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.
