My brother in law and had such an amazing time with the folks are Silver Whisk cooking classes. Jake and his team were charming and gifted hosts...and an excellent cook! It was such a pleasure to be welcomed to their cooking class.
You can dabble in a little bit of everything, as they offer classes for professional chefs and bakers, first-time cooks, cooks with a special interests (paella, Indian food) and, of course, kids. They told me that most classes range in size from eight to 16 people, but I was told by a continued student that they may even run larger classes for cheaper rates that allow people to sample a class without the usual financial commitment. Not sure if that's true...but you can find out with a phone call. When the learning's over, everyone gets to eat — even in the knife skills class, where guacamole and salsas are often on the menu.
They provide cooking classes, in-home cooking classes, catering, private events for groups...whatever you want. They're amazing.
