At Whisked Away, each three-hour, hands-on cooking class operates under the spicy eye of chef Maggie Norris, who worked with mega-chefs Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse, among others, during a post-culinary-school stint at the Food Network. Now cooking in the comforts of her home-style kitchen, Maggie conducts each lesson by progressing from recipe discussion to comprehensive prep time, leaving enough time at the end for a sit-down celebration of all pupil-prepared eats. The calendar currently includes themes such as “Cuban Influenced Dinner” on September 16, “Elegant Dinner Party Menu” on September 21, and “A Taste of New Orleans” on September 30. All ingredients, utensils, cookware, and hankies for mopping away tears of joy are provided.

Taras Slipka brings something unique to the cakes that he crafts and decorates: an art degree.

Dozens of styles and flavors cater to any occasion requiring a formally decorated pastry, from weddings to anniversaries to birthdays.

Bandera’s mouthwatering takes on these and other timeless classics just go to show that there’s always room for improving upon even the most traditional American cuisine.
