Cooking Class in Portland Maine Area

fancyjelly Dec 13, 2010 03:38 AM

I am looking for a cooking class that I can give as a gift to friends in the area. Does anyone have recommendations for a one day or evening class? I am considering the Camden Bed and Breakfast but am not sure they would be up for the whole weekend in Camden. Is there anything else in the area?

        For friends that are interested in raw food there's Girl Gone Raw (http://www.girlgoneraw.com/), and Stonewall Kitchen (http://www.stonewallkitchen.com/shop/90005/900036.html) teaches traditional cooking classes at their facility in York.

        While not quite cooking classes, Wine Wise (http://winewiseevents.com/) and Maine Foodie Tours (http://mainefoodietours.com/) might also be worth checking out as gift ideas.

          Black Tie has a whole bunch of topical classes scheduled here: http://www.theblacktieco.com/cooking_.... Looks like they're held at a range of locations in Portland and a few at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester--

            Not sure if she's still doing it but the Sea Grass Bistro in Yarmouth does/did offer classes a couple of times a month. It's no longer on the web site but might be worth a call. http://www.seagrassbistro.com/ .
            There's also The Black Tie Co. in Portland http://www.theblacktieco.com/cooking_.... I've been to events that they have catered and the foods been pretty good.
