We can’t all be Salt Bae, but if you are someone who is looking to improve your cooking/baking skills, impress a date or give a thoughtful, out-of-the-box gift, why not check out a cooking class in Los Angeles?

While many “cooking classes” actually end up being little more than an overpriced demonstration (because let’s be honest: you can watch those for free on Youtube), here are 3 hands-on cooking classes in Los Angeles.  And, a word to the wise: while cooking classes in Los Angeles aren’t in short supply, many tend to fill up fast, so be sure to book your class as soon as you find it!
