Cooking Classes Are Back At Gourmet Warehouse

15 Aug

If you are looking to get back into some in person activities, the Gourmet Warehouse has just announced that in store cooking classes are coming back. If you haven’t already experienced one of their classes, it is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening with some like-minded food lovers. Personally, we also like shopping after the cooking class as participants are offered a 10% discount for purchases made the day of your class. We have set a few of their upcoming classes that caught our eye.  For a full line up of all the classes Gourmet Warehouse is offering visit Cooking Classes.
