- For $32, you get a Foundations cooking class or a Cooking Light class for one (up to a $65 value).

Apropos Culinary Arts Center helps students achieve culinary excellence via classes emphasizing uncomplicated preparation techniques using quality, local ingredients. Individuals can bone up on kitchen skills with one of six Foundations classes, covering kitchen cornerstones such as sauces, cupcakes, and knife skills. Taking place throughout the winter, each three-hour class equips students to re-create dishes in their own kitchens, encourages experimentation with recipes and flavors, and permits students to bring their own beverages. Students can dive into an introductory chicken course or jump into a Meat 101 class to learn innovative methods for teaching long division to a prime rib.
Couples can spark fireworks of flavor with a date-night cooking class, specializing in classes such as sushi on January 13 or pizza on January 21. In the comfort-food-centered Baby it’s Cold Outside class, also BYOB, couples craft a slew of belly-warming dishes including spinach-and-artichoke dip, pork chops with cherry compote, and bourbon-apple bread pudding. Sushi courses prep pairs to cook rice and bundle rolls with choice ingredients, whereas the pizza course teaches date-night patrons to toss dough and create savory pies such as prosciutto and artichoke pizza and a meat trio with beer-battered crust.
