  • Chowhound
    Chowhound Cooking Classes is a one-woman culinary school run out of the home of Denise Ward, a worldly chef who lived throughout Europe and Asia, learning the regional dishes and blending them with her own Greek culinary roots. In the 3.5-hour Small Plates Santa Cruz class, students prepare a series of plates combining seasonal ingredients from local Monterey Bay purveyors. Amid the sears and jeers, Denise provides chefs with samples of Santa Cruz Mountains, and also permits them to enjoy a BYO bottle imported from their own homes or gas-station marts. Past hands-on classes have prepped plates including roasted halibut with walnut crust and tomato-pepper compote, flourless chocolate cake, and other tasty edibles that can be enjoyed as appetizers or portioned as main courses.

  • Cucina Bambini
    Many people learn better when they feel comfortable, which is why Cucina Bambini designed their workspace to resemble a family kitchen instead of a clinical wall of burners and ovens. Black-and-white tiles cover the walls behind rustic cabinets and ceramic spice vessels. Instructors work with ingredients atop a central island to share their passion for cooking with students of all ages. Children can learn about culture as well as cuisine in Around the World classes that focus on recipes for tandoori chicken or Chinese siu mai dumplings. Adults may mix fresh pasta dough and form fettuccine or ravioli by hand or learn how to prepare sushi rice and use it in fresh rolls or nigiri. During date-night classes, couples prepare a four-course dinner that they will eventually devour or smear across each other's faces.

  • Casablanca Market
    Casablanca Market brings its collection of leather ottomans, hand-painted tables, Berber pillows, intricate mirrors, Moroccan tea glasses and tagines as they arrive stateside straight from the hands of Moroccan artisans, many of whom learned their skills as a family tradition. Hand-painted chairs and hand-woven carpets enliven rooms with vibrant colors and boast unique designs, unlike template rugs sewn by unimaginative robots. Shoppers can further their knowledge of Moroccan culture by attending the shop's cooking classes, which feature traditional recipes and ingredients. The market follows fair-trade practices to ensure artisans receive good compensation for their work and have their pay in hand before their goods ship overseas.

  • Les Petit Chefs Academy
    Les Petit Chefs Academy immerses kids ages 5–16 in the world of culinary art and promotes healthy eating habits through hands-on cooking classes. Each 60- to 90-minute class of 8–10 students tosses young noggins chewy nuggets of information about kitchen terminology and etiquette while filling hands with whisks, pans, and a deep respect for fire. In Kinder Chefs classes, 5- and 6-year-olds whip up healthy grub while honing motor skills. Instructors make basic table manners fun and begin to help solve mysteries of the food pyramid, such as why a tomato is a fruit rather than a vegetable or a juicy red fish. Junior Chefs classes for children of the 7- to 10-year-old persuasion chart a course through lessons designed to help students become more nutritionally savvy, and Senior Chefs helps the 11- to 16-year-old crowd learn to independently assemble entire meals.

  • Cafe Colucci
    If you ask Cafe Colucci founder Fetlework Tefferi, the secret to Ethiopian cooking is in the spices. In fact, they're such an integral part of the cooking that the cafe's sister company, Brundo Ethiopian Spices, manages all of the cafe's imports and the kitchen staff of acclaimed Ethiopian chefs manages the onsite spice blending. With that dedication to quality, freshness, and authenticity, the result is a menu of explosively flavorful takes on Ethiopian food?with vegetarian and meat options?that ranges from fiery to mild. Most people learn something new on a visit to Cafe Colucci, too: the back of the menu lists a glossary of Ethiopian culinary terms and accessible Ethiopian cooking classes are available to the public.
