Cooking Classes in Delaware or Philly?

My boyfriend surprised me with a hands on cooking class at Celebrity Chefs on 202 last week and we really enjoyed ourselves. Has anyone been to any good cooking classes lately?

  1. They have some good ones at La Cucina at Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia.

    1. The Dilworthtown Inn just south of West Chester offers some interesting classes at their Innkeeper's Kitchen. I've been to two of their classes. They weren't "hands-on" so much as demonstrations by celebrity chefs. Then you get to taste everything that's prepared as part of a wonderful dinner. http://www.dilworthtown.com/ikk_cours...

        I've never taken one of her classes but have always heard good things.

          I wanted to report that I'm attending her Thai cooking class next Thursday night! I'm very excited to go and see what's in store. It's $40 for a 4 course dinner and it's BYOB. I certainly check back and tell how everything goes. Thanks for the rec!

        2. Never taken one of Sushi making classes but anyone who has tried to make sushi at home knows how difficult it can be to make something beautiful out of vinegared rice and nori. Mikimoto Asian grill sushi bar has leading sushi instructors, are in DE to help. Whether the simplicity of a spicy tuna roll is what your taste buds crave, or if the creative fusion of traditional Japanese sushi and other culinary treats is what excites your palette, the attraction of sushi in all its forms cannot be denied

          1. Nage and Big Fish Grill offer cooking classes. Here is information: http://myemail.constantcontact.com/Na...

              Nage's sister restaurant, Abbott's Grill in Milford, DE also does cooking classes. I attended the last one (slow cooking - short ribs, tomato confit and cider-roasted veggies) and it was great! Fun, entertaining, and the food was on point.

            2. I tried some hands on cooking at haneeda's kitchen - very friendly host and tasty indian food. I got to learn how to prep and cook popular indian dishes and had a wonderful sit down lunch with the food we prepared. Am def going back again - http://www.haneedaskitchen.com

              1. The Chef's Haven is in Hockessin, and they do lots of fun cooking classes. Here's a link:

                  I haven't taken any classes (hope to do so this year), but Chef Mark prepared poached salmon for a 50th Wedding Anniversary party that I had for my parents. The dish was wonderful and the guests raved about it for weeks! I have spent some time talking with Chef Mark and have always come away learning something new.

                2. Don't know if this qualifies, but Williams-Sonoma stores in Christiana Mall and Glen Mills (Brinton Lake) offer item-specific (cookies, BBQ, poultry, steak, etc.) most weekend day mornings.

                  I've gotten some great tips from these demos. While there is no hiding the fact that they use Williams-Sonoma goods, the folks are quite straight forward with alternatives that maybe you cannot find at WS.
