Eat and Learn: Cooking Parties!
What is a cooking party?
Cooking parties are cooking classes with more - more information, more exploration, more fun!
Going beyond merely how to, we talk about the why, the significance, the culture, art, travel, relevant food issues of the day, famous chefs and cooks, influential cuisines, and any other kind of food talk you wish to engage in.
