The friendly foodies at The Cooking School welcome kitchen neophytes and seasoned seasoners alike, teaching helpful culinary tips and tricks in a warm, intimate setting. Enroll in a special two-hour class taught by a rotating roster of delicacy crafting all-stars, with themes varying based on the time of year and the guest instructor. Upcoming sessions include gluten-free holiday cooking, in which guest chef Ron Jenkins assembles dietary-friendly building blocks into a traditionally flavored feast (Sunday, December 5 from 2–4 p.m.). Warm up with a Soup 101 class hosted by The Smitten Kitchen's Jennifer Dorn, and create quick and hearty minestrone, curried pumpkin soup, and cod and tomato chowder, all ideal for melting Jack Frost's icy heart (Friday, December 10 from 7–9 p.m.). Those seeking a festive wow factor can opt into Jennifer Dorn's cake decorating class, and learn classic and signature frosting designs that go beyond staid smiley faces or finger-cramping pointillist reproductions (Saturday, December 11 from 2–4 p.m.).

The Cooking School's cozy kitchen emulates that of culinary legend Julia Child, with an emphasis on students' comfort and inclusive learning. Pull up a seat at the green-tiled counter and watch as edible alchemy happens between mint-hued walls. Rub elbows with fellow students as you relax, sample the fruits of your labor, and absorb expert instruction, like an especially food-savvy terrycloth band.

The Cooking School at Irwin Street

In an age of gourmet food blogs, high-end ingredients, and artisan everything, cooking can seem more like an optional investment than an essential life skill. Thankfully, the instructors at The Cooking School at Irwin Street have found a way to change all that. During their classes, they pair easy-to-follow instructions with cost-saving techniques to make home-cooked meals both easy and affordable. Classes cater to a number of dietary restrictions, from creative vegan options and gluten-free baking lessons to smoked-meat sessions. Students learn through a hands-on approach, cooking as they go and feasting on their assignments at the end of class. In addition to full tummies, students leave with the skills and smarts needed to turn their home kitchens into meal time headquarters.
