Recreational Cooking Classes?

  • d

Sort of off topic - but does anyone know of recreational cooking schools in Los Angeles aside from Sur La Table? I'd like to learn a few more skills but not sure where to start. Thanks.

  1. I took a class in Thai cooking at the New School of Cooking in Culver City which I really enjoyed. A friend took the entire professional series there and thought it was excellent. They have a wide variety of classes.


    1. Check the posting in the Wed LA times food section. They often advertise cooking classes

      1. Chef Eric in West Los Angeles does a very good job and offers a wide range of classes. A friend who is an excellent cook took one recently said she would do more.


        1. I have no personal experience with them, so this isn't my personal recco. But, sparing the back story, this guy seems to be a mensch, so I'm throwing into the ring this data point: Chez Cherie, which offers recreational coooking classes in La Canada (near Pasadena). Owner Cherie Mercer Twohy is an IACP Certified Culinary Professional, and occasional poster at Chowhound.


          1. Try The New School of Cooking in Culver City
