|September 2012 - Braise Restaurant|
There are 12 venues in the Milwaukee area that I'm familiar with, which are listed below or Google Docs, if you prefer. Please leave a comment with any that I have missed! I've attended several classes at the Milwaukee Public Market, and so far it's my favorite location.
Antigua Mexican Restaurant - $50
Braise Culinary School - $45
Café Manna - $40
Coquette Café - $59
Il Mito - $50
Milwaukee Public Market - $30
Sur La Table - $75
Waukesha County Technical College - $25
Outpost Natural Foods - $25
Urban Ecology Center - $20
Whole Foods - $28
Wellspring - $20
I've also listed the price for each class, however the cost can be somewhat deceptive because a full meal is included with some classes and at Braise a cocktail and appetizer are included.
|July 2012 - Milwaukee Public Market Demonstration Kitchen|
The American Club in Kohler ($35), about an hour from Milwaukee, is another great option especially since classes are on Saturdays. I'm familiar with the venue from attending the America's Test Kitchen demonstration this past fall and I'll attend my first cooking class there this spring.
|November 2012 - The American Club Demonstration Kitchen|
I feel like I still have a lot to learn in the kitchen, and as much as I love PBS cooking shows such as Martha Stewart and America's Test Kitchen, I find that I learn best in-person.
For the most part, I prefer demonstration style classes but if you prefer hands-on, you're in luck because half of the venues I've listed above offer hands-on classes.
Have you attended a cooking class in the Milwaukee area? If so, what's your favorite venue?
