You’ve heard of chicken soup for the soul, but what about chicken soup for the heart? A home cooked meal is one of the best gifts you can give someone. It takes time, effort, practice, and every dish turns out unique.

And since Valentines Day is creeping slowly around the corner, show your sweetie… or your best friend… or your mom… (doesn’t matter!) with a well-thought out, carefully planned meal from the heart.  Can’t cook you say?

But for the lot of us who didn’t inherit Grandma’s cooking skills, there are people who can help!

Cooking classes are just a mouse click away.  Here are a couple of classes you can take to rev up (or revamp—never too late to learn something new) your skills just in time for that special holiday.


The large kitchen and small class size (limited to 16) encourages you to awaken your inner chef.  The professional chefs help you learn the art of cooking from the first cut to the last taste. Thursday, February 7th from 7:00-10:00PM learn how to make An Italian Affair, a delicious five-course meal, perfect for a romantic night.

Sign up soon, because spaces are sure to vanish.

North La Brea Ave; 310-824-3586


This is a newer spot located in the Produce District of Downtown LA.  The studio kitchen at KTCHN 105 was designed for learning, entertaining and coming together for the appreciation of food.

If waking your love up with a Valentine’s breakfast is more your speed, sign up for Kitchen 105’s Breakfast 101. You will learn how to cook eggs, cure fish, and make sauces.

Class is Wednesday, February 1st from 6:30-10:00PM, which gives you a full two weeks time to practice making that perfect omelet.
