Whenever people think of romance, they tend to imagine a candlelit dinner under the stars. The only way this can get better is if meal was lovingly home cooked. But what if you don’t know how to cook? Setting a fire in kitchen won’t set the mood, so if you and the stove aren’t the best of friends you should probably stay away from it.
But perhaps you have dreams of making a deep dish pizza that tastes like it was shipped right from Chicago. There are still other ways for you to be able to whip up a fancy dish for your significant other. You can even try cooking together. Signing up for a couples cooking class is a great way to spend time with your sweetheart and also use your new found skills to sweep them off their feet every night with a new dish.
Why You Should Sign Up for a Cooking Class
Even if you’re already familiar with how to work around your kitchen, there’s nothing to lose with signing up for a cooking class. There’s always room for improvement and you might even be able to pick up a few new things at a class. There are classes offered for varying degrees of skill in cooking so there’s always a space for you in classroom. And if you’re already a great cook but your partner is kind of lacking in this department, you can take them to the class so that the two of you can start cooking at home together.
How to Pick a Class
Some classes might focus on just one particular cuisine while others might give you a crash course in food from all cultures. Sometimes your cooking class could be like strolling around New York City, a mix of cultures that constantly interact with each other. It kind of gives the term melting pot a whole new meaning. But maybe some people would really want to focus on something specific like French or Italian. The key is to find something that you and your other half would both enjoy.
Then there’s a matter of finding a class that would both suit your skill levels. Obviously for the couple that knows absolutely nothing in terms of navigating around a stove or oven, you should go for the beginners’ class. But if you both aren’t on the same level of expertise, you should always cater to the one who doesn’t know as much. There’s no sense in bringing a beginner to an expert class, that’s just asking for a huge accident to happen.
So, if you want to learn how to cook crabs like you’re from Maine, make sushi like you were raised in Japan, or make a whole pot of clam chowder the way they do it in Boston, sign up for a cooking class. Turn it into a romantic date by opting to go for a couples’ cooking class. You never know what you might learn during these tandem cooking sessions. You’ll surely learn a few new recipes and cooking methods, but you might also find out a little bit more about your partner.
