The Girls Night Out class proffers an evening of womanly bonding and educational cooking. All classes include a three-course meal, and scholars of legal quaffing age are encouraged to bring a favorite bottle of wine along with signed permission slips from their mothers.

The sounds of spoon against bowl and knife against chopping board fill the classroom kitchen at Get Cooking 101 as expert instructors demonstrate proper techniques for turning ingredients into savory meals. Kids from aged 6 to 18 craft a two- to three-course meal that includes dishes such as chicken pot pie, cheese-and-bacon quiche, and wonton wraps. Older students master the fundamental techniques of global cuisines, as appropriately aged chefs accompany class with their own bottles of wine that provide delicious culinary pairings as well as substitute rolling pins. Romance fills the air during Saturday singles or date-night classes, where students collaborate to create chicken milanese with escarole salad and pickled red onions or cheese-and-lobster ravioli with parmesan crisps. Girls'- or guys'-night-out classes allow friends to get together to enjoy each others' company, crafting delicacies and learning how to reinforce doors and windows against unrelenting armies of processed foods.
