We recently attended a wedding whereby the beaming bride and groom related their adorable how-they-met story — in some degree of graphic detail (Hi, mom!) — but the point is, that moment in slight discomfort would not have been possible without the cooking class in which they first met.

Cooking classes have that terrific multifunctional element of providing you with both a critical life skill, and a person to inevitably perform that skill for you in the event you prove incompetent.

Blog T.O. has a terrific list of the city’s top cooking classes. Culinarium at 705 Mt. Pleasant Rd. focuses on local cuisine, while Viva Tastings includes a post-date, er, post-lesson glass of vino.
