Summer cooking classes

Summer is here at last. The wide variety of cooking classes that are available around the city makes that abundantly clear.

The Viking Cooking School offers kids and teen classes ranging from one-day culinary basics classes to week-long camps exploring different meals. Squirrelly, Jr., did a camp two summers ago at the downtown location and he loved it. In addition to the kids and teens, the old folks are included too with classes like sushi making and food and wine pairing. We attended a demo in the new Viking space and loved it.

The Young Chefs Academy in Cordova focuses strictly on the younger set. This July three-day mini camps will explore the western U.S. The YCA also hosts birthday parties.

Williams Sonoma in Germantown is offering Thursday night classes throughout July to help you prepare or all your summer meals. Call the store for details on local events.

The classes I am really excited about will be at Crave Catering. Every week at the farmers market, we get excellent bread from Crave. We missed a recent class on tapas, but we hope to be there for the next session. The website and Summer schedule are still being developed. I’ll be sure to report when they are available.
