Cooking classes in LA?

burp_excuzme Sep 29, 2009 12:13 AM

Hey!
I'm wondering if there are private cooking classes around in LA. I know Patina Restaurant Groups has one in select restaurants, because last Saturday I went for a cooking class with the executive chef of Zucca. If you ever want an unforgettable experience, I highly recommend. I had the most wonderful time, and the chef was open to any dishes you wanted to learn to make.

But anyway. Does anyone know if any other restaurants has such offers?

      There have been discussions before on this. It really depends on what kind of cooking instruction you're looking for. There are the "follow along" type cooking classes where you make something to eat and take a recipe home, and then there are the instruction/curriculum classes which are geared more towards the pro/semi-pro/serious home cook. I'd say 90% of the instruction to be found is of the former, not the latter.
