A Hip Way to Learn to Cook

Although I love to eat, I just don't have the time or energy to do much cooking as my time is split between working, blogging, shopping and playing. Knowing that I definitely should cook more, I made it a new year's resolution to experience the joy of cooking. 


I jump started completing my goal by taking a cooking class at HipCooks a few weekends ago. Since it was my first cooking class, I didn't really know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had and how much information was given and (hopefully) retained. We made pomegranate bellinis, chevre-stuffed grapes with pistachio, smoked salmon potato pancakes with lemon crème fraiche, poached egg cups wrapped in ham with mushrooms, hollandaise and hazelnut, and lemon and ricotta cake. Although the menu sounds a bit daunting for a cooking virgin, the instructor was super articulate and her instructions were easy to follow. The class made me realize that cooking does not have to be time-consuming at all...you just have to know what you're doing!








The class was super hands-on, with all ten students taking turns chopping up pistachios, melting butter, and breaking apart pomegranates. Of course, the most hands-on part was the eating!  

Classes are $55 per person and fill up super fast. A friendlier-on-your-wallet alternative is to take cooking demonstrations at your nearby Williams Sonoma. They offer free cooking demonstrations on Sundays AND you get to eat what's been demonstrated!
