Cooking Instruction on the Westside

My daughter is finally out on her own and wants (needs) to learn more about cooking for herself. Does anyone know somewhere she can take some basic cooking classes?
Maybe a YMCA, or the Learning Annex, or some such place? Please notice that I am not speaking of a culinary school. She works full time, so she wouldn't have time for that. Thanks Chowhounds !

  1. Chef Eric's Culinary Kitchen (Pico & Pelham -?-) is the the best school/class I've found.
    Just gave my graduating granddaughter their 4 week "basic training" class which is wonderful. One night a week, 7:00 - 10:00 for four weeks. This is fully hands-on, followed by a full 6-7 course, great meal every week It's about $350, and worth every cent. They also have everything from single classes, to a complete course for professional chef training. Most importantly, Chef Eric is a born teacher.
