well. It sounds like so much fun.
