GourmetWarehouseLogoThe Gourmet Warehouse has a great line up of cooking classes coming up in the New Year including Sushi Making, a Taste of Morocco, Chinese Takeout, Global Vegetarian, Tasty Thai and a few more.  Having recently attended the French Bistro cooking class which came with wine and lunch, I must say this is a great way to spend an afternoon. Of course, there is always shopping after the cooking class as participants are offered a 10% discount for purchases made the day of your class.  For a full line up of all the classes Gourmet Warehouse is offering in the New Year, visit Cooking Classes.  We’ve set a sample of some of the delicious classes they have lined up in the New Year:
