Nestled within Ren's wings among café, spa, salon, and yoga-studio spaces, trained chefs host interactive classes and demonstrations during which duos learn step-by-step culinary skills in a variety of cooking styles. Taking place on weekends, each session focuses on a different type of cuisine, exposing unique techniques, spices, and recipes from India, Japan, Latin America, France, and the meatless nation of Vega. Under the watchful eye of restaurant-trained instructors, three-hour classes enrich blossoming skills such as stir-frying veggies, baking traditional breads, and preparing fresh poultry or fish. Once pairs have completed their cooking feats, classmates relax with vintages brought from home to enjoy the fruits, vegetables, and tamales of their labor. During 90-minute demos, eager epicureans stand back and watch, step-by-step, as chefs chop, dice, and prepare continental dishes, and then share the finished products with other attendees. Sessions are during the day on weekends; cuisine type varies, so check the website for scheduling and booking information.
