I don’t know about the rest of you, but I cooked more at home in 2020 than I probably have in my entire adult life. If you’re looking to expand on your newfound love of the kitchen, a cooking class at Savoir may be just the ticket.

Classes range from cooking with cast iron to specific ethnic cuisines and prices for classes vary from $39-$200, depending on the class. You can view the full class schedule on their website here.

The Columbus Cultural Arts Center has been in the business of teaching for nearly 40 years. This program, which is offered through the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department, offers courses that vary from ceramics to painting to weaving and everything in between. In order to register for classes at the CAC, the first step is creating an account with the Recreation and Parks Department.

After that, you can explore the full class list on the CAC’s website. In-person programming is scheduled to begin on January 25th.
