    Aside from needing it to survive, food is a huge part of our everyday lives: we socialize around it, bribe people with it and we're constantly looking for ways to make it better. One of the best parts of food is being able to cook it yourself! Cooking at home can be a fun, therapeutic experience, with an instant reward and it's an essential skill to have.

     

    Do you love food, but cooking isn't quite your forte? Or perhaps you're a dinner party hosting extraordinaire and want to add new dishes to your repertoire. No matter what your skill set or level of expertise, these cooking classes will help put you on the track to being the next culinary genius...well, at least at home anyway.* This list has got you covered on everything from canning to pasta making and everything in between.
