Best Cooking Class

First Class Cooking

If the last time you took a cooking class was during junior year home ec, it may be time to visit Emily Dellas. The self-taught foodie has spent the past four years teaching locals recipes from around the globe, all in the casual setting of her spacious Pacific Heights home. For a very reasonable fee, and with just a handful of other students, you'll learn how to make a four-course meal using seasonal ingredients, while also catching tips on things like the city's best markets for certain kinds of produce. She offers some wine-paired classes, but you can also BYOB, as you'll be sitting at her grand dining table with your classmates to eat dinner at the end. The only downside — Dellas is so popular her classes fill up within hours of her sending out her monthly schedule, so when you find a First Class menu to your liking, don't delay in making your reservation.
