Looking for Something Different? Try a Cooking Class!


Looking for something fun and new to try?  I would recommend trying out a cooking class at Sur La Table!  I did it for the first time this past weekend and it was both fun and informative.  With more than 50 locations in 22 states, Sur La Table is more than just an inspirational store for cooks…it is also a place to learn new recipes and skills through the wide array of cooking classes offered (they even offer summer camps)!  Current class offerings are as varied as: Mediterranean Dinner Party, Summer Macarons, Delicious Thai Cooking and Date Night: Summer in Provence; there really is an offering for everyone!  The classes, which are led by a professional chef, typically last for approximately 2 hours and cost less than $100 per person.

My class was ‘Date Night: Summer in Tuscany’ and the cost was about $70.00.  The class was very hands on and I learned some things which I did not know before.  I felt that my class was very well-organized and was well taught.  The set-up was great…there were snacks and drinks provided plus we got to eat everything that we cooked together as a class.  Our menu included:

  • Bruschetta with a Raspberry and Balsamic Reduction
  • Tomato and Mozzarella Salad with Pickled Fennel
  • Seared Coriander-Crusted Salmon with Salsa Verde
  • Green Beans with Lemon-Caper Dressing
  • Plum and Blackberry Crostada

Oh…and we even got a 10% discount certificate to the store (hmmm…I have had my eye on a VitaMix)!

So what are you waiting for?  Grab your friends, your significant other or just yourself and go…learn a new skill, meet people, eat delicious food and have a GREAT night out (all for less than $100.00)!  Bon Apetit!
