The weekend is quickly approaching which usually means DATE NIGHT. How many of you are tired of the normal dinner and a movie date option? Me too! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good movie, but sometimes change is a good thing. Adam and I have been working to change our tendency to do the same thing every weekend by mixing up our date night options. We are also big fans of activities and experiences across the board. Hikes, snowshoeing, and general action over inaction. I know, we’re crazy. So one of our new favorite things to do together is take a cooking class. We took an appetizer class as our Christmas date at Kitchen Table Cooking School here in Denver. The appetizer class was amazing because we made 6 different appetizers and took a ton of leftovers home. They also serve wine with their classes. Bonus! We took a couples class here back in 2011 too and it was equally amazing. Highly recommend Kitchen Table if you are in the area.
Recently, Adam and I decided to celebrate our May birthdays at Sur La Table with a Pasta for Two cooking class. We loved getting to spend time together in the kitchen, talk with other people, learn a new skill, and eat wonderful food. This class featured homemade pasta with asparagus and pancetta, as well as a salad, and homemade gelato (so good). We loved it! All of the classes we have taken have taught us something new, filled our bellies, and introduced us to some fun people. No more same old, same old for us.
So, next time you plan date night, spice it up a bit with a cooking class and woo your significant other in with promises of good food and wine. Sur La Table is everywhere, but check for a local option as well!
