Looking for best cooking classes in L.A.

I've seen this posted a few times, but nothing recent, and nothing as general as just looking for general suggestions. Just read a recent post slamming the Mozza class as hardly a class (where you just sat and watched pizza being made), which might be fun if you were not really in for actual cooking, but I was wanting something with more hands-on and even educational. I know of Williams Sonoma and Sur La Tab classes. Anything else the hounds might recommend?

    Do not take any classes at Epicurean, I had a terrible experience there. I did, however, take a knife skills class at The New School of Cooking in Culver City and it was great. A little pricey at $75, but I learned a lot. And they fed you :)

          I have a good friend who raved about the classes he took at Eatz on La Brea

            we have taken 2 eatz classes and LOVED both. one was the "southern flavor" night and one was "tour of asia" - we had a fantastic time both times and came away with a TON of food each time. each class teaches you about six dishes and plies you with wine or beer while you're cooking... it was great. we will totally go back!
