The Wooden Spoon

If having the entire city of Chicago watch you learn to cook at The Chopping Block doesn’t sound all that appealing, fear not! The Wooden Spoon is the cozy cookery made for those interested in refining their skills in a more private environment. The adorable venue hosts theme nights, as well, such as Paris Bistro and Couple’s Cooking with Comedy.

This class is for those who have a complete love affair with food. Cooking Fools curates classes for 10-32 people who are invested in what they are cooking. The dishes are a bit more bespoke and complicated, but at the end of the day, good pasta is good pasta no matter how you learn to make it!

Give Me Some Sugar

If Cupcake Wars is your favorite show, then book yourself a class at Give Me Some Sugar. One of the best parts is that it is designed for a variety of ages and to bring out the kid in everyone. They also have baking camps for those who have every “How to Cake It” video saved on YouTube. This place is straight up sugary goodness. The most trouble you’ll have in class is not licking the spoon!
