          This article is several years old, but might provide some good leads:

          I've taken classes through the Arlington Public School system (of mixed quality) in sushi-making and Thai cooking and my boyfriend has taken a Senegalese cooking class. Prices are very reasonable and classes are open to Arlington and non-Arlington residents (fees are slightly higher for non-residents). Classes are conveniently located in Clarendon near the metro. Current courses can be found at: https://registration.arlingtonadulted...

            Sur La Table in Arlington has some pretty inexpensive cooking and baking classes:

            Most are under $100.

              I take a lot of cooking and baking classes at Fairfax County and have not been disapointed in any of them over the years. They are all about $70-$100 depending on the length.
