Cooking classes make for a challenging and delicious date night experience, and are a great way to meet other couples. Hipcooks, with two Los Angeles locations, provides an array of great classes, like “Cocktail Party,” where you learn to create mojitos and martinis, crab dip and tartlettes, “Pasta in Casa,” featuring a menu of pasta choices, and “A Romantic Dinner for Two,” with bruschetta, risottos, and salad. These classes are just some of the many choices, and all menus include drinks of some kind, usually wine.

Classes are offered Tuesdays through Sundays, and vary, so check the schedule for the specific times and menu selections. The price for classes, which is around $60, includes everything you need to cook and eat, and the recipes to try at home. Register for your class online and be aware that class sizes are small. Parking is available!
